We were invited along to check out what The Sea Life Centre Birmingham had on at Halloween. We love Halloween, we like the scares, the atmospheric lights and a bit of a show. I thought that the Sea Life Centre would have a great event.
I think perhaps my expectations were too high, but a few pumpkins dotted around didn’t really cut it in terms of Halloween for us. We love (LOVE) The Sea Life Centre, a lot, we go multiple times a year, the girls have a fabulous time, and they nail Christmas beautifully but this felt so lacking.
Maybe we missed something but adding 19 (or something) pumpkins to a venue doesn’t make it exciting enough to make a special trip for Halloween. I feel like the venue has such great potential to be a place you go to for Halloween. I know that there are very specific environments that have to be kept in pace for the aquatic life, but there are plenty of spaces that would’ve happily housed a skeleton or two.
For me, it’s a place you go to in the October break without needing a gimmicky lacklustre Halloween prompt. The Sea Life Centre at Christmas however, I couldn’t recommend more… or in fact going in general.
For us though, this missed the mark.
