SEA LIFE Manchester: the final frontier, has joined forces with Captain Barnacles Bear and the Octonauts crew to bring an unforgettable underwater adventure to its centre.
From 20 May – 4 June, wannabe Sea Scientists will have the chance to become Octonaut Octo-Glow Explorers, on the voyage of a lifetime.
From the rainforests of the Amazon to the deepest depths of the Midnight Zone, the Octonauts fearlessly rescue the creatures that live there and defend and protect their habitats.
Now, CBeebies’ most intrepid ocean explorers are deploying their fleet of aquatic vehicles to Manchester and inviting children and their families to become honorary recruits of the Octonauts crew, by joining their special mission to uncover the secret world of glow in the dark sea creatures.
Young cadets can become Octo-Glow Explorer in Shellington’s Octo-Glow Lab and take part in a range of inter-active activities to discover how creatures of the deep use light to hide from predators, attract their prey and even talk to each other.
Newly recruited sea scientists are also invited to share their findings in the Octo-Glow Lab with Doctor Peso and Lieutenant Kwazii during an Octo-Glow Explorer character meet and greet.
Post-mission, all honorary Octonauts are encouraged to find out about other quirky critters of the seas and SEA LIFE’s many conservation programmes by visiting the centre’s host of non-glow in the dark creatures, including seahorses, turtles and many more.
Jenn McDonough, General Manager of SEA LIFE said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be teaming up with Cbeebies’ Octonauts to bring this unique, immersive experience to SEA LIFE Manchester, it’s sure to be a huge hit with our visitors. Octonauts mission is to rescue amazing sea creatures and protect the ocean, which makes them a perfect fit for SEA LIFE whose mantra is BREED, RESCUE, PROTECT.”
Visitors will also have the chance to continue their voyage of discovery at Jurassic Ranger; the new for 2017 exhibit at SEA LIFE Manchester. Learn how the prehistoric beasts of the ocean have lived on in their descendants, and interact with some of the most powerful predators that once roamed our seas.
SEA LIFE Manchester’s newest additions have evolved from some of the most powerful predators of the past; Jurassic Ranger includes Nautilus, Axolotl, Lungfish, Lizards plus snakes, snails & fossils which visitors will be able to touch during ranger experience sessions! And what’s more, Jurassic Ranger features an interactive dino-digital game, with state-of-the-art technology screens and infrared lighting, allowing guest to meet the mighty Megalodon, one of the largest and most ferocious creatures of the prehistoric seas, and feed a deadly Plesiosaurus.
Octo-Glow Explorers runs at SEA LIFE Centre Manchester from 20 May to 4 June and is included in the usual admission price. Find out more www.visitsealife.com/manchester.
