Take the family on an experience with one of the largest collections of sharks in Europe, when you visit the amazing Aquatheatre and take in a fascinating daily dive show. With a hosted Q&A session, breath-taking views of the Caribbean Reef, over 1,500 fish, and huge 10-feet Sand Tiger sharks, this interactive event lets your little ones ask the questions, whilst you sit back and enjoy the show.
When you’re ready to come up for air, you can visit the Pirate Playground outdoor adventure area, and watch the kids climb aboard the shipwreck and slides, before trying their strength on the monkey bars!
