Sleepover under the sea!

Ever fancied sleeping under the Ocean?

Have you ever wanted to sleep on the sea bed? Well, we can't promise the actual ocean and you won't need to hold your breath - but you and your friends can have a sleepover underneath our 360 ocean tunnel! Get your sleeping bags together and look up to see tropical fish, Molokai our giant sea turtle and of course, our sharks!

All the key things you need to know:

  •         You and your group must arrive by 6.00pm. At this point the group is split and given a VIP tour around the attraction.
  •         Have your group learnt some new things from their tour? Time to test your knowledge on the quiz trail, if you get the answers right there is a prize for everyone!
  •         Then it’s time to take in a 4D film!
  •         After that it’s time for the reason everyone is here, to sleep in the Ocean tunnel, so everyone will set up their beds for the nights.
  •         Not ready for bed yet? No problem we will lead some SEA LIFE games and activities!
  •         Our creatures need their beauty sleep so it’s time for bed at 10.30pm latest.
  •         Our sharks are up early and so are you! We will wake you up between 6.30-7am, and open the shop for you, ready to leave by 8.30am!
  •         We don't have catering facilities, but you are welcome to bring dinner and snacks for everyone. Some groups choose to order pizza takeaway!
  •         Make your morning hassle-free - breakfast boxes (including a muffin, juice drink and item of fruit) are available for pre-order at just £3.50 per person, please tick the box on the booking form if you would like the order these.
  •         We will also offer you an alternative room for anyone who decides they don't want to sleep in the tunnel!
Prices start from £35 per person, with a minimum of 50 sleepovers (subject to a minimum fee).
