Underwater Pumpkin Carve-Off

October 22, 23, 29 and 30

You’re in for frightful fishy fun at SEA LIFE Grapevine Aquarium with several underwater Halloween happenings.  Enjoy a few tricks and a lot of fun treats October 22, 23, 29 and 30 with eerie fish facts, festive tank decorations and underwater pumpkin carve-offs. 

Halloween activities, October 22, 23, 29 and 30:

  • Underwater Pumpkin Carve-Off:  It’s hard enough carving Halloween pumpkins on dry land, let alone submerged in water with hundreds of sea creatures.  Watch highly trained divers dressed in costume compete to see who can carve the best jack-o-lantern... UNDERWATER! (Dives occur at 11:30 a.m. on scheduled days.)
  • Spooky Fish Trail:  You’ll get quit a fright from marine life tanks decorated with Halloween décor.  Be on the lookout for creepy creatures and scary fish facts.
