Ahoy Mateys! Family Fun Ahead at the Tennessee Aquarium
AquaScarium VI: Pirates of the Aquarium on October 25th

Chattanooga, Tenn. (October 18th, 2013) – The Tennessee Aquarium’s annual family-friendly Halloween party, scheduled for Friday, October 25th, is taking on a nautical theme. Both buildings will be filled with fun for “bouys” and “ghouls” for this year’s event, which will actually spill out onto the Aquarium Plaza. 

AquaScarium VI: Pirates of the Aquarium will begin at 6:00 pm with swashbuckling action. “We have two pairs of pirate characters who will be clattering and clanging their way around outside the Ocean Journey building in a choreographed sword fight,” said Mara-Lynne Payne, the Aquarium’s membership manager. “Inside, kids will start their adventure by getting an eye patch and learning some pirate lingo before searching for candy treasure.” 

Kids always have fun posing with costumed SCUBA divers at the Tennessee Aquarium.

It’s always an extra treat to visit the Aquarium after hours, especially when SCUBA divers, dressed like super heroes and other fanciful characters, pose for photos with kids who are equally decked out in costumes. “Our volunteer divers really enjoy entertaining everyone during Aqua-Scarium,” said Payne. “They do a great job of engaging our guests and putting a lot of smiles on faces.”

As guests navigate both buildings they can also boogie like a buccaneer on a special dance floor, pose for a pirate portrait, hug a costumed mascot, meet Magellan’s ghost and discover hidden booty in Davey Jones’ locker. Guests will also get up close to some amazing critters during special animal encounters - including the chance to see some crazy-looking coconut crabs.

Finally, visitors might say, “Shiver me timbers” after enjoying some Blue Bell Ice Cream served up under the pirate pavilion between River Journey and Ocean Journey.

Tennessee Aquarium’s AquaScarium is a Safe, but Spirited, Halloween Party for families with young children (Children must be accompanied by an adult)
