Stare down a shark
(Hammerhead, of course.)
Stare down a hammerhead shark in the new Pacific Seas Aquarium - or gaze at green sea turtles, giant spider crabs or octopus. There's a whole underwater world to explore.

Play in the sand
For kids of all ages.
Channel your inner kid and play at the sand stations near our new sand sculpture! Feed the goats, visit the playground, ride a camel or meet a keeper. It's the perfect day to be a Dad.

Meet our wolf dad
(Eight kids is a lot.)
A family of eight might seem like a lot - but Hyde's got it down. His mate Charlotte just had a litter of pups, who are growing fast behind the scenes. Meet Hyde at the 2pm Red Wolf Keeper Chat.
