Crimefighters, princesses, comic book characters, superheroes, and mummies are invited to explore “Lake Eerie” and the “deep boo sea” at Pumpkins & Piranhas at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium on Tuesday – Friday, October 25 – 28 from 10am – 7pm (last admission at 6pm).
Not-So-Spooky Pumpkins & Piranhas Halloween at Cleveland Aquarium
You are invited to a not-so-spooky Halloween celebration at the Cleveland Aquarium on October 25-28, 2022.
There is so much to see and learn at the Greater Cleveland Aquarium – some that are downright creepy. For instance, did you know that invasive, “vampire-like” sea lamprey are attaching themselves to and drinking the body fluids of Lake Erie fish? That piranhas’ ferocious, blood-thirsty reputations came from a staged demonstration President Theodore Roosevelt witnessed during an Amazon expedition in the early 1900s? That poison dart frogs’ toxicity is derived from their insect diet?
“There is actually a great deal to learn and appreciate about some of the more ‘menacing-looking’ Aquarium residents,” explains General Manager Stephanie White. “For example, moray eels slowly closing their jaws showcases their sharp teeth and might seem like a visible warning to would-be predators, but it’s simply how they force oxygen-rich water over their gills to breathe.”
The not-so-spooky SEA-sonal fun days are included with general Aquarium admission ($19.95 ages 13+, $13.95 ages 2-12, $0 Passholders and guests younger than 2) and feature extended hours, underwater jack-o-lanterns, costumed SCUBA divers, themed décor, a take-home treat bag for costumed kiddos, and a visit activity booklet focused on a few misunderstood animals.
The Aquarium encourages guests to purchase advance general admission tickets online. “We want to prepare enough take-home treat bags for the young ones,” says White.
