The Halloween-themed Monster Splash event gathers families for spooky, aquatic amusements. Kids collect candy at Sharky’s Sweet Tooth trick-or-treating stations or frolic on slides and bounce houses in the Little Monsters play area, while adults groove to a live DJ during a dance party with appearances by aquarium characters. Guests of all ages can meander through a haunted mangrove forest, ooh and aah at Halloween-themed marine-animal shows, or use their all-day admission to browse the rest of the Seaquarium’s 38-acre park. This Groupon is valid for admission from noon to 10 p.m. on October 27 and 28 or after 8:30 p.m. on October 31. This Groupon is valid for admission when the park opens at 9:30 a.m., but the Monster Splash event begins at noon on October 27, 28, and 31; on October 31, admission is valid until 8:30 p.m.
As they observe the vibrant exhibits of aquatic life inside the Miami Seaquarium, many guests don't realize that they are walking through a movie set and a hospital. In the onsite lagoon, bottlenose dolphins swim through waters once traversed by Flipper, who filmed several television episodes and films at the venue. The Seaquarium is also recognized as a manatee critical care facility. Its staff has accomplished several historic treatments, including monitoring the conception and arrival of the first manatee born under human care and conducting the first manatee neurological surgery.
These facets of the Seaquarium—along with its many conservation efforts, educational programs, and shows—underscore a united commitment to wildlife consciousness. The animal attractions enable visitors to witness the allure and fragility of oceanic fauna up close, whether they are petting the back of a stingray or washing a dress shirt on the rough back of an 8-foot nile crocodile. Special encounters decrease the distance even further, sending patrons on underwater Sea Treks through the reef display or helping them to lead marine-mammal training routines.
It's hard to pinpoint the biggest personality inside the Seaquarium tanks, but Lolita the killer whale—who performs daily alongside pacific white-sided dolphins—claims the title of heaviest, period. On the other end of the scale, macaws and cockatiels perch around the Tropical Wings section of the park, and endangered sea turtles lounge at Discovery Bay. Elsewhere, a watery playground and three-story ropes course keep legs from growing too wobbly after a trip to Shark Channel or a smooch from a sea lion.
