Travel, Days Out & Events

Our Visit to Sealife Centre, Manchester

Our first visit to Sealife Centre was back in May, its was a preview event before it was opened to the public at the beginning of June.

We were looking forward to our second visit a fortnight ago, I wanted to see the finished product and Lewis wanted to see the Jellyfish which were missing on our last visit. We were certainly not disappointed!!

It was nice to see the finished product following our visit back in May, also Lewis received a mask to wear and was also given a book to stamp so that he could claim a badge at the end of our visit.

First we had our talk about turtles again, on how they nest on the shores and if the eggs are nested over 26.8c they will all be female turtles, below will all be male. Also when turtles hatch they are attracted to bright lights of cities so sometimes don’t make it to the sea.

After our talk we began our visit, visiting all the different aquariums and also reading the interesting facts as we went around.

This was certainly Lewis’s favourite attraction of the day, the Jellyfish Tank. Lewis spent a while here, watching all the Jellyfish and also changing the light colour in the tank.

Shortly after we arrived at the turtle aquariums, Lewis enjoyed working out his body temperature to see if he would hatch a male or female turtle and Leah enjoyed the Q&A turtle machine and also watching the turtles swim around their enclosures.

Next we visited the playroom, this was closed on our last visit so it was good for the kids to be able a quick half hour play. Leah enjoyed feeding balls into the pipes and also being showered in balls collected in a tank whilst Lewis went for a climb.

These are pictures of the inside of the shark tank and also a finished decorated room, dedicated to sharks.

By the end of our visit, Lewis had collected all the stamps and collected his badge. The kids also chose a small toy each to take home, Leah chose a penguin and Lewis a seal.

Overall we had a really good day visiting both Legoland and Sealife, we look forward to our next visit as always.
