Escape rooms are an exciting group activity that test your problem-solving and deduction skills in a fun, friendly environment – and now you can help solve a marine mystery with the St Lucie County Aquarium’s very first escape room program, Escape the Aquarium, on Wednesday, October 30, 2019 with three sessions at 6:00 PM, 7:00 PM and 8:00 PM.
Using clues placed around the aquarium, participants will solve a mystery surrounding a coral reef in Florida, and secure their own escape before it’s too late. This program is best for ages 7 and older. Ticket prices are $6 for adults and $5 for children (aquarium members pay just $5 for adults and $4 for children) and the program lasts for approximately 45 minutes. Registration is required. Please call 772-465-3271 to reserve your spot.
The popular program “Aquarium After Dark” returns for two dates on Friday, November 8th and Friday, November 29th at 6:00 PM. Join Smithsonian educators for a fantastic evening of discovery as you explore our darkened aquariums with special flashlights and view the nocturnal animals and fluorescent corals. Learn about this incredible nighttime world that most don’t get to see. A pizza dinner is included in the ticket price, so you can make an evening of it. This great family program is $12 for adults and $10 for children (aquarium members pay just $10 for adults and $8 for children). Registration is required. Please call 772-465-3271 to reserve your spot. Hurry, these programs fill up quickly.
