1. Dive into spooky fun at the SEA Aquarium
The SEA Aquarium gets a Halloween makeover by way of divers dressed in skeleton suits, underwater pumpkin carvings and ‘eerie’ educational stations for its Spooky Seas event. The Vampire’s Lair and Mad Scentist’s Lab will thrill little ones eager to discover more about marine life (hey, a lot of sea creatures are quite creepy, right?), while Mai the Manta ray wants to go trick or treating with you. May we suggest dressing up as the Little Mermaid or a seafaring pirate on your aquarium sojourn?
The SEA Aquarium’s Spooky Seas is on till Nov 15; $28–$32 (adults) & $15–$22 (kids and seniors). Underwater pumpkin carvings only on weekends; www.rwsentosa.com/seaa.
2. Get up close and personal with ‘scary’ creatures at the River Safari
For those who have herpetophobia (that’s a fear of reptiles), the Safari Boo at River Safari may turn out to be rather nightmarish. For everyone else, though, it’ll be a fun romp. Last year’s Safari Boo saw a huge turnout, and they’ve have upped the ante this year by offering free admission to kids under 12, from 6pm. A new show called Furry Tales puts a twist on fairy tales such as Snow White and Puss in Boots, and features animal stars such as a snake and an owl, while other fun characters (both human and animal) promise to delight.
Safari Boo is on from 6-10pm on Oct 23, 24, 25, 30 & 31 & Nov 1. Tickets are only available online ($15–$20 for adults; free for kids) at www.safariboo.sg, with two admission slots at 6pm or 8pm.
