A round of shrimp cocktails, anyone?
The Vancouver Aquarium Halloween Party Is The After Hours Event You Need This Fall

If you haven't had the chance to check out one of the Vancouver Aquarium's after-hours adult nights, this is the perfect chance. This Vancouver Aquarium Halloween party is the unique Halloween experience you never knew you needed. On Thursday, Oct. 31 from 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. you can explore the aquarium like never before, i.e. in a Halloween costume with a drink in hand. 

At this special party, you can check out the sharks, jellyfish, and other galleries while sipping cocktails surrounded by adults only. Not a single kid in sight. There will be a live DJ, trivia, games, a costume contest, and much more. Costumes are encouraged, but not mandatory. But, come on, you don’t want to be that guy.

Tickets start at $38 for non-members and $30 for members. Or, if you feel so inclined, you can get the VIP experience for $55 for non-members or $44 for members. The VIP tickets include early event entry at 6 p.m., a special VIP bar and party area, a souvenir photo, and a few more tricks and treats we know you’ll enjoy.

Food and drinks will be available for purchase all night long and we know there's nothing better than drinking in places where you're usually not allowed.

On top of just partying at the Aquarium, there are more awesome additions to get excited about. There will be a hands-on wet lab and a 4D movie screening of Reef Reborn.

The winner of the costume contest will be taking home an animal encounter for two, so you better get geared up. If you're not sure what to dress as this year, why not go for some under the sea inspiration? If you're hanging with the sharks and jellies, you might as well look the part. 

If you're looking to do a little something different this Halloween and you'd love a chance to explore the Aquarium without any kids around, this is your chance to get the best of both worlds.

Previous after-hours events at the Aquarium have been total blasts, and there's no doubt that this one will blow you out of the water. Forget about last-minute costumes and underwhelming house parties, let's do this Halloween right!
