On 23 February, 10 families participated in our first ever Lunar New Year themed aquarium sleepover – Gong Sea Fa Cai Ocean Dreams. While the families spent the night together bonding and celebrating in the company of marine animals, some special visitors dropped in for a surprise visit.
Upon completing the fortune trail and receiving a red packet as their gift, participants headed back to the Open Ocean Habitat where Lyn, the Sea Goddess, shared stories of her beloved ocean. One of the stories was about the Atlantic Goliath Grouper, which can be found in the S.E.A. Aquarium.
The next morning, participants were greeted by our divers in a very unique way before heading to the Bay Restaurant for a special Chinese New Year breakfast.
After a sumptuous breakfast, they proceeded to a Behind-the-Scenes tour of the top of the Open Ocean Habitat. The programme ended with a Manta Moments special, where the participants got to witness our divers interacting closely with the Manta Rays in front of the Open Ocean Habitat panel.
Check out the reviews by two bloggers who joined us at Gong Sea Fa Cai Ocean Dreams with their families. Not only did they detail their experience, they even shared lots of useful tips for those planning to join us at upcoming Ocean Dreams:
Overall our whole family had a blast. I definitely recommend doing this at least once when your kids are young.
It is an experience that we will not forget!
