~ F.I.S.H., Family Inclusive Special Hours, will welcome families in a relaxed setting for a sensory-friendly, after-hours event. ~
In partnership with Shriners Children’s Philadelphia, Adventure Aquarium will host a Family Inclusive Special Hours (F.I.S.H.) event Sunday, Dec. 5 at 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. designed to give guests a sensory-friendly experience.
Sound and lighting adjustments are made during F.I.S.H night to allow guests with sensory needs access to the entire Aquarium for an evening of learning, fun and enjoyment. Among many modifications, the Aquarium staff will not use microphones during shows, the Piranha Falls thunderstorm experience will be turned off and lighting throughout the Aquarium will be altered.
During the event, guests will also have the opportunity to experience Christmas Underwater featuring an exclusive dive show with Scuba Santa in Ocean Realm.
“It is important to us that all families have the opportunity to enjoy the Aquarium and Christmas Underwater,” said Molly Deese, Executive Director of Adventure Aquarium. “We are pleased to offer this special sensory-friendly evening in partnership with Shriners Children's Philadelphia.”
Reservations for non-Adventure Aquarium members are required for this event by visiting adventureaquarium.com/Explore/Special-Events. Discounted admission is $24.99. Tickets are limited.
