Haunted Aquarium Returns To Birch Aquarium

Ghosts, goblins, mermaids and sharks?? Haunted Aquarium returns to Birch Aquarium at Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego. During this family friendly event, guests will meet slimy sea creatures, learn about mysterious animals from the sea, and get up close with spooky science. Costumes, especially those that are ocean-themed, are encouraged!

Let’s make fun and spooky memories again

“We are thrilled to be able to bring Haunted Aquarium back again this year and provide our guests with the opportunity to make fun and spooky memories. Safety is still our top priority and the event may look a little different than it has in the past, but it will still be a ton of fun for all ages,” said Cari Paulenich, the aquarium’s Program Manager of Public Engagement.

Guest and staff safety remain a priority

Though health and safety regulations have been loosening across the county, guest and staff safety remain a priority at Birch Aquarium. The aquarium continues to operate at a limited capacity, and to require face coverings for all guests ages 2 and up indoors and outdoors regardless of vaccination status.

Tickets must be purchased online in advance

Capacity for Haunted Aquarium is limited to allow for social distancing and the event is anticipated to sell out. Tickets must be purchased online in advance. General admission aquarium tickets cannot be used for Haunted Aquarium. Children ages 2 and under are free, and children under 16 must be accompanied by a paid adult.

Haunted Aquarium tickets will go on sale September 1. Tickets are $30 for the general public, $25 for members and include access to all aquarium exhibits as well as treat bags, and fun Halloween-themed activities including a “kelp” maze, costume showcase, music and more!

See you there….stay healthy, San Diego!
