Home >> Singapore Attractions >> S.E.A. Aquarium Singapore (Resorts World Sentosa) – Spooky Seas!

Last week, we were at Resorts World Sentosa *AGAIN* for Hello Kitty Go Around! Singapore.  Our ticket for the event came with an entrance ticket for S.E.A. Aquarium, which was having a Spooky Seas event from 1 Oct to 15 Nov 2015 in line with Halloween.

Once we entered the aquarium, we were handed a little bag with an activity booklet and pencil.  The activity booklet came in two languages: English and Chinese.  So don’t pick up the wrong one! (The first one I grabbed was in Chinese, and I had to backtrack to swap for an English one.)

There were 5 missions we had to complete in the activity booklet, so off we went excitedly!

Ship Wreck

Before we went through the tunnel, MF said he spotted a pirate ship on the right! So we detoured over to take a look at the shipwreck.

That was not part of the mission, but still the whole shipwreck set up was pretty impressive! What a great opening!

Fish Graveyard

After we had admired the shipwreck enough, we continued down the underwater tunnel, where sharks swam menacingly around some tombstones.

At the end of the tunnel, we spotted a skeleton holding a sign pointing to the first activity – Fish Graveyard.

In this activity, we had to match the skeletons of various sea creatures to the pictures in the activity booklet and write down the creatures’ names inside the booklet.

That was pretty easy – even 4 year old MF had no problem matching them.  After you complete the page in the activity book, you can show it to the staff hanging around and they will give you a treat (sweets).  It was a Halloween inspired activity after all! But I conveniently kept the fact that there were sweets for each task a secret from MF.  The last thing I needed was a kid on sugar rush.

Mad Scientist Lab

We passed by more tanks of sea creatures and skeletons, before spotting a sign for the next activity – Mad Scientists’ Lab!

This time, we had to match some gruesome specimens in jars to their silhouettes in the activity book.

Once that was done, we headed off, conveniently steering MF away from the lady giving out sweets to kids who had completed the task.

Pumpkin Patch

The next activity was MF’s favourite.  He received a booklet shaped like a pumpkin with many pages inside where he could draw in faces for the pumpkins.

While he was busy doodling, I went around the check out the pumpkin decorations in the big tank surrounding us.

Just then, two divers popped out dressed in Halloween costumes! MF dropped his pencil and ran over to wave to them!

Once again, thanks to the distraction from the divers, MF did not realize they were dishing out sweets in the corner and we moved on.

We passed by the jelly fish area.  This was part of the permanent exhibits and nothing to do with the Halloween event.  But I couldn’t resist stopping to take some photos.

There is something quite alluring and mesmerizing about jelly fishes.  I know they can be found in just about any other aquarium in the world – but still I never get bored of staring at them as they bob around.

Vampire’s Lair

After passing through the jelly fish section, we soon came to the Vampire’s Lair.  I love the awesome set-up.

SEA Aquarium Resorts World Sentosa Review - Spooky Seas Halloween Event 20

There were some questions to be answered for this activity.   It was not too difficult for adults to figure out the answers, but it proved to be quite challenging for kids.  Many kids kept getting the wrong answers and the staff returned their booklets to them to try again.  Gosh, Teacher Dracula was strict!

Eventually I completed the booklet for MF and we proceeded towards the end of the aquarium.

Potion Parlour

And we arrived at the last activity station on the trail – Potion Parlour.  Over here, you had to dip your hand into boxes and guess what was contained inside.  It was pretty easy – if MF could guess them correctly, I’m sure you can too!

SEA Aquarium Resorts World Sentosa Review - Spooky Seas Halloween Event 24

The staff was pretty impressed that MF could get all the answers correctly and stashed him a handful of sweets.  So much for trying to avoid the sweets.  Since this was the final station, the staff looked through our booklet – which was dutifully completed.  And handed us a scroll of completion!

SEA Aquarium Resorts World Sentosa Review - Spooky Seas Halloween Event 25

Well, I didn’t care much for the scroll.  I was more interested in the Bread Talk voucher! So don’t be lazy and complete the activity – because you will be rewarded with a FREE bread talk bun if you do! *super cheap thrill*

As we made our way out, we spotted some cute sea horses and stopped to admire them for a bit.

And bid farewell to all the skeletons in their watery grave.

Getting to Bread Talk

After we exited the aquarium, we made a beeline for Bread Talk.  To get to Bread Talk, turn right after you exit the aquarium.  You should see the Forum.  Take the escalator down to the bottom floor of the Forum and walk straight – you will eventually see Bread Talk on your right.  Have fun munching on your spooky bread!

    Hi BB Mum

    It does looks amazing on how they spooked up the SEA Aquarium content with Halloween theme. I hope the kids are not scared by all the spookiness around :).

    • bumblebeemum says:

      Actually now that you mention it, there was even spooky sound effect that may make it too scary for young children. My boy was not the least bit spooked, he thought the whole thing was totally fun. But yeah, the younger ones may get spooked!

  2. This is SO NEAT! I am half contemplating taking the girls to Singapore next April, I found great air fares but I can find any reasonable accommodation…any ideas? It would just be myself and 2 kids (6 & 3 at the time)

      Singapore is one of the world’s most expensive cities.. Hotel rooms are expensive!

      You can also try Hotel 81. It is a chain of no-frills budget hotel in Singapore – though some branches have a somewhat sleazy reputation. Stick to the ones at the City Centre: Chinatown or Bugis. The last time my friend from overseas visited, he stayed at the Bugis branch – the room was small but clean and neat.

      Fragrance Hotel is another chain of budget hotels in Singapore. Again, stick to the ones in tourist district like Bugis, Riverside, or Lavender.

      For Hotel 81 and Fragrance, avoid the ones that have addresses in Geylang and Joo Chiat. I don’t think that area is good for families – especially with two girls.

      Let me know if you do come to Singapore. I would love to show you around on weekdays while my boys are in school. (Okay, maybe it’s me who is so bored at home and would love to play local tourist.) 🙂
