Sea Life Birmingham - Changes and Mister Maker Event

Friday, 20 May 2016
Last weekend, we set off early to go to the National Sea Life Centre in Birmingham. Earlier in the year we were lucky enough to be chosen as Sea Life Ambassadors for 2016, a role in which we are all really looking forward too.

Since we last visited back in February a lot has changed, so even if you've been before it's always worth another visit with many new animals and lots of changes.

Last weekend saw the start of the most recent event with Mister Maker. Up until 12th June Mister Maker Creature Makes workshops will be taking place throughout the day. As you walk around the centre you collect different craft pieces in which you can take home and make. However at the end of the tour there is a craft zone where videos filmed exclusively for Sea Life are shown and you can make different sea creatures including a fish, shark and stingray to name a few.

My favourite part of the Sea Life Centre is the 360 ocean tunnel which has just undergone a revamp and also reopened on the weekend. Firstly the entrance to the tunnel has changed, as you come out of the lifts the turtle area has been revamped. The tunnel though has had major improvements with new glass which is unscratched and the hand rails removed allowing more space for you to see all the animals above, around and below you.

Other new things spotted was a 'Behind The Scenes Tour' which sounds amazing. There have been some tank changes and some new additions including new jellyfish and some grown babies.

As always, Jack really enjoyed his visit to the Sea Life Centre and seeing all the sea creatures and telling us some facts about them. During this visit Isla was also a lot more interested in everything around  so it made it an even better day out.
