Behind The Scenes at National Sea Life Birmingham

On the 5th of July, Sea Life Birmingham celebrated their 20th Anniversary. They held some special events to celebrate and whilst we were invited along we couldn't attend on the day due to other commitments. However I've heard it was a great experience.

To coincide with their birthday celebrations a few new attractions opened at the Sea Life Centre which we have been to see recently and what I'm talking about today.

The Clownfish Kingdom has been revamped and reopened with some new faces and interactive tanks. You are able to get up close, and walk through the clownfish tunnel. Jack also spotted Dory and Nemo which made his day. 
There is also the newly revamped 360 degree Ocean Tunnel, as well as being able to see around you, they have revamped the walkway meaning you can now get closer to the windows and underneath your feet.

Recently 'Behind The Scenes Tour' was opened, which is exactly as it says, a little insight being the scenes of the daily running of the Sea Life Centre. Upon entry to the centre, when purchasing your ticket, you will be able to book an additional add on of the tour which costs £3.50 extra per person. I feel this is a great addition to the Sea Life Centre, and one which will do well. If your a fan of the Sea Life, or even a first time visitor, I would highly recommend it. It lasted around 20 minutes and was very informative throughout.

Our guide for the talk was very informative and really got involved with everyone who was taking part. We managed to see lots of different features including the routine the staff do, the food in which they feed the different sea creatures. Jack took the temperature of the tank within the room which he enjoyed too. We got to see some baby sharks within their mermaid purses and learnt a lot more about them. The tour was really enjoyable for all of us and we all learnt something new from it.

At the moment there is also a competition running with the hashtag #IGrewUpWithSeaLife in which they ask you to share photos on the website of your trip to the Sea Life Centre and you could be in with a chance to win a family pass or annual pass.
