DenBlaaPlanet – Amazing Aquarium

“I guess that’s what every attraction should be…. educational, interesting and captivating…. and not to mentioned the wonderful cafe or amazing children’s playground with its numerous water experiments…” … a real highlight of tour adventure so far!

Both girls could barely contain their enthusiasm at visiting Northern Europe’s largest aquarium…jam packed full of 48 individual aquariums set in the shape of a contemporary whirlpool… easily accessibly via train (Karstup) or by bike… we chose the former after yesterday’s efforts!
It is intended to showcase numerous elements including rainforests, steep bird cliffs (complete with puffins), beautiful coral reefs and oceans filled with manta rays and hammerhead sharks..

A brilliant place that allowed the girls to explore the ‘touch/see pools’, enjoy the immersive film theatres and view the well stocked aquariums… for well over 7hrs!!! So it must have been good!!

But particular highlight was the the brilliant ‘storytellers’ who were amazing with both girls… no question left unanswered and some really interesting workshops across the day – feeding the sea otters, dissecting a squid or feeding the hammerhead sharks or pirahanas.

Once in a  Lifetime chance

So when Daniel (storyteller) offered us the chance to see ‘behind the scenes’… we couldn’t resist…. so we headed into the back of the main 4.1million litre ‘Ocean Aquarium‘. Treading very, very carefully we stood on the gangway over the top of the aquarium filled with sting rays, sharks and many more wonderful fish! A truly breath taking experience that was an undoubted highlight of the whole year around Europe!!

 

Positive

Messages

Both girls have come away with a huge amount of positive messages that we are genuinely thankful for…. plus some wonderful information (i.e. otters have 165,000 hairs per sq cm (most of any animal in the world)

 

So pleased we made the effort and visited here today…. a real highlight of the year so far!

Knowledgable Storytellers enhance the experience

Educate not Eradicate

But perhaps matching that experience (well almost!) was the immersive film experience linked to the recently opened ‘Planet Shark – Predator or Prey’… lying back on the bean bags, we watched with utter amazement at the wonderful 360° cinematic experience… Hugely educational and thought provoking…
Clearly conservation is a crucial part of the ‘educate not eradicate’ message and it prompted lots of questions with both girls… a brilliant homeschooling opportunity as we covered both marine biology and also conservation… Truly unbelievable that more deaths are caused by saunas each year rather than sharks!!

Nor the years condemn
