Advantages: Spaced out lots of room
Disadvantages: cafe a little pricey
Last weekend I visited the Sealife Centre in Blackpool. My Husband suggested we have a family day out and I had a buy one get one free voucher from Tesco and my little girl loves fish so this seem the perfect place.
We got there about dinner time unfortunately they don't have a car park so you have to use the Blackpool ones which cost us £4.50 for 4 hours. But with our voucher it only cost £13 to get in as my little girl is 2 so she was free. To see the look on her face was priceless. When you first walk in you have the chance to get your photo with a Shark (plastic one). Then you walk into the rock pool area where they let my daughter touch star fish and different types of crabs. The staff where great always willing to give you answers on the fish.
On the walk round there is plenty to see and there are different sections for the different types of fish. I saw my fish glow in the dark fish was excited myself.
Once you get through the seahorses we found Nemo and Dory my little one spent about 20 minutes just watching them swimming as she has never seen them close up before. After we finally manage to get her away we reached a bridge that was the home of the piranha's very ugly looking fish.
After that you walk into a large room where you can take a seat and watch the sharks swim. They do feed them but we never stayed to see. Once your ready to move on you get to go through the tunnel where you get up close and personal with the Sharks.
All the way round there where colouring stations to keep the kids entertain. When you finish and go into the shop there is also a small children's play area which is free to use.
My daughter had fun in the ball pool. We stayed to have a dink in the cafe which was a little on the pricey side.
You get to see the photos and like all places in Blackpool charge you about £6 for the picture but when you have had a great day out you buy it.
I will be going back as I thought it was one of the best places I have been its not huge but it's just enough to keep the kids entertain for a few hours.
Summary: Brill day out
