Meet a Mermaid at SEA LIFE Michigan
Meet a Mermaid at SEA LIFE Michigan! Witness one of the most spectacular exhibits for the first time ever at the Sea Life Aquarium in Michigan… Meet a Mermaid! Metro Detroit Mommy received free admission to a media preview event so we could share this information with you.
From August 15th through September 1st guests of the aquarium will be able to watch mermaids swim with sea creatures like sharks, stingrays, along with a variety of tropical fish. Not only can you admire them through the glass, but you can also take pictures right next to them while they perform. Then meet a real mermaid during a photo opp. And to top it all off there is a special mermaid makeover experience.
Meet a Mermaid at Sea Life Michigan Hours
The special mermaid event is only offered Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 10:30 am – 12:30 pm and 2:30 pm – 4:30 pm. And on Sundays from 11:30 am – 1:30 pm and 3:00 pm – 4:30 pm. It’s kind of like an open house where you can show up anytime during the event time slots. Only one adult can accompany the child and the adult must purchase an admission ticket into the aquarium. You must pre-book online in advance. The Mermaid Experience is for children ages 3-12 only.
Sea Life has a special notice on their website that says “Please be advised during our Mermaids event we strongly discourage bringing strollers through the aquarium.” Just go prepared and aware that no strollers are allowed on these special days.
Our at Meet a Mermaid at Sea Life Michigan Experience
We met the mermaids before the experience was open to the public. I was thoroughly impressed. We were allowed to get up close and stand next to the tank for a couple of minutes uninterrupted by the crowds. It was truly amazing. My girls were star struck and in awe of the beautiful mermaid tail and fins. The mermaid interacted with them one on one, they could not believe their eyes.
The icing on the top was the Mermaid Meet and Greet where the girls got to sit next to one of the mermaids. As a matter of fact, they talked to her and touched her tail. Not to mention, the mermaids kept in perfect character the whole time. Finally, the girls took photos with the mermaid and even got a signed autograph page.
Another fun perk for the girls who want to become a mermaid before they meet the real one is the Mermaid Makeover Experience. This special ticket price of $77.85 will include 1 child’s admission ticket together with make-up applied by a professional make-up artist, a child mermaid tail, a commemorative photo with a mermaid, and a goody bag.
If you want to witness a magical mermaid experience…SEA LIFE Michigan Aquarium is the place to be!
