If it’s the fast and furious you crave then head for the free falling Hyperblaster, the Boomerang rollercoaster, the high flying HydroMax, the stomach churning Obliterator or even the top spinning Pendulus.  However, if you prefer your two feet firmly on the ground then why not take your seat at our amazing shows and be entertained by our resident sea lions or our cheeky parrots or even our very own African Acrobats. There’s oodles of family rides too such as the traditional carousel, the waltzers, the dodgems, the pirate ship and so much more.

SEA LIFE CENTRES TEAM UP WITH DISNEY•PIXAR’S FINDING DORY

Special Disney •Pixar Finding Dory events will be hosted from July 16 at the 12 Sea Life centres in the UK and Ireland.

Visitors will be led on an interactive trail by one of the new Disney•PIXAR movie’s star sea creatures Hank (voice of Ed O’Neill), a cantankerous octopus.

“Hank will appear in displays right through each centre, revealing amazing fishy facts and providing collectible ‘letters’ which will need unscrambling at the end of the journey to earn a reward,” said event organiser Jamie Turner.

“Like Finding Nemo before it, the new film is likely to inspire an interest in marine life among millions of children, which is why we’re delighted to be associated with it.”

Disney• Pixar’s Finding Dory tells the story of Dory’s quest to find her own family, with the help of Nemo and Marlin and new characters like Hank that she meets at a Californian marine rehabilitation centre and aquarium.

“We have many of the real sea creatures in our displays that the film’s characters are based on,” said Jamie.

Tang - the real 'Dory'

“With their help we think we can reinforce the messages which are at the heart of the film, about the importance of looking after our seas and of sharing experiences with family and friends.”

The Centres hosting the event are

Great Yarmouth   Hunstanton    London

Birmingham    Blackpool    Brighton

Loch Lomond   Manchester   Scarborough

Weymouth   Cornish Seal Sanctuary and Bray (Ireland).

The wonderful people at Great Yarmouth Sealife Centre have kindly given me a family ticket that can admit up to eight people to give away to one of my lovely readers, to enter just complete the Gleam widget below.

Good Luck
