The Insanity Tour Have you ever done anything really scary? Well, only the most adventurous and daring people (age 12+) should come on this tour! Would you stick your hand in a tank of giant cockroaches? Eat a mealworm? Wade into a tank full of hungry piranhas? Pick up a snake or a scorpion? Attack your deepest fears head-on by experiencing the scariest, slimiest and creepiest animals that live within the World Aquarium. Touch and interact with scorpions, stingrays, sharks, cockroaches, millipedes and many more freaky creatures. Be prepared to be brave.
The Insanity Tour also focuses on who eats what, who and what they eat, and how who eats what. Participants will see many animals eating, see various methods of how animals capture their food, and will be able to feed some of the animals which will vary depending upon the day and time of the program. Participants will receive a complimentary fossilized shark tooth necklace as a memento of your new courageous identity. Hours: Mon-Thurs 3:00pm; Fri-Sat 8:00pm; Sun 1:00pm
