Sharks Invade Discovery Center; Mark Your Calendars for Sharks After Dark
When "A T. Rex Named Sue" opened at The Discovery Center, I knew that this would be the one time I had to make it to one of their adult nights. Now I've just got to go back for the next one!
The Discovery Center's newest traveling exhibit "Planet Shark: Predator or Prey" opens this Saturday, June 10th. The exhibit uses SENSORY4 technology the combines motion graphics, surround sound and almost forth HD projectors to take you in to the a shark's world. In addition to the 45-minute walk through "Planet Shark" also brings full-scale shark models cast from real animals, shark fossils, teeth and jaws that are up to 370 million years old and an up close look at shark cages.
You'll also have a chance to hear real life stories about humans interacting with sharks and get to play with some hands-on shark fun.
Like "A Brew With Sue," The Discovery Center expects a huge turn out for their shark themed adult night "Sharks After Dark." The 21+ event will combine a walk through the exhibit, beer from beer and wine from local breweries/vineyards and food trucks . The evening costs $20 and is scheduled for Friday, July 21st. If you want to pre-purchase your tickets to avoid being told that the event is sold out at the door you can buy them HERE.
The exhibit opens a little over a month before Discovery Channel's most popular week of the year, Shark Week. This year Shark Week kicks off on Sunday, July 23rd.
