Visitors to the SeaLife Centre in Great Yarmouth could be in for a surprise this weekend as the attraction celebrates its 30th birthday.
Over Saturday and Sunday (July 18 and 19), 30 surprises will be sprung on guests at random as a thank you for supporting the attraction.
These will include everything from the adoption of a creature to a free return visit for a family.
Free ice creams, coffees and games including Top Trumps will also be distributed among visitors.
SeaLife in Great Yarmouth, which recently reopened following the national coronavirus lockdown, said it has “extensive measures in place in order to keep staff and guests alike safe”.
These include online only bookings, social distancing, PPE for staff, temperature checks on arrival and enhanced cleaning.
The site has welcomed over five million visitors since it was first opened in July 1990 by aptly-named weather presenter, Michael Fish.
