The acrylic tunnel in the aquarium has been designed in a unique square shape so that you can view the sharks without any distortion, making the experience of sleeping underneath the sharks even more thrilling and as if you were actually in the water amongst the fearsome creatures.
After an educational but totally fun tour of the Big Blue it is time for dinner at the Cafeteria-buffet Mediterra, where all the children will enjoy getting to know each other before joining in a variety of fun games and activities.
