Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada Creates One of a Kind Experience for 10 Millionth Guest

Guest returns to Aquarium for an elevated overnight experience

It’s been almost a year since Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada welcomed its 10 millionth visitor after less than five years of operations. However, Canada’s largest indoor aquarium celebrated in style this past week with a private all-night event in honour of one special guest and her family.

On August 11th, New Jersey resident Amanda Kwai Pun returned to Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada after being named last year’s prize recipient and was greeted to an overnight experience she’ll not soon forget. With the popular attraction closed to the public, Kwai Pun and her family of 12 enjoyed a behind the scenes tour, crafts, delectable treats catered by Daniel et Daniel, and bedtime stories for the little ones. Then they donned shark themed matching pajamas and slippers and hunkered down in their aquatic-themed beds to sleep under the sharks in the Dangerous Lagoon tunnel.

The next morning, the family enjoyed breakfast among the colourful array of tropical animals at Rainbow Reef. They were also treated to a private dive show by Aquarium staff who educated them on some of the 20,000 animals housed at the facility.

“Our overnight VIP sleepover was truly a one of a kind experience,” said Kwai Pun. “The staff at Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada went over and above to see that our family was cared for and entertained. Material items will come and go, but memories from this experience will last a lifetime,” she said.
