Start planning your Tentacles-themed costume now for the New England Aquarium’s annual member-exclusive Halloween party!

Come trick-or-treat your way through an evening of family-friendly, creepy-crawly, fantastically freaky fun, beginning with our Spooky Science Fair and wrapping up the night with our Kooky Costume Contest.

Dress to impress because prizes will be awarded in the following costume contest categories:

  • Best Child Costume
  • Best Adult Costume
  • Best Group Costume
  • Best Tentacles-Themed Costume

Members, you can start the party early by posting your Fish, Fun, and Fright preparation photos to #FishFunFright―you may even see yourself on the screens at the top of the Giant Ocean Tank during the event!

Ticketing opens on Thursday, September 29 at noon. If you are still seeing this page after that time, please completely exit and restart your web browser.

Bring Your Friends!

For this special event, we offer guest-rate tickets, doubling the number of guests eligible for admission on your membership. For example, a Patron-level member can buy four tickets at the member rate and four tickets at the guest rate.

  • Member Rate: Adults $21, Children (3-11) $14
  • Members’ Guest Rate: Adults $24, Children (3-11) $17
  • As always, children under 3 are admitted free and do not need a reservation.

So mark your calendar, be sure to get your tickets early, and join us for a scary-good time! We look forward to seeing you at the Aquarium!

Advance ticket purchase required. Your membership must be valid for the requested admissions on both the purchase date and the date of the event. Memberships are nontransferable and someone from the member household must be present for the group to be admitted.
