Fun Festival: Week One!

Merlin’s Magic Wand

Merlin’s Magic Wand
4th September 2015

Week one of the Merlin’s Magic Wand Fun Festival has seen amazing visits and outreach activity in Konigswinter, Munich, Minnesota and Westchester.

SEA LIFE Munich celebrated the Fun festival by inviting children from an organisation called ‘Helfende Hände’ (Helping Hands), that supports kids with multiple severe mental and physical disabilities, to have a magical day out at their attraction. Two employees volunteered their time to give the children a tour through the attraction, complete with an actor dressed up like a pirate! One of the girls was crying toward the end of the day and when asked what was wrong she said: ”I’m just so sad that this wonderful day at SEA LIFE has to end!”  

Coming up this weekend, we have events at the Blackpool attractions, Heide Park, the Dallas attractions, Hunstanton SEA LIFE Sanctuary and the Tokyo attractions. This weekend also sees the launch of the MMW Epic Adventure! Tom and Joe Pointon from Alton Towers Resort are getting driven to an unknown location with only basic rations and an emergency £10 to get back to Alton within 5 days! You can wish them luck on their Facebook page here.

Thank you to everyone involved in organising these amazing events! Look out for updates at and
