Mutiny Bay


Opening Date:
Mar 28, 2009

With Alton Towers owner Merlin Entertainments Group also owning the SEA LIFE chain, it was perhaps inevitable that a SEA LIFE attraction would one day make its way into the park. In 2009, Mutiny Bay welcomed the all-new Sharkbait Reef aquarium, which hosts a range of underwater creatures including sharks, rays and seahorses.

In addition to a number of pirate-themed exhibits, Sharkbait Reef includes a 10-metre walkthrough Ocean Tank Tunnel to enable guests to view the aquatic creatures up-close. It is also home to the UK's only interactive tropical pool, in which guests can dip their fingers to touch underwater inhabitants such as shrimps.

What a great idea, a pirate themed Sea life centre sits in the pirate section of Alton Towers giving some much needed alternatives to the big rides
