Thrill-Seekers Can Now Swim With Piranhas at The Green Planet

A unique Snorkeling with Piranhas experience at the magical tropical biodome including Full day admission.

All guests will be provided a wet suit and briefed by an expert biologist before getting into the expansive Piranha River Tank for a special feeding session.

Get a close experience with 1000s of red bellied Piranhas as they embark on the ultimate feeding frenzy – devouring full chickens and turkeys with their razor sharp teeth in a matter of minutes as they are lowered into the water.

Don't worry, Piranhas are scavengers and the safety of our encounter participants is intact!

The experience comes complete with full day access to The Green Planet, meaning guests can unwind from their adrenaline rush alongside the bio-dome’s resident sloths, explore Creatures of the Night, or simply enjoy the wonders of the 3,000 exotic plants and animals that call spectacular bio-dome home.
