Dive in and leave everyone else in the dust.

Drill simulator. Reel in the fattest fish. Or at least give it a try. At the drill simulator you can try pulling fish from the water by repeatedly releasing and pulling in the fishing line to tire them out. What’ll it be then? Shark, tuna or mackerel? Your choice.

You can of course take your creations home with you.

Tattoos. Mermaid or merman, that’s the question. The temporary tattoos can be easily applied to the upper arm or forearm and are skin-friendly. And the effect you get is really cool.

Reel in a gift, while supplies last. The show-stopper of the night. Catch a coral fish or shark fish hat. But remember, only while supplies last.
