4 Fun Date Ideas That Take Into Account Your Lifetime Ban From the Aquarium

There are a lot of fun and unexpected date ideas if you’re willing to think outside the box. And don’t worry – none of the ones we’re about to mention involve the aquarium, from which you’ve been banned for life. So don’t even think about it. We know it seems fun to you, a person whose love for aquatic animals and reckless abandon has led to illegal behavior on more than one occasion, but look – just drop it. Here are some original date ideas that won’t land you in jail this time.


Stargaze at the Planetarium

If you want to get your fix of natural beauty and science, why not try the planetarium? The stars are a beautiful way to connect with a new romantic interest, and you won’t be tempted to stick your hand in the tank or sneak in the back to “pet the beluga’s tongue.” At the planetarium you can just sit in your seat and enjoy the show, without implying to your date that you have a somewhat unhinged passion for a seal pup named Domino.



Take a Segway Tour

Seeing the sites on a Segway is a great way for you to get an adrenaline rush that doesn’t involve stroking the octopus tank while whispering sweet nothings that cause people to drag their children away from you. Feel the wind in your face instead of splashing into a sea lion tank where your life is very literally in danger.


Scout the Flea Market

Window shopping used goods is a very low-cost date, especially because your date won’t have to bail you out of jail after you’ve picked the lock to the aquarium medical center because you thought that sick turtle “needed a good cuddle.”


Visit the Casino

This is a thrilling activity that can feel almost illegal, but actually isn’t. So instead of molesting some sea creatures, just blow some cash. Your date might think you’re a little wild, but hopefully in a fun way instead of the “I might need to get a restraining order” way.


Dating should be fun! So get out of your comfort zone and try something new, especially since your tried and true activities have already gotten you banned from the aquarium and they will NOT look kindly on your return.
