Calling all Pokémon Go Trainers! Some new and interesting creatures are popping up at the North Carolina Aquarium at Fort Fisher. Venonat hanging with a T-Rex! A Slowbro eyeing sharks! A rare Dratini spotted by the Butterfly Bungalow! The Aquarium is now home to 8 PokéStops, a Gym and dozens of Pokémon Go characters.

The after-hours, lure-dropping night of PokéFun offers Pokémon GO trainers an opportunity to catch, battle, hatch and hang at one of the area’s coolest attractions. Lures will be dropped and public Wi-fi is available throughout the evening.  

During the event, guests can also take a moment and learn about some real-life critters inside the Aquarium itself.

Pre-registration is encouraged. Spaces are limited, so register today to catch ‘em all at the Aquarium. This program is for all ages. Children must have a ticket and be accompanied by a paying adult.
