Meet the Cast of TANKED!

As you might have heard, the Greensboro Science Center is getting TANKED! The popular Animal Planet series, TANKED, is building and installing a Giant Pacific Octopus tank for our aquarium. While they’re here, the stars of the show, Wayde King and Brett Raymer will be available for a meet and greet with Greensboro Science Center visitors. Space is limited, so read on to learn how you can have a chance to meet them.


DATE: Saturday, September 26, 2015
TIME: 10:00am – 1:00pm
LOCATION: Giant Pacific Octopus exhibit in the Greensboro Science Center’s aquarium

If you are a Greensboro Science Center Member:
From Thursday, September 17 through Saturday, September 19, GSC Members will have the opportunity to receive TANKED Meet & Greet wristbands before they are available to the public. Simply stop by the admissions window on the left (look for the sign that says “TANKED Meet & Greet – Get your wristbands here”) to receive your free wristbands. Members can receive one wristband per person listed on their membership. Children ages 2 and under do not need a wristband to participate.

There are a limited number of wristbands available for Members, so we encourage you to get yours as early as possible!

If you are NOT a Greensboro Science Center Member:
Non-Members can visit the Greensboro Science Center’s left admissions window (look for the sign that says “TANKED Meet & Greet – Get your wristbands here”) starting Sunday, September 20 to purchase wristbands for the TANKED Meet & Greet. This event is free with general admission, but you MUST have a special wristband to participate. General admission is $12.50 for adults ages 14 – 64, $11.50 for children ages 3 – 13, and $11.50 for seniors ages 65+. Children 2 and under are free.

Quantities are limited, so we encourage you to get your wristbands in advance!

Important Reminders:

  • Wristbands for the TANKED Meet & Greet may only be purchased on site. No phone calls.
  • The Greensboro Science Center is closed Friday, September 25 for our annual See To Believe Gala. Therefore, no wristbands will be available that day.
  • Depending on availability, wristbands MAY be available on Saturday, September 26. We encourage you to purchase in advance just to be safe. Follow us on Twitter – we’ll try to keep you updated during the week regarding how many wristbands are still available.
  • There will likely be a line for the TANKED Meet & Greet, so be prepared!
  • Merchandise will be available for purchase – cash only.
  • The aquarium will be open during this time, so visitors will still be able to enjoy the GSC in its entirety – including the new Giant Pacific Octopus exhibit!
  • Share your experience using #GSCTanked!

    • Just come to the Greensboro Science Center and visit the admissions window on the left (look for the sign that says “TANKED Meet & Greet – Get your wristbands here”). Supplies are limited, so the sooner you get here the greater your chance of receiving one!

      • Are there anymore wristbands available? We (my family) are members of the Science Center & are just now hearing about this. Will you please let me know if anymore are available? Could we get 3 tickets held for us to pick up at 10am? Thanks

      • There are 49 wristbands remaining. Unfortunately, we are not able to hold tickets for this event. You may want to be sure that the email address associated with your membership is up to date. GSC Members received an email notification about this event and there were a limited number of wristbands reserved especially for Members before they were available to the general public. You can contact our Membership Department to update your email address so you don’t miss events like this in the future!

  1. I just got through watching the episode of TANKED where the tank for the octopus was installed. How is the octopus doing? Has it settled in?

    • He’s doing great!!! He’s really quite beautiful and seems to be enjoying his awesome tank. As a nocturnal animal, he is definitely more active first thing in the morning, so if you’re planning a visit, that might be the best time to see him moving around.
