Sink your teeth into an amazing ‘out of water’ shark experience at Chester Zoo!

Join us for Planet Shark: Predator or Prey, an aquatic adventure appearing for the first time EVER in the UK. As soon as you step into our BRAND NEW immersive exhibition space, you’ll be transported under the sea into the domain of one of the world’s most misunderstood predators.

Planet Shark: Predator or Prey is FREE with zoo entry for all visitors! Leave the outside world behind as you dive into the mysterious underwater world of sharks – without even getting your feet wet!




When you enter the immersive world of Planet Shark: Predator or Prey at Chester Zoo, you’ll be surrounded by incredible underwater projections featuring stunning footage that tells the story of how important sharks are to our oceans, and the planet. 

Trace millions of years of evolution, as you come face-to-face with the great white shark, and gain a whole new level of respect for the ocean’s oldest and most effective predator.

As well as the huge immersive gallery, you can marvel at awe-inspiring life size shark models, an extraordinary collection of real teeth and jaws, and extremely old and rare fossils – some up to 370 million years old.

Promising fun and fascination for all ages, you’ll learn about the anatomy, biology, hunting strategies and sensory systems of these amazing creatures, as well as the global conservation efforts to protect them.
