Geo Party! Monterey Bay Aquarium Category

Posted by Zoe on 12th October 2013 in Geo Party, Main Page

Our most recent category: The Monterey Bay Aquarium! This place has a lot of potential for clues, and narrowing down all the possibilities to 5 was a challenge.

Speaking of challenges, I wasn’t the most eager to touch the creature in clue 4, until my crew suggested it could be a clue. Trivia clues are a pretty good excuse to try new things, don’t you think? Yet another challenge was that some of the exhibits made filming more difficult due to lighting, noisy crowds, and reflective glass, among other reasons. I was hoping to have a clue on seahorses, but do you have any idea how hard it is to get them on camera non-blurrily? Even still, there were a few times when we managed to get some great videos, like my favorite, the giant octopus in clue 5.

What I didn’t know was that I’d be so fascinated that I’d have to rush at the end of my visit to see everything before closing time. If you find yourself nearby, it’s worth taking some time to walk through.
