Visitors to San Antonio will soon have the chance to get acquainted with some of the ocean’s most magical creatures without ever leaving dry land.
On May 25, Sea Life San Antonio, a new aquarium located in downtown San Antonio at the Shops at Rivercenter next to the Legoland Discovery Center, will officially open its doors to the public.
Sea Life San Antonio is a product of Merlin Entertainments, the second largest visitor attraction operator in the world. The aquarium will feature 10 interactive zones, and the region’s only underwater ocean tunnel, which will lead visitors through a a 160,000-gallon tank populated by sharks, sting rays, and other mystifying marine life.
“We are excited to welcome families and visitors across San Antonio and Texas to explore our new aquarium on May 25,” said Jeremy Aguillen, general manager of Sea Life San Antonio and Legoland Discovery Center San Antonio (via Culture Map Austin). “We are committed to providing safe, fun, and educational entertainment for the entire family, and we look forward to opening our unique underwater experience to our guests.”
Tickets to Sea Life San Antonio are available through the attraction’s official website. Annual passes are also available, which will grant pass holders unlimited access to the aquarium and the sharks, rays, seahorses, and jellyfish that call it home.
Sea Life San Antonio will follow the latest health and safety recommendations. Masks will be required for all visitors over 10 years of age. The attraction will also operate at reduced capacity for the time being, while staff will undertake advanced sanitation practices to keep guests safe.
“The health and safety of our guests and employees is our top priority,” Aguillen said. “We are taking proactive steps to provide visitors with a safe, comfortable environment when we welcome them onsite.”
