Experience the new Stingray Hideaway where you’ll interact with stingrays like never before.
Are all sea creatures slimy? Find out at Tide Pool Touch where you’ll have a touchable view of the many species of underwater creatures at the Touch Pool. Kids will love finding the secret frog tanks visible only when they climb through tunnels and tubes in the kids-only Frog Bog jungle gym. Are you brave enough to cross the Shark Bridge?
