Adventure Aquarium’s Doors Will Remain Closed until May Due to COVID-19

From Adventure Aquarium:

Due to the quickly evolving global crisis caused by COVID-19, and for the health and wellbeing of our employees and guests, Adventure Aquarium is temporarily closed. We are hoping to open in May, however, we will follow the direction of public health officials and reopen when allowed.

For our loyal Members, we will be extending your membership by the number of days we are closed and adding additional benefits which will be announced as we get closer to a firm opening date. You are very important to our Aquarium and our employees, so rest assured we will take care of you and your family. We really can’t wait to see you!

We will continue to monitor this developing situation, consult with medical experts and follow official recommendations from public health officials and will communicate additional updates as they occur on our website,, and on our FacebookInstagram, and Twitter pages.

We thank our extended Adventure Aquarium family for their understanding and compassion for one another as we work together to navigate this crisis.
