SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – An exploration of sharks, rays, tropical fish and other marine life awaits guests as the Sea Life Aquarium officially reopens on June 20. The aquarium, located at Legoland California Resort and built for kids and families, said they were eagerly awaiting visitors.
During the temporary disruption of operations, the aquarium filled with 4,000 marine animals was active and thriving.
Sea Life workers have welcomed baby cuttlefish and are awaiting the birth of baby horn sharks. Guests can explore the 200,000 gallon oceanic reservoir by walking under spotted eagle rays, gray reef sharks, a Queensland grouper among other marine life and learn about the bioluminescent tides at sea at night.
“We are delighted to reopen Sea Life Aquarium and share the underwater world filled with thousands of marine animals with our guests,” said Managing Director Kurt Stocks. “With the kids out of school for the summer, the aquarium is a great place for a day trip for families who want a fun and educational experience.”
The aquarium is the first attraction to open at the resort, as Legoland is still awaiting state approval for the park’s proposed reopening date of July 1.
As the health and safety of guests and employees remain the top priority, guests will experience some differences at the aquarium, including reduced capacity, cashless payments, social distancing practices, and improved cleaning regimes. Sea Life requires customers to purchase tickets online in advance to reserve access to the aquarium for the desired visit dates and time. Face coverings will be required for all guests three years of age and older and staff members.
Customers are strongly encouraged to visit the resort’s website for more customer experience and visit details. For more information visit www.legoland.com/california.
