Sensory-Friendly Evening

This special evening gives Aquarium guests with sensory-processing differences a fun, comfortable and accepting environment.

Throughout the Aquarium, lights will be lower, and music and other sounds will be turned down or off.

There will be showings of sensory-friendly versions of our 4D movies, choose from: BBC Earth's Shark: A 4D Experience® or  Ice Age: No Time for Nuts 4D. (Lights and sounds will be reduced and special effects turned off. Please keep in mind that 3D glasses must be worn in order to see the movie clearly.)

Our virtual reality ride will be open and free of charge!

The Sound Bites Cafe will be open if you would like to purchase a snack or beverage.
