Explore the full attraction

Once inside the attraction, guests will be issued a set time to take a break from exploring the centre and head to the Ocean display window for the mermaid experience. This will help to ensure your experience is appropriately socially distanced, and with a great view!

So don't worry about rushing around the first half of the attraction; take your time and say hi to all the fishes first. Then arrive at the ocean tank for your party’s allocated mermaid viewing time. This will ensure everyone gets to see the mermaids without queuing.
