Splash like an otter
Or a frog, or a fish.
Then have a splash yourself on our lilypad fountain! Climb on the playground, slide like a penguin and meet our tiny critters. Don't forget to feed the goats!Kids' Zone
Cool off in the Aquarium
with some cool creatures.
Stop by the Tidal Touch Zone in the Pacific Seas Aquarium and get an anemone hug around one finger. Feel the rough texture of sea stars, the spikiness of sea urchins, and the hardness of crab shells. You’ll feel like you’re at the beach! Open 9:30am-5:00pm.Tidal Touch Zone
