Along with their favorite fish Splash, a yellowback fusilier, and Bubbles, a mandarin dragonet, children discover a whole new world in this new exhibit making its debut at The Magic House!
In the Kelp Forest, children will navigate an under-the-sea maze along the ocean floor. As they navigate from one side of the algae forest to the other, they will be encouraged to help keep the Kelp Forest clean and to collect green and red algae and sea stars along their journey.
Reeftown Rangers Clubhouse
Children will explore a sunken ship and learn about the differences between real and artificial reefs. Plus, they will complete a treasure hunt and explore a revolving globe to understand how all oceans are interconnected.
Flo’s School of Fish
Children will learn fun fish facts from Flo, the show’s resident ‘teacher’. Students in Flo’s School of Fish will explore a variety of sea creatures, from sharks to sea urchins and learn ways to identify mysterious ocean animals.
The Deep, Dark Theater
Visitors enter a space surrounded by glowing sea creatures as they learn about bioluminescence and the 90% of the animals that have this ability to glow in The Deep.
Children become Reeftown Rangers as they take a pledge to protect the ocean! The newly appointed rangers will then explore the Reeftown Obstacle Course and discover various sea creatures along the way.
