SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium to open in Palladio
SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium is the newest addition to open in the Palladio, come September
Construction has begun on the new family entertainment facility, which focuses on hands-on exhibits including reptiles, birds, mammals, sharks, stingrays and other interactive animals.
“We’re very excited to bring SeaQuest to Folsom,” said SeaQuest CEO Vince Covino. “As guests interact up close with the diverse array of exotic species we have planned, our goal is to create a fun and memorable experience. If we can do that, an appreciation of our planet and our environment will become a real priority in their lives.”
This newest SeaQuest location will feature more than 22,000 square feet of interactive adventures such as exotic sea life in Caribbean Cove, tropical birds in Amazon Rainforest, reptiles in Egyptian Desert, otters, sharks and eels waiting to be hand fed along The Great Wall of China and much more.
Designed as a “Quest of Edutainment,” visitors to SeaQuest will journey through realistically themed exhibits where they will connect with animals through various hands-on encounters such as feeding sharks, stingrays, capybara, Asian small-clawed otters, giant Sulcata tortoises, large exotic bird species and thousands of other creatures along the way.
“The Palladio in Folsom is the perfect fit for SeaQuest,” said Gloria Wright, general manager of Palladio. “We pride ourselves on bringing unique experiences to the region, and this very fun, interactive, family-friendly destination will be a huge hit with residents and tourists alike.”
The new facility will initially open exclusively to SeaQuest members who will enjoy private access and be the first to interact with thousands of species. To celebrate SeaQuest, guests can take advantage of up to 50 percent off annual membership “passports” by visiting Folsom.VisitSeaQuest.com through the end of the month.
SeaQuest Interactive Aquarium currently has facilities in Las Vegas, Fort Worth, Texas, and Layton, Utah. Another new facility is scheduled to open in Littleton, Colo., in June.
