Marana, AZ - Breakers Water Park, the premier destination for water-soaked family entertainment in Southern Arizona, announces the opening of an all-new attraction. ExplorAquarium, is an interactive sea aquarium featuring stingrays and eels, the first of its kind in Arizona. ExplorAquarium is now open to all Breakers Water Park guests for an additional fee.
“Imagine being in the water among stingrays and eels,” said Breakers Water Park Manager Steve Miklosi. “Our guests will be able to get close and touch these beautiful creatures and understand them a little bit more. It’s a one-of-a-kind experience.”
Guests will begin the ExplorAquarium experience with a brief introduction, known as the meet and greet phase, sitting on the edge of the pool with their feet dangling in the water. Once the fish and guests are comfortable with each other, guests will slide into the 33” deep pool where the curious stingrays and eels will swim around guests, giving them an opportunity to touch the puppy like sea creatures.
The unique saltwater tank allows guests to enter and is climate controlled so the attraction will be available throughout the season, weather permitting. During the off season when the water park is closed, ExplorAquarium will be open for school groups, youth groups, team building, special parties and private encounters. The Water Park plans to add additional species of fish to the attraction for guests to interact with.
The stingrays and eels in the experience live on a diet of squid and shrimp and were selected because of their friendly behavior and natural curiosity. Marana High School Marine Biology students will be visiting ExplorAquarium and working with Breakers Water Park to develop special courses, videos and worksheets for schools to use alongside field trips to the attraction. Also, because of the type of attraction it is, ExplorAquarium will be available for use as therapy for various illnesses.
Guests can enjoy Breakers’ 11 water slides and attractions with general admission or a season pass, on sale now starting at $25.99. A season pass includes unlimited visits through September 4, 2017. ExplorAquarium is an additional cost to park admission.
