The Rivercenter Mall is getting a big-time upgrade!  A new underwater ocean tunnel will open just in time for the summer. Sea Life Aquarium San Antonio will open their doors on May 25th. This will be the only place in San Antonio that will take you to underwater worlds.  Escape into a breathtaking underwater tunnel, come face to fin with sharks and stingrays, touch a sticky anemone, and explore over 10 breathtaking exhibits. No flippers required. This all takes place in 160,000 gallons of water!

As reported by KSAT-12 in San Antonio, Nick Ireland, the curator for SEA LIFE San Antonio, said in a news release. “We look forward to welcoming over 3,000 creatures to the aquarium in the coming weeks, from an 8-foot zebra shark to our beautiful seahorses,” Guests will have the opportunity to come face to fin with these incredible sea creatures and immerse themselves in an underwater adventure where rays and sharks swim overhead in over 160,000 gallons of water. The attraction will also feature educational talks and feeding demonstrations throughout the day.

Employees and guests 10 years and older will be required to wear face masks. The aquarium will also have limited capacity despite Gov. Greg Abbott’s lift of business restrictions.

This is just the latest in the resurgence of Rivercenter Mall in Downtown San Antonio.

LEGOLAND Discovery Center San Antonio is also located at the Shops at Rivercenter alongside the many new shops at 'Shops at Rivercenter' which is located in the old Dillards locations.
