What happened to the Sea World aquarium?

6 posts in this topic

I know it has been a few years since it closed, but whatever happened to the Aquarium at the front of the park? And if it closed due to unpopularity, why didn't they change it to something else. As a kid I always remember loving these tanks and seeing the variety of creatures and fish in there.

It shared the same filtration system with the Shark Encounter/Reef Discocery/Dugong Discovery next door.

 

Don't know for sure but I'd guess that changes that they needed to make to the system for Penguin Encounter were incompatible with the aquarium, and it's Sea World so why would you put in effort to keep something open when you can just as easily close it. On the upside though, there is a toilet nearby if you need to do some flushing 🙂

^It’s where Penguin Encounter is now 

No details on why it did close, I assume SW at the time wanted to do something now

It was next to the Penguin Encounter. The building is under the experience bookings area. The entrance door is still visible today
