Any non-Platinum Members (i.e., Silver & Gold Members, Bring-A-Friend ticket holders, GA ticket holders, Pre-K Pass Holders) visiting with a party of Platinum Members must also have a reservation to enter the Aquarium.
If you are not a Platinum Member and you show up without a reservation, you may need to wait for the next available entry time OR be denied entry if sold out.
Guests can make their reservations at https://www.adventureaquarium.com/reservations.
All Adventure Aquarium Members (including Platinum) using Bring-A-Friend tickets during Mermaids are required to make a reservation for their guests.
Members who purchased their Bring-A-Friend tickets before reservations for their guests at https://www.adventureaquarium.com/reservations or via the Member Portal, depending on when you purchase your Membership/tickets.
If you have issues accessing your Bring-A-Friend tickets, please call 1-844-474-FISH (3474).
Depending on the current capacity of the Underwater Mermaid Experience, it may take up to 45 minutes to reach the window for the up-close photo op.
Guests looking for a quicker experience and would like just to SEE the Underwater Mermaid Experience and skip the photo op can use our Early Exit Lane for a quick look before continuing with the rest of their visit.
Guests can also find shorter wait times at our Mermaid Meet & Greet and Mermaid Beach Club experiences located in Zone B. These experiences do not operate on timed entry.
Due to high demand and to ensure that ALL guests can experience the magic of mermaids, including those visiting at the end of the day, we are unable to change your entry time for the Underwater Mermaid Experience.
Due to high demand and to reduce overall wait times, guests who miss their designated entry time may have to wait for the next available time slot or may be denied entry if the experience is at capacity.
While underwater, the mermaids have very little visibility, making it hard for them to see our dry-side guests. Because of this, we ask guests to be aware that the mermaids might not come directly to you while at the window taking photos.
All Members are entered to win prizes every month that they visit Adventure Aquarium. When Members visit during the month of May they will be entered to win a Mermaid Meet & Greet for a party of four!Become A Member
