Adventure Aquarium Making Waves With Super-Sized Sand Sculptures

March 23, 2023

CAMDEN, N.J. (March 13, 2023) – Things are getting super-sized at Adventure Aquarium, and we're not talking about a fast food meal! The Aquarium is bringing the shore indoors from March 23 – April 16 with Super-sized Sand Sculptures presented by Visit New Jersey.

During the festival, guests will have the chance to see a collection of aquatically-inspired sand sculptures featuring some of the Aquarium's most beloved animals.

Better yet, guests can watch LIVE as sand sculptor Matt Long and his team of artists transforms 65 tons of sand into five larger-than-life works of art during the first week of the festival. Once the sculptures are complete, guests can ogle at the sandy masterpieces and pose for Insta-worthy photos.
