We’re 2 weeks into 2018 – time flies! A new year brings new beginnings with a full calendar and so much time to fulfill all of the resolutions and goals you set for yourself. We know making resolutions to be a better YOU this year can be a bit overwhelming.
Where do you start? Well, we’re here to help!
A super popular resolution for many is the goal to be healthier in the new year. That could mean getting fit, losing weight, eating healthier or working toward a fitness goal – like running your first marathon. We’re here to help you stay on track with AAQ Yoga Days!
Our first Yoga Day of 2018 is scheduled for this Sunday, January 28, 2018 at 10AM. Keep up with your fitness goals in a truly unique setting as you go through each pose in front of our Shark Realm exhibit during an hour and fifteen minute long yoga class taught by one of our very own animal biologists. The class is open to all skill levels and participants must be at least 18 years old.
Spend More Quality Time with Family.
We live in a fast-paced world filled to the brim with busy schedules, tons of activities and, of course, social media. When we’re rushing to get it all done we tend to put things off, like spending quality time with the people who mean the most to us: our family.
Discover Membership with us and you’ll have an entire year of family time at your fingertips. Imagine all the fun you and your family will have learning something new about your favorite animal, crossing Shark Bridge, checking out new exhibits and seeing a free 3D movie – and that’s just during one visit!
Now, for a limited time, we’re offering the best price of the year for Membership – making it even easier to fulfill this New Year’s goal.
Travelling to far off, exotic locations = 2018 goals. But what if you could journey from continent to continent, no passport required?
Virtually travel all over the world when you visit the animals at Adventure Aquarium! See species like little blue penguins from Australia, Nile hippos from Africa and red-bellied piranha from the Amazon River. Head to the Pacific Northwest to discover the treasures found in the native cool waters there, like gorgeous sea stars and anemones (that you can touch!) in our Creature Feature touch pool in KidZone. You can do it all in just one day – without any layovers or lost luggage!
Make a Difference.
When you help support a great cause, it definitely brightens your spirits. It’s also a goal that impacts more than just the person who sets it.
If you made a resolution to support charitable efforts in 2018, you can attend our conservation awareness weekends to fulfill it. You and your family can learn more about the animals here at AAQ as well as their wild, endangered counterparts, including Nile hippos, sharks, African penguins and sea turtles. During these special weekends held throughout the year, you can also purchase unique items, like hippo kiss paintings, limited edition t-shirts and mugs. These are not only excellent souvenirs but 100% of the proceeds from sales are donated to help animals in the wild.
Our first conservation weekend event will be Hippo Awareness Weekend, held during Presidents’ Day holiday weekend (February 17-19). Genny and Button will host the party all weekend-long as guests see them during feeds and special enrichment sessions. (Enrichment is an activity that the animals enjoy doing which helps stimulate their minds and bodies – kind of like an interactive puzzle!).
Donations made during the weekend will benefit the Turgwe Hippo Trust in Zimbabwe, Africa. Since the weekend began, Adventure Aquarium guests have helped raise thousands of dollars to help the Turgwe hippos thrive in the wild.
Be sure to stop by for the fun that weekend and feel good about helping support a great cause.
Whatever your 2018 goals or resolution, remember to stick with it!
