AAQ-00168_NYESplash_Banner-1024x512 (1)

We won’t make you wait until the stroke of midnight to celebrate the start of 2018 – especially when your kids have bedtimes waaaaaay before then.

Family, friends and fish will come together to welcome the New Year at a kid-friendly hour during our annual New Year’s Eve Splash event.  Not to mention we have some of the best views in town for the 6:00 p.m. fireworks display on the Delaware River Waterfront! 

What’s in store for this evening of fun?

Extended hours


Visit your favorite animals – and discover some new friends too – during twilight hours as we’ll be open from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.  And don’t forget to cross Shark Bridge too!


What’s a party without music, right? 

Our entertaining DJ dance party will have you movin’ and groovin’ to family-friendly songs.  The tunes start at 2:00 p.m.
