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?
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.
Fireworks on the Delaware
Experience a beautiful New Year’s Eve fireworks display over the Delaware River with Philadelphia as the backdrop. The show begins at 6:00 p.m. with spots to watch from inside and outside of the Aquarium.
Festive New Year’s Eve giveaways
While supplies last, we’ll have super fun New Year’s party hats, noise makers and more!
Wishing you a safe and Happy New Year!
