This season, attendees can encounter characters from the beloved game while discovering the aquarium’s core objective: Championing the Conservation of the Marine World. On display will be marine life like sea otters, harbor seals, octopuses, a myriad of fish species, and beyond.
In terms of special Animal Crossing: New Horizons experiences, the Seattle Aquarium is setting up a zone for photo sessions against an aquarium-inspired backdrop featuring game characters. Moreover, Blathers will introduce creature insights derived directly from the game on Switch. Visitors can expect character cutouts positioned around various habitats, and there’s a digital bingo treasure hunt in the works.
