Seattle Aquarium Partners with Nintendo for Animal Crossing: New Horizons Experience

The Seattle Aquarium has recently announced an exciting partnership with Nintendo to bring the popular game, Animal Crossing: New Horizons, to life. Starting on October 7, 2023, visitors to the aquarium will have the opportunity to see characters from the game while also learning about the importance of marine conservation.

The partnership aims to inspire visitors to care for the marine environment by combining the virtual world of Animal Crossing with the real-life marine animals at the Seattle Aquarium. Guests will have the chance to see sea otters, harbor seals, octopuses, and hundreds of species of fish, among other marine creatures.

One of the highlights of the collaboration is an area where visitors can take photos with an aquarium-themed background and characters from Animal Crossing: New Horizons. Additionally, there will be themed descriptions of creatures presented by Blathers, a character from the game. Standees featuring Animal Crossing characters will be placed near various habitats, adding a touch of whimsy to the aquarium experience. Visitors can also look forward to a smart device bingo scavenger hunt.

The Seattle Aquarium is offering early admission for members only on October 7 and October 8, starting at 9 AM PT. For the general public, the aquarium is open daily between 9:30 AM and 6 PM. Tickets can be purchased online.

The partnership between the Seattle Aquarium and Nintendo will continue until December 31, 2023, with more themed activities planned for the future. Specific details on these upcoming activities will be announced at a later date.

This collaboration between the Seattle Aquarium and Nintendo provides a unique opportunity for both Animal Crossing fans and those interested in marine conservation to come together and enjoy an immersive experience. By connecting virtual and real-life environments, the partnership aims to inspire a love and appreciation for our marine environment.
