Legoland California Resort is reopening its Sea Life Aquarium on Friday, under California's new guidelines allowing indoor aquariums to operate in designated counties.
San Diego County, which is home to Legoland as well as SeaWorld San Diego, is now a Tier 2 - or Red - designated county, which allows indoor aquariums to operate at 25 percent capacity. Located next to the entrance of the Legoland California theme park, Sea Life hold 4,000 sea animals in its two-story aquarium, which includes a 200,000-gallon ocean tank featuring Spotted Eagle Rays and Grey Reef Sharks.
Tickets to the reopened aquarium will be $10 per person — or just $7 if you are staying at the Legoland Hotel next door — but they must be bought online in advance to reserve your date, as capacity will be limited.
All guests ages three and older will be required to wear face masks, and safe physical distancing will be required inside.
California's new guidelines for reopening businesses took effect this week, but the state still has not issued any industry guidance for theme parks, which remain closed across the state. However, a few parks have began partial operation under regulations that allow for shopping, outdoor dining, and zoos and aquariums to operate. For example, Legoland California has been opening its Miniland walk-through section to Legoland Hotel guests as well as guests who make a minimum purchase in the park's main shop.Tweet
