It’s not just a place to see animals but actually swim with the stingrays, feed birds and reptiles, look sharks in the eye and even take a few selfies.

“Ever since e-commerce, it’s hard for malls to get traffic. We’re really trying help the malls come back and focus on entertainment to bring families and traffic back to the malls. It’s the best thing. When a kid comes in and actually interacts with the animal, the smile they light up with, that’s what makes it worth it,” said SeaQuest general manager Grant Carter.
