Shark Central

Thrillseeker Alert!!

You can touch a real shark at the only experience of its kind in the region.

This exhibit is home to 4 different members of the shark family you can actually touch after you learn the official “two-finger” technique that brings you in contact with one of nature’s most misunderstood predators.

It’s an exciting experience your kids will never forget.
