from Aquarium at the Boardwalk
Step right up for aquatic fun you won’t find anywhere else! Inside the 46,000-square-foot Aquarium at the Boardwalk, one of Branson, Missouri’s newest attractions, you’ll be mesmerized by an undersea journey through the ocean depths. Experience up-close views of colorful fish, sharks, seahorses, octopi, and more. You’ll find plenty of entertaining activities, too, like choreographing the colors in the jellyfish infinity room as you watch these bioluminescent beings and climbing through a kelp forest play zone designed especially for kids.

A larger-than-life giant Octopus sculpture greets you at the front door. It’s modeled after Aquarius, a giant Pacific octopus, and one of the Aquarium’s exclusive characters. Inside, stroll down the boardwalk and explore ten zones of fish and fun.

Take a 5D submarine ride to the bottom of the ocean, guided by Aquarius the Octopus and Finn the Pufferfish. Surround yourself with the sea as you walk through a tunnel right in the heart of the Aquarium and into a sunken ancient city. You’ll be thrilled with sightings of a variety of sharks and all kinds of uniquely striped and patterned fish as they swim circles all around you.

Get a vast view of a gorgeous coral reef, teeming with tropical marine life, and catch a final glimpse of the sharks and rays that come gliding overhead. Discover a magical underwater palace where heroic mermaids safeguard the ocean’s coral reefs, and marvelous coral species that create a home for so many treasured animals. Take some time to watch as fish travel in and around the corals and peek through the nooks and crannies of their colorful forms.
