MERMAID SIGHTING AT DOWNTOWN AQUARIUM DENVER
DENVER, Colo. (Dancie Perugini Ware Public Relations) — Downtown Aquarium Denver introduces the beautiful Mystic Mermaids Wednesday, July 21 at 10 a.m.
The Mystic Mermaids will perform at Downtown Aquarium from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. every day through August 22. Their family-friendly, interactive show will be choreographed to under-the-sea themed music and will also feature a narrated, conservation-focused segment.
“We’re celebrating Downtown Aquarium’s 5th anniversary this year, and what better way to commemorate the occasion than to introduce a one-of-a-kind experience like Mystic Mermaids for our local families and visitors to enjoy,” said Scot Hulgan, Downtown Aquarium general manager.
In addition to enjoying the regular performances, guests can book opportunities to swim with the mermaids, schedule a mermaid birthday appearance, take photos with the mermaids, purchase autographed mermaid photos and register for mermaid swim camp. Mermaid-themed toys will also be available for purchase at the Gift Shop.
Mystic Mermaid auditions were challenging since the ladies not only had to demonstrate strong swimming skills, they also had to be comfortable in a tank with a 500 lb grouper, sting rays, eels and sea turtles.
“The schools of fish are easy to swim with because they move out of our path or swim below or above us, but the sea turtles are very curious and like to be by the girls or swim right into our path,” said Mermaid Kaya.“Our sea turtle Rafael loves to swim right into a mermaid while she’s resting on a rock!”
"Denver families and visitors will really enjoy the new Mystic Mermaids,” said Ken Yates, Animal Husbandry Manager, “They put on a magical and interactive live show for people of all ages and they are a natural fit for Downtown Aquarium.”
Admission is $15.99 for adults, $14.99 for seniors and $9.99 for children ages 3 to 11.
Downtown Aquarium is located at 700 Water Street. Please call (303) 561-4450 or visit www.aquariumrestaurants.com for more information.
