Included with Seattle Aquarium admission

In partnership with Nintendo of America, some of your favorite characters from the Animal Crossing™: New Horizons game on the Nintendo Switch™ system are embarking on a new adventure at the Seattle Aquarium this fall. It’s the first aquarium experience like this in North America!

Here’s what you’ll find at the Aquarium:

  • Standees of familiar characters from the game throughout the Aquarium.
  • A bingo scavenger hunt to play via your smart device.
  • An Animal Crossing: New Horizons photo opportunity, featuring an aquarium-themed background with characters from the game.
  • Themed creature descriptions presented by Blathers with information directly from the game.

All that, on top of the fun of visiting the Seattle Aquarium, exploring the habitats and getting face to face with a fascinating array of marine animals—get your tickets today!

And the fun doesn’t end there: Join us to participate in a stamp rally while exploring the Aquarium!

Stamp rally dates:

  • February 23*, 24, and 25
  • March 29*, 30, and 31
*Please note: On February 23 and March 29 the stamp rally will begin at 3:30pm—if you’re looking to avoid the weekend crowds, we encourage you to stop by during these Friday afternoon times.

The Aquarium’s partnership with Nintendo of America runs through March 2024. For the latest updates and news, follow us on social media or subscribe to our email list.
