Press Release – February 21, 2020

First and foremost, 7 Seas Aquarium is humbly grateful for the overwhelming positive response and support from the community, especially all of our season pass holders. We are committed to bringing this unique and exciting attraction to Temple!

Due to some last minute minor adjustments and revisions required by the city’s planning department, our opening is temporarily delayed – we do not anticipate this delay taking us beyond the end of the month, however, stay tuned on our website and social media channels for updated information as we have it to share.

The last few days, we’ve been in direct contact with the City Manager’s office and we are addressing the necessary adjustments to get on track and get the aquarium’s doors open as quickly as possible. Our number one priority is and has always been the enjoyment and safety of all our guests as well as the well being of all our species on display.

We both realize and understand that everyone is excited and anxious for the aquarium to finally open. At the same time, we also need for all the species in our collection to arrive safely and be properly acclimated in order for them to thrive in their new home.  

Unlike a conventional entertainment venue or restaurant, 7 Seas Aquarium is a unique and highly specialized venue that doesn’t fall under the typical permitting guidelines and as a result, it has taken time and conversation for everyone involved to develop the necessary understanding of the facility and its needs.

Pre-opening season passes remain on sale. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
