Each encounter is 30 to 40 minutes and costs $59.95, plus cost of aquarium admission.

Under the Sea Slime — March 12 through 19, budding chemical engineers can make and play with their own “Under the Sea Slime” creating one-of-a-kind colors and textures with STEM Camp, Engineering for Kids.

Penguin Paintings — Each weekend during Kids’ Fest, children will marvel as OdySea’s African Black-footed Penguins get artistic, creating masterpieces before guests’ very eyes!

Character Meet and Greets — Daily from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., kids can visit with their favorite character icons from movies like Frozen, Moana, Zootopia, Big Hero Six and Minions.

Behind the Scenes Sneak Peeks — Daily, guests will enjoy a video journey to rarely seen aquarium happening like sea lion demonstrations, shark feeds, diet preparation, and animals visiting the veterinarian.

Cost:   FREE with Aquarium admission (excluding the Sloth Encounter).
