Mermaids… to most, they're the subject of myth and legend, but at Aquarium Restaurant, we've got our own sea of mermaids!
Watch the mermaids swim amongst their sea life friends, all while teaching about the importance of taking care of our environment, during this 10-minute interactive show. Their family-friendly show is choreographed to music and is performed in our dining room aquarium tank.
