The Jellies Experience

The Jellies Experience” immerses visitors in a world of animals that have no heads, hearts, brains, bones or true eyes yet have survived for hundreds of millions of years and rank among the ocean's major predators.
Ocean Dance gallery, Radiant Nature gallery, Delicate Danger gallery and other twists and turns throughout the Aquarium facilities take you into a world of fiber-optic chandeliers to experience how jellies sting and eat their prey.
Jelly Fantastic lets you create electronic jellies before launching them into a virtual aquarium populated with other people's creations.

mirrored walls to create the feeling of swimming through a massive jelly
swarm while Light Show contains fluorescent, bioluminescent
and iridescent jellies and corals.
