Step onto our fully enclosed Deep Ocean Escalator and you’ll be transported through the Sharks of the Deep. The first of its kind, this fully enclosed escalator draws you deeper and deeper into an underwater world where you’re completely surrounded by thousands of mysterious ocean creatures. On your ride, don't miss the giant rays flying overhead, gliding like kites in the wind, or the whitetip reef sharks emerging from the shadows. See if you can spot our rescued sea turtles, all 8 shark species, and 3 different large schooling fish!


Can’t take the escalator? Don’t worry, we have an elevator, too!
