“It’s magical and cool.” – Jessica Biel, Gotham Magazine, April 11, 2018
SeaGlass is a magical, aquarium–themed carousel like no other. It is an immersive experience of movement, music, and light. Riders sit inside one of 30 monumental fish becoming both the performers and the audience. It is a spectacular convergence of art and entertainment.
A spiraling pavilion of curved glass and steel, inspired by the chambered nautilus, houses the magical ride. Located off State Street within the Woodland, SeaGlass recalls The Battery’s history as the original home of the New York Aquarium, opened in 1896.
With no center pole, riders move up and down and swirl around. Their interwoven movements simulate multiple swim patterns and give the rider the feeling of underwater weightlessness. Come to this extraordinary ride to the depths of the sea for excitement, wonder, and fintastic FUN.
All riders under 42 inches in height must ride on the lap of a supervising adult.
