New SEALIFE opening details confirmed for Manchester

Manchester is set to receive a new branded aquarium, opening early next year.

The SEALIFE Centre will be located in Barton Square at the city’s Trafford Centre shopping destination, as exclusively revealed first by Airgates earlier this year. The attraction will be the second operation at the site operated by Merlin Entertainments, with a LEGOLAND Discovery Centre having opened in 2010.

Set to open ‘Spring 2013’, this new addition will be the fifteenth SEALIFE branded attraction in the United Kingdom.

Details of any unique displays are currently scarce, however “an amazing 360° ocean tunnel, 30 display tanks and more than 5,000 sea creatures” are promised according to the cluster’s newly reorganised marketing team.
