Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) December 05, 2013
The Fairmont Royal York is pleased to announce it is the Official Hotel Partner of the Ripley’s Aquarium, Toronto’s newest attraction in over 25 years. The luxury hotel will be offering exclusive Toronto vacation packages and offerings in conjunction with the largest indoor aquarium in Canada, with interactive displays, 16,000 specimens and Marine and freshwater habitats from around the world.
Now open, the brand new $130 million world-class attraction spearheaded by the Jim Pattison Group and Ripley Entertainment has more than 5.7 million litres of water and consists of 50 exhibits in nine carefully curated galleries. The exhibition showcases a cross section of saltwater and freshwater environments from around the world—starting with species from Toronto’s backyard, the Great Lakes Basin. Visitors to Ripley’s Aquarium will have a chance to meet over 16,000 underwater animals of 450 diverse species thriving in their natural habitats including swaying kelp forests, busy tropical reefs, and mesmerizing jellyfish waters. The Aquarium will showcase one-of-a-kind features like the moving sidewalk in the Dangerous Lagoon, the largest of its kind in North America, and the world’s largest kreisel jellyfish tank. There will also be over 100 interactive opportunities including three touch pools featuring horseshoe crabs, sharks, and rays.
The Aquarium’s awe-inspiring and entertaining experience incorporates a message of education, sustainability, and conservation so that visitors leave with a better understanding of what they can do to protect wildlife in their habitats. This dedication to environmental sustainability fits with Fairmont’s formal commitment to environmental stewardship that is almost two decades old. Building on the industry-leading Green Partnership Program, Fairmont has recently launched the Fairmont Sustainability Partnership, to support its communities and achieve positive, long term change. Engaging with their community, Ripley’s Aquarium and The Fairmont Royal York will assist with making this partnership both educational and impactful on the environment. The Fairmont Royal York is pleased to partner with Ripley’s Aquarium as the newest addition to Toronto’s attractions and destinations.
