|The St. Louis Aquarium at Union Station is being invaded by Pirates.
“Pirate Quest for the Sunken Treasure,” a new family adventure, is now open through October 31, 2022.
On the exciting treasure hunt inside the Aquarium, guests will take a self-guided tour through a highly themed wonderland of pirate ship scenes and treasure caves and grottos. Social media fans will love the Instagram-worthy photo opportunities throughout the transformed Aquarium during their journey.
Visitors follow the quest’s clues as they make their way through all of the marine habitats and hands-on animal adventures at the Aquarium. Along the way, they will find the Pirate Captain’s journal containing treasure hunt hints as well as amazing animal facts and pirate jokes.
Treasure seekers will meet Captain Gideon Gar, the Pirate Captain of the Might Missy. Captain Gar will lead adventurers on their quest. Salty Serena, Captain Gar’s First Mate, will provide helpful hints and fun facts about the sea life along the journey. SharkBait Stubbs; a silly deck swab, comes along for a laugh with jokes and puns at each stop.
Guests will explore elaborate scenes, including the Captain’s Quarters, a Shipwreck Canyon and the Treasure Grotto. A spooky Secret Cave, Pirate Library and a Pirate Hideout add to the experience. Kids can fire the smoking, booming cannons on the sunken pirate ship.
At the end of the quest, only the bravest adventurers can sit at the Pirate Throne for a triumphant picture. Kids who complete the quest will get a reward at the end of their journey.
