New splash pad coming to The Florida Aquarium

- Charley took a trip to The Florida Aquarium on Tuesday to get a preview of their new splash pad area and cafe that open this weekend. 

The new rainforest-themed splash pad includes both wet and dry play areas with new fun activities like water dump buckets, spray zones and a designated water play area for toddlers. 

Along with the new play zones, Sandy's Snack Shack will offer shaded pergolas and decks overlooking beautiful Tampa Bay for parents and kids to relax and grab a bite to eat. 

The new additions open Friday, June 16.
