18 Aug SeaGlass Carousel Opening at The Battery
Opening on August 20, after almost 10 years in the works, this new addition to The Battery Conservancy aims to entertain, inspire and educate adults and children alike.
The story of SeaGlass began when The Battery Conservancy was designing the park’s interior to reflect its rich history and to create a light source in a previously darkened landscape. An aquatic carousel was proposed to recall 1896 when The Battery was the first home of the New York Aquarium. SeaGlass is an innovative, aquatic–themed ride for Downtown residents, workers and visitors from around the world.
SeaGlass was born through the genius of wxy architecture. Inspired by the chambered nautilus, the spiraling pavilion of glass and steel brings art, architecture, music, and film to children of all ages. Renowned George Tsypin Opera Factory creates a mystical underwater experience. The rider sits within iridescent fish that glide through the sights and sounds of a 360° aquatic adventure.
Opening Thursday Aug 20 – 1:00pm – 12:00am | tickets $5
