They may be things of myth and legend otherwise, but at Aquarium Restaurant at Nashville's Opry Mills, mermaids have made a splash and are the newest attraction at the popular family-friendly eatery.
The Mystic Mermaids present choreographed shows to kids of all ages featuring under-the-sea themed music in the dining room aquarium tank. Following each show, the Mystic Mermaids — Cora and Kaya — will interact with kids during a meet and greet along with photo opportunities. It's a nifty way to make your family's dining experience at Nashville Aquarium all the more fun.
"We are excited to heat up this back-to-school season at Nashville Aquarium by introducing the Mystic Mermaids to our visitors," says Scot Hulgan, regional director of the Specialty Restaurant Division of Landry's, Inc., owners of Aquarium Restaurant. "The shows are a one-of-a-kind experience and allow our visitors of all ages to venture on a mystic voyage with our very talented mermaids," he adds.
In addition, Aquarium Restaurant now offers Mystic Mermaid Breakfasts and birthday party packages — these shows feature a narrated, conservation-focused segment. The Under-the-Sea Breakfast is $18.99 adults, $15.99 ages 3 - 10.
In August, the regular show takes place Fridays, Aug. 5, 12, 19 and 26 at 6 and 7 p.m. as well as Sundays, Aug. 7, 14, 21 and 28 at 1 and 2 p.m. The Mystic Mermaids Breakfast is Saturday, Aug. 20 at 8:30 a.m. (reservations required).
