Merlin Entertainments has announced that two of its premier attractions – Sea Life Aquarium and Legoland Discovery Center – will be featured in Shops at Rivercenter, a premier shopping, dining and entertainment destination on the world-famous Riverwalk in downtown San Antonio, Texas.

Working in conjunction with developer Ashkenazy Acquisition Corporation, which owns the large-scale shopping mall, Merlin said the new Sea Life Aquarium and Legoland Discovery Center are scheduled to open in 2018.

“These attractions will further define the Shops at Rivercenter and downtown San Antonio as one of the premier entertainment destinations throughout the US,” says Ben Ashkenazy, CEO of Ashkenazy Acquisitions Corporation.

Merlin Entertainments’ chief new openings officer, John Jakobsen, added: “Shops at Rivercenter’s location on the world-famous Riverwalk and its close proximity to The Alamo, a national historic landmark, makes this project especially exciting for us. It’s the ultimate family destination- the ideal environment for our attractions.”
