Silvergate Media and Merlin Entertainments have joined forces on their new activity trail.

The attraction will firstly open at Sea Life Mall of America before beginning its voyage to Sea Life centres globally.

Silvergate’s new interactive activity based Octonauts trail allows visitors to embark on a journey to complete missions and save the sea creatures. The Great Gup Rescue features Gups (the Octonauts’ aquatic vehicles) with characters  Captain Barnacles and Dashi.

Families will experience an activity trail throughout the site where they can help save the day and become a hero in the rescue.

“I’m always looking for exciting experiences for our guests at SEA LIFE at Mall of America, we are thrilled to have The Great Gup Rescue”, said General Manager Trisha Ruf. “This partnership will spark even more imagination, adventure and wonder with guests at SEA LIFE Aquariums here in Minnesota and worldwide.”

“We are thrilled to be introducing a brand-new Octonauts activity trail at SEA LIFE centres. Children will have the opportunity to become truly immersed in their own Octonauts adventure and live experiences that deliver on fun and education,” said Lisa Macdonald, SVP Content and Consumer Product Sales at Silvergate Media.
