5 WATER-DWELLING ANIMALS
Care for five magnificent new aquatic animals: the King Penguin, Giant Otter, Grey Seal, Dwarf Caiman, and the exhibit-based Diamondback Terrapin. Keep your habitat animals entertained by splashing the cash on three new enrichment items in rubber ducks, platform floats, and jetties.
By building below-ground observation points, guests will love sinking time into marvelling at your new animals playing both on, and under, the water’s surface.
OVER 170 NEW SCENERY PIECES
Discover a whole new range of scenery and blueprints. Both regular and aquatic-themed pieces will help you build your ultimate zoo. Decorate walls with murals depicting wild jungles and icy tundra; pick reflective materials embracing water’s mirror-like qualities; display graceful new animal sculptures; and even make your own cascading waterfalls.
Your animals will adore their new surroundings. From warm sedimentary rivers and mangroves for the Giant Otter and Dwarf Caiman, to frigid coastlines for the King Penguin and Grey Seal, you can lovingly recreate each species’ environment.
MASTER THE CHALLENGE
Head to Oregon, USA and try your hand at reviving a water-themed zoo set around a dried-up riverbed. Spruce up the habitats, introduce new species, and add some much-needed love to return the place to its former glory. If you want to test your skills while experiencing everything the Aquatic Pack has to offer, this timed scenario is the perfect showcase.
This DLC pack is accompanied by a large free update as well. This update includes animal education show attractions, some new and improved management tabs, and various new mechanics to complement the DLC’s aquatic animals. These include underwater feeders and water temperature regulators. You can read more about the update here.
