Aquarium at the Boardwalk Set to Open in Branson in 2020

Where there was once the Grand Palace, now will be the Aquarium at the Boardwalk. The City of Branson just announced the opening of this 46,000 square foot aquarium that will be coming to Branson in summer 2020. While this is exciting news for Branson and the surrounding areas, it is especially exciting news for us here at H2R, as we were able to come alongside Kuvera Partners and help them determine the feasibility, name and logo for this new major attraction.

“We’ve gained excellent insight through eight rounds of consumer testing with H2R Market Research over the last three years and all of the data pointed us here,” said Kuvera Partner Tej Sundher. The research conducted by H2R was used to help secure a $7 million Tax Increment Financing, which was unanimously approved by the Branson Board of Alderman on February 26, 2019. The proposed Aquarium at the Boardwalk is a $51 million project.

Summer 2020 cannot come soon enough – we are so excited to see this aquarium come to life (literally!).
