Electric City Aquarium & Reptile Den

Lackawanna County’s newest attraction is the wonderful Electric City Aquarium & Reptile Den. Dedicated to education and conservation, their 20,000-square-foot facility has been carefully planned to accommodate each member of their animal, reptile, and fish family. If you think high definition is awesome, you’ll be astounded as you see the vibrant colors of the various species of fish swimming in crystal blue waters. Wind your way through the Frog Swamp and the Snake Den. Visit the Lizard Lair before braving Gator Alley. Leave the reptiles behind and continue your adventure in the Shark Reef. Get your hands wet in the touch tanks and pet some stingrays in Ray Bay.

It really is, in fact, better, down where it’s wetter, under the sea. Completely Immerse yourself in Catfish Cove, where you will find yourself surrounded by fish on all sides. There are so many incredible creatures and interactive displays, visitors will have an educational experience they’ll never forget.


Let the keepers teach you about some of Electric City Aquarium & Reptile Den's resident animals with a 25-minute show in the education room. During the shows, you'll have the chance to get up close and personal with snakes, alligators, turtles, and more! On the weekends, get a closer look at how the keepers feed their resident animals. For a list of show/feeding times, visit the EC Aquarium & Reptile Den's website.
