"Zoo Tycoon: Marine Mania" increases the fun and excitement of running a zoo with new features such as customizable killer whale and dolphin shows and whimsical marine-themed buildings and attractions. Marine specialists are on hand to ensure the aquatic creatures are well taken care of and provide players with tips on keeping them happy and healthy, both of which are vital to a successful zoo. The zoo visitor's experience is awash with interactive activities including strolling through a shark tunnel, paddling around in rented boats and even swimming with dolphins. In addition, an abundance of sea objects are available to enhance exhibits. Guests can be awed by vibrant coral displays as they watch dolphins jump through hoops and sharks navigate through sunken treasures.
Caring for marine animals also presents players with new challenges, from learning proper care of aquatic animals to carefully considering water depth and filtration. Eleven marine-specific scenarios put players' zoo management abilities to the test as they strive to harmonize animal and guest needs to keep their zoo thriving.
Developed by Blue Fang Games LLC, the "Zoo Tycoon: Marine Mania" expansion pack integrates seamlessly with the original "Zoo Tycoon," which is required for play. "Zoo Tycoon: Marine Mania" also includes all the prehistoric content available in "Zoo Tycoon: Dinosaur Digs," an expansion pack that was released earlier this year. "Zoo Tycoon" players can now merge land animals, prehistoric beasts and aquatic creatures in a quest to build the ultimate zoo.
