A good time was had by all
Back in 2021, the Japanese aquarium Yokohama Hakkeijima Sea Paradise jumped on the Animal Crossing: New Horizons bandwagon by putting together a real-life version of the game’s stamp rally event. This was a one-time event, complete with special Animal Crossing cards, aquarium exhibits detailed by Blathers, and a gift shop full of Animal Crossing merch. While none of us were able to attend this special event in person, we can at least look back on it through a series of fan-captured videos.
In the Tiktoks below, you can get a closer look at all the Animal Crossing fun the event had to offer. It looks like it was a really fun way to capture the excitement around Animal Crossing: New Horizons and turn it into something equally fun and educational. Let’s hope another aquarium or museum puts together something like this in the future!
