“We’ve been working on developing a plan for a successful aquarium in Oklahoma for several years, and we’ve finally been able to get it off the ground,” Aikanson CEO Brian Aikerman told Polygon.
“We are incredibly proud of our team, our partners, and our employees.
We’re very excited to bring this facility to Oklahoma, which is a state with a unique culture, and the world.”
