The event is called “The Beach Tampa by Snarkitecture” and it’s open August 5th through August 25th at Amalie Arena in Tampa. So, what is it? The Beach Tampa makes its own ocean from 1.2 million white balls (which are all recyclable and antimicrobial!). They fill the 15,000-square-foot arena to make a giant swimming area. In the arena, there’s also a pier that you can walk on, beach huts, chairs, and umbrellas!
Forget about those nightmares about ball pits from your childhood. This will be different, since the white balls that Snarkitecture uses are protected with an item called GermBLOCK, which protects them (and you!) from germs.
Even better? This event is available at no cost! You can enjoy The Beach Tampa for completely free! It’s open Monday to Thursday from 12 – 8 pm, Friday from 12 to 10 pm, Saturday from 10 am – 10 pm and Sunday from 10 am – 6 pm. So grab your (regular clothes?) and have a ball!
