Jungle Reef, developed by the Hepworth brothers is an immersive venture that pledges to captivate and offer visitors engagement with aquatic wonders. The journey continues marked by resilience, innovation and an unwavering commitment to crafting unforgettable experiences. El Paso’s first and sole interactive aquarium, invites the community  to partake in its legacy and embrace the marvels of exploration and discovery. 

Visitors are offered a transformative experience, reshaping their approach to exploring marine and terrestrial life. Within this immersive environment, individuals are invited to delve into the underwater realm by encountering sharks, gliding alongside stingrays, interacting with playful otters and uncovering the mesmerizing world of aquatic animals . The establishment’s immersive exhibits present diverse species, ranging from colorful birds to captivating reptiles, all within environments meticulously crafted to mimic their natural habitats closely. 

Guided by a vision to restore The Shoppes at Solana, formerly known as Sunland Park Mall, the Hepworth brothers persist in their mission with determination with Jungle Reef, poised as the latest addition to the family entertainment landscape, formerly occupied by Old Navy. The ambitious project aims to redefine family entertainment, injecting a fresh wave of excitement into the community.
