Peter G. Decker, Jr. to Star in Nauticus Exhibit

Local attorney and philanthropist Peter G. "Uncle Pete" Decker will play the starring role in Nauticus' upcoming summer attraction Atlantis! A Labyrinth Adventure, opening July 2 in the Half Moone Cruise and Celebration Center. This 17,000 square-foot experience will propel visitors into the fantasy world of Poseidon through a series of interactive challenges, mazes and games.

Decker will portray fictional explorer "Peter Siden" in the introductory film that sets the stage for participants. As a tribute to Decker and his wife, Bess, introducing and spearheading Norfolk's mermaid campaign, the experience will feature an elaborate Mermaid Room. Additionally, guests will swim with jellyfish, race sea turtles and wind through seaweed on their way to discover Atlantis.

"There's no one more appropriate to star in this summer blockbuster than Pete Decker," said Stephen E. Kirkland, Assistant Executive Director of Nauticus. "We needed a fearless, charismatic leader to spearhead this mission to Atlantis!"

Atlantis! A Labyrinth Adventure will run July 2 - September 4 from 10 a.m.-5 p.m, with late hours until 7 p.m. on Thursdays. Adults are $6, children ages 4-12 are $5, Nauticus members are $3 and children three and under are free.
