- Renting a pool/venue
- Troy Beach on the St. Croix River, or other beaches (conditions apply, see below)
- Mermaids are big! With our full costume on, we can be almost 7 feet in length. We will check with you to see if your pool is suitable and safe to host Mermaid Echo.

- $8.00 per vehicle *Price subject to change
- Troy Beach Website
- Mermaid Echo may be able to visit other local beaches depending on the water quality (current, visibility, depth), guests’ swimming abilities, and beach traffic
- Echo wants to ensure everyone’s safety, that all of her attention can be focused on the guests (other children at the beach might love mermaids too!)
- Hosts can choose to celebrate at a local hotel pool
- This option is often the cheapest if an indoor location is desired, or if a private pool is not available
- The below listed hotels offer open swim fees, or are the cheapest we could find in the St. Croix Valley area (prices subject to change).

- The Hudson House offers an open swim option for $3.50/person
- The pool features a shallow and deep end with tables and chairs on the pool deck
- Econo Lodge, River Falls, WI
- The Econo Lodge offers an open swim option for $5/person
- They also allow a party room rental with the use of the pool for $75 for 2 hours and an additional $25 for every hour after that
