This is absolutely a first class attraction which our whole family thoroughly enjoyed. The aquarium deals with both fresh and salt water life. My teens aged 14/16 loved it especially the shark exhibit and the bat ray feeding. I was very impressed at how well done the facility is.The signage and descriptions of the exhibits are clear and interesting. I... More

Must have attraction in Toronto area, but area is too small and is too crowded. an average aquarium, less interactive activities, Visit only if you haven't visited an aquarium ever in your life. Its avoidable and nothing to brag about this.

We had family coming in from the UK, and one of them was a fisherman so we decided that this would be a perfect way to spend the afternoon after picking them up from the airport. We walked around for 2 hours and could have easily went though another time. We very much enjoyed the part where you can walk... More

Very fun way to spend an afternoon! My one recommendation would be to buy your tickets online ahead of time. This way you'll be able to bypass the (absolutely massive) line of ticket buyers and join the (teeny tiny) line of ticket holders. We waited in the buyers line, bought tickets on our phone, and were able to enter almost... More

I enjoyed going into this location at first for the amazing amounts of knowledge I would get about the creatures under water. Though after walking through I become stale to the knowledge being read and just stood in awe of the creatures in their habitats. I find this quite the educational experience for anyone bringing children, quite interactive for young... More

To be honest, I really didn't expect much. Having been to Disney World, Disney Land, Universal Studios, Sea World, ect... but I have to say that I was pretty impressed with our newest TO. attraction! Good job Ripley's!!

I had thought about talking our grandson somewhere special for his birthday, I travel past the Aquarium quite often, although the building from the outside seemed alittle small. This place is so well planned, it makes you feel that you are in another world under the ocean. We went on a week day so it was less crowded. The movable... More

My family and I (two adults, two young children) finally had an opportunity to visit the Ripley’s Aquarium during the March break and it was without a doubt fantastic. Despite the fact that it was very busy due to the break, we didn’t have to wait to purchase tickets or get into the facility (tip, their website will actually advise... More

The aquarium is very modern and easy to navigate. The tunnel where you are surrounded by fish and on the loving sidewalk is amazing! You need to go at the very least, once, but I would recommend more, so you get the full experience. For the best experience, try to go in the middle of the week or later in... More
