It's not worth the price. Customer service was poor. Was not excited and my son show no interest and he loves the aquariums but this one he did not care for at all.

Very attractive displays of fish; sea horses; lobsters; sharks; manta rays etc . Interesting exhibits allowed visitors to enter inside the aquarium via a domed structure. this allowed the fish to swim all around you. Also a hallway with an aquarium in the ceiling and all around you. very impressive. Suitable for young children and adults of all ages. very... More

We had some time to spend and looked for something to do. For only $20/adult it was not bad at all. We spent just over an hour looking at all the exhibits. They were very interesting with a wide variety of very colorful types of fish. We loved seeing the seahorses. It was geared towards kids with special portholes for... More

Despite being in a shopping mall, this aquarium merits a visit of at least two hours. They have beautiful fish, beautifully displayed.

We spent about 2 hours here with our 3-1/2 and 18 month old. They loved it! Some good exhibits and interactions. They have a little stamp quest to keep them interested so they get a prize at the end. We brought a stroller through the entire thing, and there is a little play area at the end.

It's a small place that's fun for young kids. We really only spent an hour here, and that was more than enough. Because of that, it bothers me that they charge $15-$16 + tax, which seems too high for the amount of time spent. Even my 3 yr old was done after the hour. But if you want a short... More

We had a layover in Phoenix and decided to see some of the town. We found Sea Life to be a great attraction, because it occupied our 3-year-old for about two hours, considering it's in-house play area. They also had some really beautiful specimens of fish of which I'd never heard. I think even adults should be impressed by this.

Great place to see a variety of fish. It is somewhat small so take your time. At one point you walk through a tunnel of fish. The employees are very friendly and helpful.

The location is great. It's inside the arizona mills mall which was convenient. The walk through was very organized and informative. My family and I used a coupon that we found at the entrance of the mall which was good for any ticket $10. I thought that was a good price since it being in a mall probably wouldn't be... More
