In town for a visit in hot July. My daughter and her husband looked for an attraction that was indoors and air conditioned. Her husband had never been to an aquarium so that settled the matter. The website warned that they have heavy attendance on the weekend. This is inside a large and very busy mall. "Quadrant 7" is where?... More

Very good experience to take the family to. It's pricey, but we were able to use POGO passes we bought, which give you really good deals on several places to visit in Phoenix area. Our grand daughters enjoyed it very much.

excellent place to take the kids. price is a little steep, but look for coupons where kids get in free with paid adult. Not only was there great marine life to view, there was interactive activities for the kids. pretty cool place.

Very nice smallish aquarium that my grandson loved. Located in a mall. I loved it too! Nice place to cool off.

The aquarium is pretty small and a bit pricey ($18/person) but well maintained. It took us about an hour and a half to make it through. There is a rainforest cafe in the same mall that offers coupons for free admission for children and you can sometimes find other discount coupons online. If you have small children, ask for the...

I'm an artist currently doing a series of paintings on fish. There are very few places to look at and research live moving fish in Arizona, so when I came across this place, I was hopeful. The reviews and the appearance implies that it is geared towards small children. And it didn't help we were in line with a bunch... More

Our 2-year old toddler is a big fan of aquariums, and while Sea Life Aquarium is a lot smaller than the other aquariums he has visited, he had a blast running around the various exhibits. The aquarium is a little over-priced, but it gave our family a good 1 1/2 hour of fun. I also appreciate the fact that it... More

We had gone for Mother’s Day as they had a nice discount for moms! The line took about 30 minutes to get through, I don’t imagine that it’s that busy all the time? Either way, after we entered, the first thing that happens is that you have to have pictures taken doing all sorts of funny poses. We didn’t want... More

Sometimes attractions are so huge that we either feel we have to rush to get it all in or stop when we're tired and wonder what we missed! This aquarium is the perfect size. The tanks are low enough for younger kids to enjoy the view. There is a diverse collection of sea life here and plenty of spots to... More
