I suppose it's a bit like Disneyland....way overpriced, but you do it for the kids. While not as expensive as Disneyland, I felt it was a little much for what it was. There was a lot to see though, and my kids (3 and 4) had a blast, especially in the playground area. I think it might be better for... More

We go every time we're in town and so excited to be able to take our 1 year old now. Looking forward to going back when she's a little older.

During a day at the Arizona Mills Mall we found the Sea Life Aquarium. It was a beautiful place to spend a couple hours! It was fun for the younger people in our group but I think the older people enjoyed the peaceful spaces to just watch the fish. I'll be going back!

If you've been to a really good aquarium in San Diego, Chicago, Chattanooga, you will be severely disappointed with Sea Life at Arizona Mills. We took our two granddaughters (7 and 9) and they loved it but have never been to a large Aquarium. I was grateful I bought the tickets on line which gave us a nice discount. I... More

It was a nice way to spend the day however it was not what I thought. While I enjoyed myself I felt the facility and the tanks on display are much smaller than advertised.

The Aquarium was a little pricey for how small it is, but it's in a great location since you can see the aquarium and then catch an IMAX movie or do a little shopping. The aquarium had a couple of unique tanks that I hadn't seen at any aquarium before. There's some great tunnels and interactive exhibits for kids and... More

This aquarium has a fantastic location inside the Arizona Mills Mall. It was perfect for children that you are able to spend time in the aquarium, shop and then return to the aquarium. My son enjoyed the under aquarium domes. The variety of marine species was impressive. The aquariums were well kept, clean and the marine species appears healthy. We... More

The New England Aquarium it's not, and admittedly, Arizona only has three aquaria that I know about. However, this is a good experience, and their prices are reasonable. It is a good place to take children. The centerpiece seems to be their shark tanks. They have a large one, and there is a walkthrough on one side, and you can... More

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.
