We always enjoy the walk through this peaceful aquarium. We could watch the fish all day long. Especially like the room where the school of fish swim around you in a circle. Also, the staff is very friendly and helpful.

This aquarium tied into the LEGOLAND resort has some very beautiful displays. The interactive nature of the displays was a hit with out 11 year old. For my wife and I, we felt the educational material present was quite limited. I did get the impression however, that every effort was made to see to the needs of the animals and... More

We got the ticket for this as part of the LEGOLAND ticket. It's OK, but not great. Pretty standard stuff, if you've not been to an aquarium then maybe it would be a good idea

The Sea Life Aquarium is part of Legoland. It's an additional price to visit. It's a fun little aquarium that doesn't take very long to go through. Good for the whole family!

It's no different from other aquarium we had been before. Same o thing like jelly fishes, glass tunnel where sharks and other fish are seen swimming above your head. It only took us 30 minutes or less to go around and play with their hands on exhibits then went back in to Legoland park to finish our day.

This aquarium was better than I expected. It took us about an hour or so to see it all, but probably could have spent a little more time there. If you have a park hopper, I'd definately recommend checking it out.

Having been to many aquariums, this one was average at best. The tanks/displays are nothing special, with no distinct theme (not that I noticed) and it felt crowded. Before you know it you pop out into the souvenir shop and the end. Looking back I can't really remember much about it. That says it all. Average and not at all... More

This is a really nice aquarium with a good variety of sea life to explore. The underwater tunnel and bubbles for the kids to poke their heads up in are really cool! It was nice to have places where you could touch the sea life as well as learn about it. Who knew that shark eggs looked like that!?!?! It... More
