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

We loved this aquarium. It had an underwater tunnel, that led us through the aquatic sealife. Very beautiful!

Nice aquarium. Good experience with your Legoland trip. The best part was the tunnel you go through with the sharks and stingrays swimming above you. I liked the fact that you got to see the largest tank from multiple points of view.

This is a really fun aquarium, and our boys (ages 5 and 7) really loved it. It is fun, with Lego characters throughout and areas where they can touch some sea animals. The boys really liked the sting rays, jelly fish, sharks and the octopus. It took us about an hour to walk through, so I don't know that it... More

I don't think I'd go out of the way to make a special trip to SeaLife, but on a mulit-day Legoland pass it was a nice break from the heat and lines for a few hours. It's rather small, but they squish a lot of stuff in and kids are able to get up close to lots of things. Since... More
