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

We took the grandkids. Lots of fun for the kids. Hands on the starfish and fun ways to watch the sea life.

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

My son had his 5th bday party and it was nice... The party host and her partner / assistant server was very accommodating and checks on us frequently. She was very attentive to our needs. The first part of the party package was reptile encounter (lizard) wherein the kids took turn touching its back. Then we proceeded upstairs for a... More

Good to combine with Legoland and the waterpark, perhaps less worth to visit on its own. Children enjoyed it.

great way to spend some time after you get tired of legoland. It's dark and cool in there and they have an octopus which is very cool to watch. We enjoyed it.

Again, just like lego land, this is geared for the younger crowd...you can walk through the entire area in 45min or less. I enjoyed it though but wish it was bigger! The quiz/scratch off was interesting and kept the older kids busy and you can turn it in at the end for a sticker and baseball card of one of... More

Really, I was expecting a lot more!! Yes, they have a couple of displays where you can touch some of the sea life but overall it was very small and not much to see. Save your money unless you have a pass for all 3 parks.

It is nice to start here before LegoLand opens. The aquarium opens at 9am so enjoy an hour learning about all types of sea life before entering legoland at 10am.
