If you have the ticket from legoland, it is a nice way to spend a half hour. Small but nicely done. Plenty of interesting things to see and kid themed. Wouldn't pay much for it, but since part of our ticket, it was worth doing

Small and overpriced. Not very educational. My three kids did did not enjoy it. Staff was rude, other guests were very rude. It was a mess also, and that was at opening time!

I loved that this aquarium was kid focused. The glass on most tanks was low so that they could easily see, the walkways were wide enough for guests but not so wide that kids could get lost, there were questions along the way to help them learn about what they were seeing and to earn a sticker at the end,...

We got a five day pass for the family. The Legoland park was just okay .. The Chima water park was amazing, great for the whole family. The Aquarium was just sad , one large tank in the center of the building that you see from about ten different angles. Not to mention they repeat the fish in every other... More

I guess for the price of the hopper it was ok. My 7 year old was very disappointed. It took us about 30 minutes to walk thru. Wasnt impressed with lego land either. Once is enough for us

Small add on to Legoland. Not worth a special trip (Go to La Jolla Aquarium instead), but a fun addition to your Legoland ticket.

Definitely worth seeing. Bring your kids. Creatively displays sea life of all kinds. Walk under and over the aquariums, even stick your head up into one!

The aquarium is definitely designed with kids in mind, although adults can also go under many of the displays to get a completely different experience. Thank you for your review. More

I loved this aquarium. It took us only about an hour to go through but they have many amazing tanks and a big tunnel one with other views around the rest of the aquarium. They couldn't have it set up any nicer. I truly enjoyed myself
