This feature adds so much value to Legoland and I was impressed by the variety of sea life they had there! So nice to break up day and spend time there and then return back to Legoland...will definitely return again.

Nice addition to LEGOLAND but I think we rolled through in about 45 min. The exhibits are nice and the variety is good. Just not huge and all are enclosed aquarium no big fish.

This aquarium on its own is not a spectacular attraction....however when paired with Legoland it adds value to your visit.....well worth a look.

Good break from visiting lego land. Multiple floors and exhibits for keep my 6 year old entertained. Photo opportunities that can be printed on lego bricks are a fun souvenir.

I enjoyed it too! has several petting areas for kids to experience. the being inside "the fishbowl" areas were cute for kids but difficult access for adults. The exhibits were cool.

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.
