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.

Part of Legoland. We had park hopper tickets and explored Legoland and Sea Life Aquarium over two days. On our first visit, we had a blast.

We bought the pass as an add on with Legoland. We paid an extra $20 to see this exhibit. It took about an hour and was not worth anymore than $20. They did have some interesting things that I have never seen before. I really liked the shark pods, and the razor fish was really interesting. I also enjoyed the... More
