Going to Underwater Adventure feels like you're in a section of a big zoo or Sea World. The shark tank is worth the price of admission - walking through/under a gigantic tank full of sharks, eels, and other animals is really fun. Check for discount tickets on various online sites before buying your tickets. They also have special events that... More

Jellyfish in colored tanks. Stingrays, sharks and other creatures you can pet. Take your time walking through the glass tunnel with all the sea creatures all around. Lots of walking but at your own pace. Our backstage tour was the only let down. Boring.

We are local and my youngest asked to have Underwater Adventure as her birthday party activity. I would definitely recommend checking out the annual pass option, as it pays for itself after only a couple visits. Since we have the annual pass we have been there a few times, and we have enjoyed ourselves each time. There is a small... More

Photo ops, underwater and environmental education, Underwater Adventure has it all! Once the daily wristband is purchased, your family can enjoy Underwater Adventure all day! The end of the park has a gift shop.

This was a fun attraction. You felt as though you were in with the sea life with the tunnel. It was on the more expensive side for the amount of time it took. But worth the visit at least once.

This is a definite must go if you are planning a visit to the Mall of America! Took my 3yr old grandson and spent time looking at the dozens of exhibits of everything from sea turtles to the sharks in the large overhead tanks! So many varieties of underwater life and knowledgeable staff to explain their purposes! Good attraction for... More

This attraction has been renamed, as the ownership has changed. The original name was Underwater Adventure in the Mall of America. It is now known as Sea Life Minnesota Aquarium at the Mall of America. If you are already at the Mall of America (Bloomington, MN), then this attraction is worth it to see. However, as with most high-priced attractions,... More

Our family really enjoyed the Underwater Adventure. We were lucky enough to take a "behind the scenes" tour, which fortunately included feeding the animals. It was a terrific experience and one which we all enjoyed! We would highly recommend taking this tour on your visit to Underwater Adventure.
