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.

My kids and I love to go to Underwater Adventures. It's a little spendy but if you go on a Tuesday with your toddlers at least you can get a cheap meal for them afterwards! Toddler Tuesdays at the MOA! There are also frequently coupons in the paper.

We really enjoyed the amount of things to see and do at the Underwater Adventure. We loved the opportunity to touch the stingrays, baby sharks, and star fish. The gift shop is quite pricey, but overall totally worth the extra few dollars.

We went here with our grandchildren, and everyone had a nice time. The tunnel underwater was especially neat. There are some really nice size sharks swimming right by us, which was really fun to watch. Tide pool was nice where kids could reach in and touch the sea urchins & starfish. Good for all ages.

My family iwth 2 boys ages 7 and 10, really enjoyed Underwater Adventure. Having lived in Minneapolis, we purchased a memebership for the year, and even though we thoughly used the membership, I'm not sure if I would recomend it. After touring the facility 2x's we pretty much just breezed though it after that.

This is great for kids of all ages. Don't go without a coupon, however. Its quite expensive. Sharkey usually wanders around the mall handing out coupons. Grab one.
