Nice little aquarium

Nice, little aquarium. Enjoyed the 4D movie, and the touch exhibit. Quick ticket/check in progress. Easy parking. Little crowed at spots.

I hadn't been to this aquarium in many years but was pleasantly surprised at how nice it is now. There are lots of great exhibits available. Everything is well maintained and if you take the time to read the informative plaques you can learn a lot. There are friendly employees walking around some of the larger exhibits who are knowledgeable... More

We have been members here for many years. Our kids love visiting this place. Gets VERY crowded on days where schools are off - holidays, legal holidays etc. You can wait in line for 30+ minutes to get in. Sundays are not too bad. The penguin feeding is cute, catch that.

The place is very nice, easy to get to and a friendly staff. We went on a holiday which I would not recommend. It was very crowded. The exhibits were excellent and the staff well versed on the animals. Eating there was a prbleq

It's a really nice place if you can get past the huge crowds and people generally walking into you all the time. The place lacks a general one way traffic flow so people are constantly wandering around. As a mom to an older child, I can easily say that this place is designed for under 12. Everyone will enjoy the... More

UNORGANIZED, NOTHING TO SEE, HORRIBLE FOOD WITH NO PLACE TO(100 SEATS FOR 1000 PEOPLE) TERRIBLE STAFF. They have a few different parking lots, each lot guard sent me to another until I made a complete circle. I also had a mobile ticket to avoid standing in a ridiculously long line, only to go to another line who just had me... More

The quote was " the only thing that beats this is Disney Word". Petting sharks and sting rays topped the favorites followed closely by watching the hippos being fed.

This is a great place for families. I have been a member for years with my son who is autistic, Every year it keeps expanding which is nice. They are working on expanding the penguin area right now. They have an exhibit Dinosaurs of the Deep running right now. I only wish that they kept the seals. My son loved... More

One of the best aquariums we've been to as far as things to see, do, and touch. Feed sting rays, pet sharks, watch a 4-D movie, visit the penguins, etc. Great variety of sea creatures. And the hippos are amazing. So giant. But not a good place for the elderly or people with trouble navigating through crowds. The crowd sort... More
