The Adventure Aquarium is fun, educational and hands on! The staff was friendly and helpful and the facility was clean. This was a family trip(Mom, Dad, 1 teen & 2 elementary age children). We took advantage of the homeschool days offered as we are a homeschool family. We ALL enjoyed the touch exhibits and the shark tunnel was our absolute... More

It's a decent sized aquarium and the best part is that you can touch the Sharks, stingrays and crabs.. So expect a lot of people.. They also have little penguins on the outside of the aquarium.. Food is ok and fairly priced..

Besides all the other attractions, 3D movie, touching pools, tanks and aquariums, we where randomly selected to take a tour of the behind the scenes working of the large fish tank. What a thrill for both young and old alike. Hope you get the chance.

Totally worth it for the hippos. They were amazing. Like the footprint better than Baltimore. Even when crowded not jammed packed. Lots of touch exhibits for kids. The large viewing tank and the shark tunnel were really cool too. Would recommend for a nice afternoon trip with children.

Buy your tickets online. It is expensive at the door. Not great and not horrible. I am just spoiled since EXPO Okinawa can not compare. The penguin area is a joke. Very small. Had a nice little slide next to the penguin exhibit which my 7 year old liked. Overall, if nothing to do, take the kids there. Most likely... More
