What a cool place!!! lots of kids...so be patient. Amazing exhibits!! We got to touch a shark and stingray!! The shark tunnel is crazy neat! As was the hippopotomus! Even the Kid zone had spectacular species to see. We got the Beat the heat price, after 3pm for $17. Yet, you need to do it on your smart phone. Great... More

Kids will have a great time. I would try to go on a day other than Saturday in the summer. (I didn't have a choice.) It was mobbed. Exhibits are numerous and the facility itself is very nice. Overall it was a nice time and the kids didn't seem to mind all of the people as much as I.

We really enjoyed being this aquarium. Lot of exhibits, good educational experience for kids. Some of the shows are really good. Touch & feel Stingrays. Underwater shark tunnel is awesome. A good place for one day family fun. A must see place.

After experiencing the Battleship New Jersey we took a short stroll to the aquarium. This is a neat place to visit at least once especially if a local. There were a few attractions running at this time to include Dinosaurs of the Deep, Penguins at Play, Hippo Haven, Ocean Realm, & of course the main attraction Mysterious Sharks. There is... More

We visitied the adventure aquarium after going to the Reading Terminal market in Philly, where we ate lunch. The Aquarium sits on the waterfront overlooking downtown Philadelphia and the Battleship NJ. We entered the aquarium and headed right to the Hippos.....I could have spent the day watching them, but we didn't. What an amazing animal. We continued through where we... More

It's a bit pricey (about $26), but this was a beautiful facility and the exhibits were great. The shark tunnel was enthralling, as was another two-story tank with a huge glass window where you could see divers in with the sharks. The hippos were very fun, and it was great to be able to touch sharks, stingrays and other sea... More

Adventure Aquarium is a great little attraction for those who love to do fish gazing. It is a unique attraction for Central and South New Jersey area. (There is much smaller but fun aquarium in Point Pleasant, NJ). We toured the aquarium in under 4 hours including lunch in the cafeteria. The Aquarium is divided into Zones A to D... More

So many great animal exhibits! We loved the shark tunnel! The petting of the stingrays was an amazing experience. Beginning face to face with hippos and penguins was wonderful! All around a fun adventure!! There is a charge for parking, I believe it was $10. Take your camera!!

I went yesterday with my 2 and 7 yr old grandchildren. They loved it! Everything about it is awesome. I can't single any of the exhibits. Ù Don't miss Hippo Haven that brings you to the Shark exhibit and UNDERWATER TUNNEL that blew my mind. I want to go back on a quiet winter day

The guides were very kind and upbeat. The aquarium was very nice and the animals are well taken care of. The interactive exhibits are very cool, especially the hippos. The highlight of the shark experience was actually swimming with the rays THAT WAS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING.
