The aquarium was a good place to go for the family. There was alot to see from sharks to jellyfish to stingrays.

Expense for how little is there. Enjoyed the shark tunnel and string rays. Very small. Doesn't take long to see everything.

We loved seeing all the fish and the aquarium. It is a bit pricey for admission. The new jelly fish exhibit was very good and they kids liked being able to touch the sting rays and the horseshoe crabs.

I personally like the aquarium, my husband doesn't. We went to the new dinosaur exhibit...completely disappointed. Way overpriced for the short walk among the smaller than expected animatronics.

It's really crowded on rainy days. It's also located near loads of places to eat and shop. So, its a good way to spend a rainy afternoon.

Our family totally enjoyed this aquarium, we found it to be well worth the money spent. Our favorite was the shark tunnel. Will visit again.

This place is way overpriced. The exhibits are not all that great. I would not recommend it. It is overcrowded and too congested.
