When we are in this area we always go back to the Aquarium. Always much to see and do. Great staff and the price is right within our budget.

$25 admission was a bit pricy. This place was very interesting and would have given 5 stars but it didn't take long to go through it and didn't seem like you get your money's worth. Very interesting though and great place for kids

This is great place to spend a few hours in, especially with kids or hey, if you're like me - without kids but love zoos and aquariums ;-) I went with a friend and her family, including an excited 5yo and we had a total blast. The moving footpath and 'water tunnel' was fantastic and we loved watching sharks swim... More

Very nice aquarium. A bit pricey for the size, but you can get through it in an hour. Interactive things for the kids.

Decent attraction to visit, may be a little overpriced. The shark tunnel with moving walkway is amazing! Kept us entertained for about an hour and a half with our 21 month old. If you plan to go to any other ripleys attractions by the combo tickets and save a ton!

My daughter and I went to the aquarium for the first time and had a great experience! There was so much to see and do. Sally helped my daughter learn about the aquarium and all of the fish in the tank. I am very pleased and I will come back again this summer.

We enjoyed our time at the aquarium, although my daughter was disappointed to miss the mermaids (my fault for not checking the times). The shark tank is impressive and gives you plenty of time to really take it all in and see many different fish, turtles, sharks and even star fish. It is not a very large aquarium but for... More

We took our grandchildren, 8 and 12 and had to drag them out to make it to the airport in time! Great way to spend a rainy afternoon!

Overpriced for the size. It only took us an hour to go through it and for the price it should have taken longer than that. It is very small. The under water walkway was very cool though and that was my justification for spending that much money on the entry fee. If you are on a budget and looking for... More
