Sea Life Aquarium was a ton of fun! We took our 18 month old on a weekday and purchased discounted tickets online in advance. It was very clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and each of the 8 little stations was so well put together. It was informative and had so many different ways to view the sea... More

This place is in a mall. I'm not a big mall fan but we had our 5 year-old grandson with us and he needed a diversion. I had low expectations and was pleasantly surprised by this spot. Far more exhibits than I had anticipated and we lucked into a book reading and a special underwater surprise with a visit from... More

What a treat to experience this wonderful aquarium in of all places, a mall. Lego experience is next door too! Kids loved it and on a rainy day, was a perfect respite from the weather.

This was a very cute aquarium. I heard previously from customers that it's small and not worth the money. I went for myself, and it was actually very interactive and lots of fun fish to look at. This aquarium is way better than the one in Dallas, Tx and it's inside the mall. There's lots of fun facts the kids... More

This is in a mall, so its small compared to large free-standing aquariums, but it contains many very nice displays and some hands-on tanks where the kids can touch urchins and starfish etc. The staff were very knowledgeable and willing to share information about the creatures. There is also a "walk-through" where the rays and sharks swim over you and... More

We loved this aquarium. It is small, but that is perfect for anyone with a toddler aged child. Our 2 year old loves fish, so it took us about an hour to get through the aquarium, and then he played in the little play space near the end for about 20 minutes. That being said, he got in free, and... More

We decided to make a day of the Aquarium and also do some Christmas shopping. We have two grandchildren under 5. We found the price to be a little high when we paid a little over $100.00 for four adults, a four year old and a one year old (admission was free for the one year old). This is a... More

Took a party of people here for our son's first birthday party. Honestly, could not have had it at a better place! We went with a group of about 16 people, kids ranging from 1 to 7 and adults and everyone loved it! Everything was at the perfect height to appeal to the kiddos whether they were walking around or...

We loved the aquarium. Its not really super big sized, but its really nice. Their tunnel is nice experience and so is when you get to touch star fish. Illuminated section of gelly fish is pretty cool. Horse fish section is also nice and makes awareness about not wearing those products. It would be pretty much fun for kids.
