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.

My family normally visits an aquarium in each tourist place we visit and this one was nothing fabulous to write home about. The walk through tank was probably the best exhibit. Needs more hands on, only had touch a starfish exhibit for actual touching. The one in Jenks OK is still my favorite with touching of sting rays, bull sharks... More

This is a very good aquarium for a “mall” aquarium. They have done a good job of making it feel like it was not converted from something else (I’m not sure if it was or not). They have the standard set of aquarium fish/crustaceans/turtles. This facility is also a rescue location and they have a couple of permanent sea turtles... More

This was a nice small one, little high price for it's size. They do give you a passport book and you stamp it as you go through.

The hustle and bustle of the mall feels miles away when you enter this aquarium. We have been to bigger and yes better aquariums, but if you are looking to relax and enjoy an hour or so this is the place. Our kids love answering the questions a long the way and earning a (plastic) gold medal at the end.... More

Went with my family and really was pleasantly surprised by the effective use of space and design elements for this smaller aquarium. The cost seems a bit high if you run through the attraction and don't take in all they have to offer, so take your time and learn something!

It's in the mall and it's really nice, it's not bad. My only complaint is it just not real big. It doesn't take very long to walk. A few domes built-in to tanks to peak into tanks my daughter liked that otherwise there is a play area at the exit. I rate this average as us not bad, just not... More

This aquarium isn't very large but it's very nice and the space is used very efficiently so it feels a lot larger than it is. It is a great set up for toddlers. There are plenty of viewing areas designed for small kids. Our daughter loves it.

Traveled with my 9yr and 6 yr. We enjoyed the aquarium. They enjoy and love to learn about sea life and this aquarium was nice and small with lots of hands on education. It does cost a bit more to see the behind the scene but we enjoyed it. Our tour guide was very knowledgable and sweet. Would go again!

Don't make the same mistake we made: buy your tickets in advance at the mall kiosk or online so you can skip the longer line! We arrived shortly after they opened on a Sunday morning (Labor Day weekend). Lines were super long, and it didn't help that several customers had many questions for the cashiers, further slowing down the admission... More
