Sea life is a place you don't want to miss. Took some of my friends there for my birthday and we all really enjoyed it! It beats going to the dallas world aquarium if you don't want to drive all that way. No matter if you are young or old, this is a must see for everyone! Oh don't forget... More

I've been to some of the best aquariums like Monterrey Bay and Aquarium of the Americas, and I feel this stacks up quite nicely to them, although it is a bit smaller than them, it is well designed. The quiz for the kids is good and my son enjoyed it. The interactive exhibits on the top floor where you can... More

My husband and I took our three little granddaughters there today and we all enjoyed the aquarium very much. We were really impressed how much work went into this place to make it kid friendly . A lot of the displays are at kids eye level so they don't have to strain to see the exhibits. It's truly amazing to... More

Took my kids and their friends when octonauts theme was going on. We arrived 30 minutes before the character showing but missed it due to long lines. Do take kids treasure hunt map and attend the guided talks as that does add value. It is smaller in comparison to other sealife places but will spend close to 2 hours on... More

I wasn't expecting much as this is in a mall...but it was really a nice place. It's well maintained, the exhibits are well done and it's got some fun extras. We did the questions throughout. They have "Fin Facts" on walls all throughout the aquarium. As you go through, you can answer questions based on these facts and get a... More

Tiny place in a mall, definitely not worth the price or drive out to see unless you plan on doing some shopping too. If you read every plaque in here and spend a minute to minute and half at each aquarium you might make it last 45mins.....but that is stretching it. The map makes the place look huge, but it... More

My husband and I are a couple of big kids so we attend amusement parks without kids. =D We both really enjoyed the aquarium. The music they play is very relaxing. The exhibits are well lit and displayed. The staff is knowledgable and friendly. The 360 view in the shark encounter is pretty cool. The floor has a glass bottom... More

Maybe I'm a bit spoiled with my aquarium visits other places, but I was highly disappointed with this experience and don't understand the high reviews. I'm glad we (my 9-year-old and I) went, but for the price I was honestly hoping it would be more interactive. I did take advantage of the online price, but the combo option to include... More
