“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2014

Nice time spent watching sharks within Shark cave and tunel. Birds were flying all over the place. It is located within campona shopping centre so You can do Your shopping afterwards or Leave Your wife in jewelery store. Kids will welcome to feed the fish. (100huf). As it is part of shopping park no problém to park for free.

“Sharks!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

Go with Kids! Overall I had a better impression and "time" compared to the Zoo. The tunnel with sharks and manta rays is great, overall there is a lot of nice "fish" to see. They even have a croc.

“A fun couple of hours with some unusual animals”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2014

We went to the Tropicarium not sure what to expect having read the mixed reviews on Tripadvisor. We really enjoyed it, timing our visit for the 3pm shark feeding on a Thursday. It was incredible to see two divers hand feeding sharks and all the other fish going into a frenzy around them! The only downside with this timing was how busy it was, with big groups of children. However we took our time going around and by 4pm it was almost empty. Some of the more unusual animals were well worth seeing - eg the poison arrow frogs, chameleon and endangered tamarin monkeys. The fish tanks ranged from the fairly ordinary looking to the fantastically colourful, with coral and invertebrates as well as fish. My daughter really enjoyed petting the sting rays too. Altogether a good visit, and an interesting trip by bus and tram through the southern suburbs which we wouldn't otherwise have seen (communist era blocks and industry along the way!). Probably a bit expensive for what it is, but the animals did seem well cared-for.
