“It's not bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2013

It's not a bad place, kids will love it, although it needs some maintenance. There is a huge collection of animals. you can find pieces of information here and there, not always, it's a shame.

“Wonderful Experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 31, 2013

Got an opportunity to view the underwater life at Underwater World. We were amazed by the various species of fish at Underwater World. You would require around 90 mins to explore Underwater World.

“Counter staff a bit rude.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

Ill mannered staff managing just 2 counters at one time (1 for group and individual), should have more staff n more counters or at least quicker in processing the tickets. RM28 for Malaysian Adult & RM18 for child. A quick 20 minutes will get you through the place, not as great and big as Sentosa aquarium.

“Just Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

This place is small with limited underwater species. The entrance fee is surprisingly expensive. So if you're not really into underwater thing, you will not regret if you just skip this place. However, this place is conjuction with Coco Valley & Zon Shoping Mall where you could find various liquor & chocolates.

“Nothing Great to see with such kind of entry fee”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 22, 2013

I didn't find it very interesting .May be as a child it could have been more fun with so many type of sea creatures.The only thing i liked was so many Penguins in the enclosure.
It was not maintained as per expectations you have after paying huge entry fee.
You can give it a miss and spend your evening or, afternoon on Cenang beach.
