“Waste of money and time”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014 via mobile

We were there after reading tripadvisor's opinions and were really disappointed. Maybe for kids it would be interesting but as adulds we didn't enjoy at all and for sure it's not worth 50 RM/person. We also bare in mind that we're divers and maybe thatsway coudn't be objective...but anyway if you've been in zoo once in a lifetime - that is enough.

“Average”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2014

This is my first time visiting aquarium in Malaysia. I feel that it is pretty average. I managed to watch the piranha feeding show at 4pm - quite an eyeopener. Those guys can really snap up the food.

Hello tunawhiskas
Thanks for visiting us and for taking the time to review us. Did you know that we are the one and only organisation in Malaysia that is permitted to exhibit piranhas?

Hi FaizalFederations
Thanks for choosing to visit us. We’re glad to hear that you had a good visit. However we would like to highlight that we do not have beavers, quite likely it was our Asian small clawed otters that you saw.

“AMAZING!!! Massive walk through tank with sharks :)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2014

I love fish anyway (my mum used to work in an Aquarium) but this is truly the best aquarium I have seen in a long long time.
There are fascinating sections about the life sequence of a frog.
There are tarantulas, and otters, and snakes, and lobsters of all sizes. They feed the fish regularly and do a nice talk through while they do it, explaining what's happening and why.
They are really pro shark there to which is great.
And the best bit was walking through the walk through tunnel which went on for AGES and was AMAZING with all kinds of sharks, fish, and well, everything!!
I really enjoyed it here!!

“Average size but interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2014

Should watch for feeding time. We lost it because my son spent too much time in Petrosains, but he enjoyed the touching stage. Next time we will register a night sleep with shark here, sounds very exciting.
