“Rainy day trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2013 via mobile

We love the aquarium! I have a 3 yer old boy and its the perfect size for him. It holds his attention the entire time and he always learns something new. We love the glass tunnel where you can see the sharks swimming above and he gets a kick touching the starfish. I have an infant, too and we prefer to leave the stroller. There are just a few stairs but you can use an elevator. It just gets a little snug with a stroller.

“Worth the visit if your doing Lego Land”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2012

It's a little small, but worth going in if your doing a multi day Lego Land trip. The inside flows great and the kids get to touch and feel some of the animal's. Display's are really good and you see some animal's you don't get to see in other Aqurium's, but you can make it through the place in under an hour total. The last stop is in the cafe, which is a little pricey, so I would suggest leaving and driving down the street for lunch

“Not worth the stand alone price but worth it as part of Legoland packages.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

We got tickets as part of legoland and it was a nice way to end the walking of legoland. I would not make a trip to see it or go back, or pay the full price, but overall it was a nice experience for the kids.

“Great Aquarium if you don't get out much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2012

Since I live here in Carlsbad, I thought I would take a peek at this latest addition to Legoland. It wasn't bad, but so small compared to the other area aquariums. There is the Scripps aquarium, SeaWorld, and Aquarium of the Pacific near by. In price comparison, the other choices are better bang for your buck.
