“Neat, but expensive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2013

Ok, this may not be Shedd Aquarium, but its still a worthwhile attraction. The designers did a great job of finding ways to make the exhibits very "kid friendly." Many of the tanks are designed for kids to crawl into or otherwise participate in. The staff are friendly and informative, but firm about respecting the animals (something I applaud). One tank is designed for patrons to gently touch starfish and other creatures. The tour may feel a bit short considering the cost (nearly $60 for family of 3), but the exhibits are very well done and highly interactive.

“Was expecting more”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

The exhibits are great. There just wasn't enough for the money and the wait. Hopefully there will be some expansion as time goes by.

“Kids liked it alot more than Lego Discovery next door”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2013

I did not go to this but my 2 kids did. They thought it was nothing special until going next door to the Lego place THEN it moved up on the fun list. What kids said is this would be good if you had never been to real aquarium like Shedd Aquarium or even the small one at Omaha Zoo

“Wonderful time!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2013

We went New Year's Day and it was not crowded at all and was lots of fun for adults and kids. We will go again some time soon. They were very informative on all the sea life which made it very interesting.
