“Very popular attraction.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

We went on a Thursday and it was crowded. One thing I did not enjoy was one area became too crowded to see anything. The other areas seemed to flow better. Shark tank excellent. Petting/touch areas were enjoyable. Nice variety. Took a little over 2 hours to see. Geared more toward families with young children.

“Some good, some bad”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

We had mixed feelings about the aquarium. The actual fish tanks were cool. You can walk under some parts & there was a big variety of sea creatures to see. However, the price was high & it was crowded. It was also pretty small. The interactive areas were so packed that it was hard to get to the actual exhibit. I don't think I would go back unless I could get a better deal.

“Enjoyable family afternoon”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2014

We visited with our 5 and 7 year old girls and their grandmother. It was an enjoyable 90 minutes. Lots of exhibits and kids really enjoyed hands on and interactive exhibits. The large aquarium with the people mover was a big hit, as was the sea ray tank.

“Must see”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2014

But, when you have seen one great aquarium, you have seen them all - fish, sharks, people trying to take pictures through glass, few places to sit, strange salt water creatures.
