I wasn't expecting much as this is in a mall...but it was really a nice place. It's well maintained, the exhibits are well done and it's got some fun extras. We did the questions throughout. They have "Fin Facts" on walls all throughout the aquarium. As you go through, you can answer questions based on these facts and get a prize at the gift shop for answering them all right. It really added a sense of fun for our 8 year old, and got him to actually read the information. There is some new shark technology and little viewing area that are really cool. The petting tank is small, but a great addition to any aquarium. The staff were extreamly friendly. I say, if you like aquariums and have younger kids, it's worth it - but find one of hte coupons, first. If you've been to the Aquarium of the Americas or the like and have those expectations, then this is not for you.
