We heard great things about the aquarium and decided to go. They are open late which is good for visiting after dinner time. The ticket line was not set up well it is completely open to the elements and only two cashiers working. What takes so long in line is that they are trying to sell multiple Ripley's attraction tickets to every person. But that is expected in a tourist town. The aquarium was great to walk through and had the flow of foot traffic going all the same way which is nice. The shark area was great and so was the penguin area was great and fun since the kids can clinb through a tunnel and pop up in a enclosed glass viewer. The price however was $74 for 2 adults and a child.
