The aquarium is a great place to see, but it cost our family $62.50 ($2.50 for a parking token to get out of the lot) and we completed the visit within 1.5 hours on a Tuesday afternoon. We wanted to see the Dolphin show, and happened to show up an hour beforehand & it was already packed (they recommended showing up 20 minutes before the show for the "best seating"). We stood in the back, and had people stuffed all around us. The show lasted 15 minutes and it was entertaining, but they should consider offering it more than a few times a day. Be sure to park under the bridge, other parking is $5.00. Parking fee is not an option by the way.
