“Small but interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

Takes about an hour to see it all. Stingrays are the best exhibit. Nice gift shop too. Best part is the combined price with garden and zoo.

“Biopark bliss”

We get season tickets to the BioPark. That covers the Zoo, Aquarium, botanical garden, and Tingley beach. It's a great value.

“Very nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

I never been in other aquarium, so it was a very nice experience. The jellyfish is soooo nice! But the place is quite small, I was expecting more.

“Kids loved it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 18, 2014

My sons are 12 & 9. We went because my mother wanted to go.My kids loved the aquarium but after we paid we learned of the discount for the zoo.We went to get tickets for the zoo and we were given the price break on the combo ticket. We took the train to the zoo my 9 year old loved it. We didn't do all the zoo because my parents are elderly but we did see was good

“Small and except for feeding, not very interesting”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

Smaller children may like it better than teens. The shark tank was good and the feeding at the coral reef was interesting. I would only do it in conjunction with the botanical garden which was very well done.
