Good mix of animals. A little tired. Oh, and don't go on a Friday; too many school buses filled with screaming children.

We weren't sure we really wanted to go in - a young couple leaving saw us reconsidering and promptly said "Go, it's great!" And we loved it! It's a unique animal experience! Few animals in their "habitat" but you feel like you're in they're world....More

Great way to see numerous habitats and the flora and fauna to be found there in a quick stroll through the biodome. Loved the capybaras and the puffins the best, and could sit watching the sea birds diving in the underwater viewing tank for ages.

The reviews for Biodome are kind of all over the place, and having been there now, I can understand why. It is, as some have pointed out, a cleverly re-purposed building . . . but if you're expecting a full-blown zoo/scientific exhibit, it falls short....More
