8year old loved hands on section. 2yr old liked the sting ray section. Got bored after a while at the other sections. Enjoyed shark tunnel but all in all an okay way to fill a couple of hours in the rain but not much more. Was part of a pass not sure would be value on its own.

It... More

Definitely worth visiting on a rainy day. Get the 'one ticket' to save money on the most popular attractions.
