This is a nice aquarium with several unique features that would be good for parents pushing kids in strollers, pre-school kids, taking school-aged friends for a fun day, and it might even be tolerable for teens. Meanwhile, as a low-pressure date for young couples, it's...More

We spent just an hour there! It is clean, educational, for kids and adults! It’s good but not great. Get the online pass for Legoland and the aquarium for $29.99 per person and I think it’s a better deal. Good luck with finding a table...More
