Been coming here for years. A few years ago it was so dirty you couldn't hardly see through the glass. The musty/mold smell was overpowering. We were going to skip it this time. But it's cheaper to see 3 attractions than two. So we went...More

This is a wonderful family experience, seeing ocean life up close, and if you arrive at the right time you will get to see a diver showing an octopus and other animals through a window. The only bad part is, you have to go down...More

I would have loved to seen this attraction. I didn't like that you had to buy a ticket that made you see Ripley's and Wax Museum in order to see this attraction. The gift shop was nice and offer alot of things.

I only went because it was part of the package deal with Ripleys and the Wax museum. Waste of time. Just sad. The little portholes you look through are all green and slimy so you can’t see much. It’s cramped and smelly.

Can be visited as part of a package deal with the Wax Works and The Ripley's Believe It or Not. It hasn't changed a bit in the 40 years since my parents first took me there. Small, dark, and needs better lighting, serious modernizing and...More

This place is cramped. The animals are slow and lethargic.... it's basically like they are inprisoned. There is a gift shop with assorted knicks and plastic junk.

This place made me sad! The old sturgeon and several other fish have blunted nose's from running into the tank walls. We bought tickets along with Ripley's and the Waxworks, but I wouldn't return or recommend this attraction to anyone. These sad fish should be...More

You can buy your 3-way pass at any of the three sites. I don’t remember the cost, but you should be able to find it online.
