We enjoyed all the many entertainment options here. Started in the aquarium and saw lots of animals. Then jumped over to the forest which walked us though a jungle full of trees, flowers, and birds with an occasional monkey. Next we relaxed with drinks on...More

As time was limited only managed to do the aquarium but well worth a visit. If you time it right you can watch the penguins and seals being feed. Staff are friendly and helpful.

The rain forest and the aquarium we’re both worth going to. They are experiential, well put together and educational. People of all ages including young children and seniors can enjoy these exhibits.

We were pleasantly surprised by this aquarium in Galveston, Tx. The exhibits are great - each "window" into the tank was a new experience. The tanks are really cool and enjoyable. Especially enjoyed the jelly fish exhibit. Wow!

We really enjoyed the Bird sanctuary. Very interesting and beautiful place to visit. We also used the Paddle Boat coupon to sight see around the bay.

Expensive but worth the experience. We enjoyed both the rain forest and aquarium. Smaller than the big sea world attraction but full of sea life and rainforest birds and animals. Good, informative signage. Don’t miss the Komodo dragons!

As an aquarium connoisseur, I would give this one a solid 7 out of 10. It had an unusual lay out, a nice mix of fish, penguins, sea lions, and was well maintained.

Easily. It depends on how much time you spend at each pyramid, but if you arrive early it should be no problem!
