Took my granddaughter here. Little pricey but the animals are very well cared for. Got to pet and feed all kinds of animals and fish. They have many more animals than a regular aquarium. It’s like a zoo too. Huge arcade inside as well. Great place to spend an afternoon. Loved it

It’s Texas...and I’ve been to some of the best aquariums in the world. I’m reviewing this location on its own merits - not comparing it to “everywhere else”. My grandchildren had such a great time! All of the touch tanks are amazing. When we finally convinced one to touch a stingray, it was tough to drag him away. The carp were a huge hit too. I loved the salt water tanks. Having birds and other little creatures was an added bonus we didn’t expect. Oh...and I almost forgot about the lemurs! Fun afternoon.

The place is a glorfied petting zoo. At 17.95 a person it is wayy too small for the cost of it. Also, to actually pet any of the animals it costs tokens to pet the animals as well. Btw it costs 20 tokens to hold a sloth. 1 token is 3.00.

I do no recommend this Aquarium. We drove about 3 hours from Mexico only to see the Octopus they promote in their website, but when we arrived they staff at the aquarium said they don't have an octopus anymore! (still do in the webpage, even after I complained this weekend. In their webpage in Facebook they don't mention anything about not having an octopus anymore)I feel this is very dishonest publicity , our kids were very sad and disappointed. But we were already there, so we enter. Tickets are expensive (18 adults and 13 kids), considering the pretty bad, small aquarium this is. Is has a bunch of different animals (rabbits, lemurs, lizards...) not related to an aquarium, but the problem was they were in very small cages (seem well care, but not in the correct facilities). The fish in display were ok (a lot of koi fish, that you can see anywhere). So, not really impressed of this Aquarium, if you really want to go, have a promotion code or discount, do not waste you money here.

Went here with my 2 sons, ages 20 and 29, and we all had a good time. The boys enjoyed feeding the goldfish. The turtle was entertaining 😉. It was a great way to escape the heat for a couple of hours
