“High cost of fish!”
Reviewed June 14, 2014 via mobile

A bit pricey considering other things to do in that price range. Takes no more than 2 hours to do the entire venue. Great selection on fish and sea creatures. Staff could be more knowledgeable and expect wait times.

“Very nice”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

Came with family on a regular weekday while we are visiting Toronto. Lots of small children. Amazing collection of different types of fishes. Also with amazing visual effect and lighting with the jellyfish tank. Ticket price is 29.95CAD for adult which i feel it is a bit pricey, however, after we finished, we feels that it is worth it. I would return anytime. This is one of the nicest aquarium i have visited around the world.

“Visually Beautiful Spectacle of Underwater Species - A Whole Other World!”
Reviewed June 13, 2014

The Ripley's Aquarium in Toronto is a memorable attraction to see. The trip can be as educational as you want it to be, depending on how slowly you tour the attraction. Of course, with small children, your time to stop and read information signs and facts about all the species is limited, but it is just as entertaining visually, for everyone. If you do happen to be with older kids or adults who enjoy reading stuff, and studying movements of the different stages of jellyfish, for example, it is quite fascinating & educational. There is no time limit to your stay. Once you're in, take it all in! Take money for parking downtown (that's a drag, and you might have to walk a bit to get there once you park) The best tip we got was to buy our tickets on-line, which we did. It saved us from having to wait in a long line-up. During a busy season (ie. March Break), get your tickets early. We were a group of 4 and we took about 2 hours to see what we wanted, and left satisfied.

Definitely a place to visit. Children will love it for sure.
My advise, don't try to buy your tickets on the net, it will say that it's full, go there when it opens and you'll be able to get tickets for the same day. One reproach: we are in Canada, where there are 2 official languages but you'll only read informations in English...

“Beautiful displays”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Great attraction. The sound and lighting really help the experience. The small cafeteria section is a bit of a problem, given that you are not permitted to bring your own in, but other than that, great.
