We visited the sealife centre and overall it was disappointing. We took our grandson who is facinated by sharks but even he didnt enjoy it. We didnt queue for long to get in as we prebooked tickets(which were still expensive). The initial touch and feel rock pool was surrounded by older kids so our 4yo grandson couldnt get in and touch them

walking through and some of the attractions/displays were a bit drab. When we finally got to the under the sea walk with the sharks above us the water was cloudy and if they werent close to the glass you could hardly see them let alone photograph them.

maybe the staff should spend more time cleaning the glass of the displays and trying to sort the displays out than chatting to each other.

very disappointing. Wont be going there again

A lovely trip here with my five year old granddaughter, she particularly liked the interactive area where she was able to handle the starfish and crabs. Plenty of staff on hand to give information and all really friendly and cheerful. Only reason I didn't rate this a five was because there was a game of golf included in the price but as there was nobody at the kiosk so we ended up leaving without having this.

The tanks and displays are excellent. The fish seem well cared for and the displays are well thought-out. Our children were very impressed by all of the animals, especially the chameleon and the turtles in the last room (very lively).

We arrived shortly before the sharks were due to be fed and headed into the shark gallery. But it seemed everyone else was there, the gallery was very hot and over-crowded, so much so that it became unsafe and we left without seeing the sharks have dinner. Better co-ordination of the guests, so that not everyone is crammed in one place, would be required.

The underwater tunnel is spectacular, the giant crab is amazing.

The exit via lots of stairs and an adventure golf gallery also detract from the experience. It is not clear that the main exit does not have a lift until you get to it.

£56 pounds for a family of four, Blackpool is expensive to visit so save money and don't go here as we did the whole tour in 35 minutes I would neither recommend or visit this attraction again
