“Water creatures I've never seen before”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

On a hot day, in places here it is somewhere to cool down, but in others it's very hot. But generally in the water tunnel where you walk through the water with every kind of swimming creature all around you is amazing.

“Waste of money”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2012

This is an expensive 45 minutes.
For close to $40 you expect a little more for your buck.
The penguins are lovely but this is the highlight of the attraction.
The Aquarium feels like it's ready for a complete overhaul. There is an overwhelming smell of dirty carpet as you walk around.
You can see all attractions within the Aquarium in less that 45 minutes. I would advise you spend your money elsewhere.
