“Wow - still love this place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 20, 2012

The dolphin show is really worth the wait and the wet and wild section is designed for all ages. there are small pools for the little kids as well as a separate section so that they feel safe and secure. Food is available in the park and locker facilities as well. watch for peak times as it can get crazy

“nice_fish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

Good layout. Great for the family. Good variety of fish and other sea life. Glass for viewing is a nice size. Great to combine this with the ushaka wetnwild and get you out the sun on a hot day.

“Incredible and interesting exhibits and shows”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

My review is only for the aquarium, as I didn't go to Wet n Wild: I absolutely loved my trip around Ushaka. We caught the dolphin show and the seal show, and both were fun interesting - though obviously aimed at kids - though the story behind the seal show was particularly good. The environment of Ushaka and the planning that went into it are staggering - I loved the use of the old boat to house the exhibits, and this attention to detail was apparent at every stage. As well as smaller tanks with really interesting, rare and unusual fish, there are colossal tanks with rays, sharks, and absolutely giant fish. It should appeal to anyone with a curious mind, from kids to pensioners.
