“Great Time!”
Reviewed May 21, 2013

Beautiful and easy to get there, you can walk in from Lego Land. You will see a little video first for safety reasons. Pictures can be taken except for the ones noted. Much hands-on as well.

“Aquarium from a child's perspective”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

As loyal Sea World visitors, I did not expect much. We were pleasantly surprised and impressed at the design of this aquarium. Many of the displays are at a child's eye-level and adults can look down upon the tanks. Better than a child having to look up toward a large tank to view the fish. My six-year old loved the huge crab and large lobster. Everything looked healthy - which is so nice to see! Plan on spending at least one hour here.

“Some interesting things to see - next door to Legoland”
Reviewed May 14, 2013

There were some interesting fish to see, especially the sharks. The flow of traffic was good, and it was apparent the way you were to go to get to the next exhibit. Nothing really stood out as phenomenal, but the kids I was with had a good time, and considering it was the end of a day after Legoland, it was a nice stroll through some interesting aquatics. Definitely not enough stuff for an entire day, but maybe the better part of an afternoon.

“A nice little aquarium”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

It's not big and it doesn't take long to get through, but little aquarium (connected to the Legoland theme park) is a well run aquarium with some fun things to see. Our kids especially liked the demonstration where a scuba diver spoke to a group through a speaker and the kids could ask him question while he was underwater. It only took us an hour and a half to get through the aquarium, but we enjoyed it. Don't plan on turning this stop into much more or you're have spare time on your hands. It's a great add-on to a Legoland weekend. Serious adult aquarium goers might find it below standard, but it's perfect for the kids.

Comes with the entrance of legoland, cute that is it.
It is in a way unfair to evaluate this aquarium when we go to the Monterey aquarium or the academy of science in the golden gate park, but for what it is suppose to be, it is nice, grand kids liked it
