We purchased a park hopper ticket at Legoland in order to visit the Sea Life Aquarium. It is an educational, engaging place for kids. There are no shows, but lots of tanks with various varieties of sea life, a large aquarium with a walk-through tunnel and a touch tank. Naturalists are available to answer questions. It took about an hour to look at all of the displays. Our six and eight year-olds really enjoyed it and it added to the excitement of the day. I would recommend it as part of your visit to Legoland. If you have a large aquarium near your city, you may want to skip it, as it may be similar.

The Sea Life Aquarium at Legoland is my Grandkids favorite must do adventure. And sometimes we’ll just go there and not Legoland which you can do without the expense of the entire theme park. It’s an awesome learning experience for both the children and adults alike. It’s the perfect special reward for good behavior or a short outing before nap time. If you have small children or even young teens, make sure you go to Sea Life Aquarium. It’s a very family friendly place that will make a special memory!

First time to visit Sea Life Aquarium. I think we got around it in 15mins or so (expected time 45min). Fish are nice, well kept and tanks clean but not very inspiring route through with not very much obvious information on displays. you have to use touch screen monitors next to displays. would prefer quick reference pictures and info. Don't waste your money on extra tickets, but go if it is included in your legoland ticket and you have time.

I think my expectations were higher as I've been to the Sea Life Aquarium in Grapevine and thought it was fantastic. Being that this one was at Legoland, I was expecting to be awed. I was not - I think the Birch Aquarium is better and would recommend it over this one. So don't pay extra for this with your Legoland tickets, but stop by if it is included and you want an indoor break.

Well maintained. Friendly staff. The children could get up close, and even INSIDE of the sea life exhibits. It was worth purchasing the Legoland 2 day discounted passes that included the Aquarium.

Excellent place to cool off and relax. Very educational and colorful. Grandchildren really enjoy looking at sharks and the jellyfish especially.

We had a park hopper tickets, so were able to take a break from the rides and check out the aquarium. Its 2 levels and they have a cool scavenger hunt for the kiddos. That made it even more fun for them to stamp their paper at each station. Aquarium itself was what you would expect, we especially loved all the different views of the shark tank. The touchpool could either use some additional touchable creatures or maybe some rearranging. There were a few starfish but they were all out of reach for the kiddos. Staff were all friendly. We went in Oct, so it was not too busy. We went through the whole thing in a couple hours. There is a nice cafe at the end, freshly cooked food and great staff.

Hello megrnr thank you for this great review, I know it will be very helpful to our future guests. We are happy that you visited when the Resort was not too busy, this always makes for a nice day. The Ocean Journey Cafe is very popular with our guests and staff, I myself love the mac and cheese. We are delighted that you and your family had an enjoyable few hours at SEA LIFE and we do hope that you will visit with us again.

The night beach display is particularly fun. We wish we had something like it in our house! Try the turkey cranberry sandwich at the cafe. By far the best meal we had on our whole 4 day vacation.

The gate person let me in without a total package. The Aquarium was very good. Not worth the entrance if only visiting the Aq.
