“Wonderful time!!”
Reviewed January 8, 2013

We went New Year's Day and it was not crowded at all and was lots of fun for adults and kids. We will go again some time soon. They were very informative on all the sea life which made it very interesting.

“Disappointing compared to other Aquariums.”
Reviewed January 7, 2013

Most of the exhibits seemed the same. The touch tank was small with not a very big variety of things you could touch. There was no way for small kids to view a lot of the exhibits if they are in a stroller and they could not reach the touch tank even when out of the stroller. The tunnels and domes were fun for the kids, but it seemed to all be the same throughout. We did purchase the discount tickets online, which I am glad we did. The downfall was that you had to give a 1 hour time frame in which you would arrive. Living out of town, that was inconvient. My teenager and little kids liked it, but I was not impressed.

“Not worth the price”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

We were excited to take our 2 children to Sea Life, but after 45 minutes we were done. $43.00 for 3 plus 1 freebie is a little pricy for what they have here.

Wont be coming back

“Awesome aquarium. Great for kids.”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

I've been to a few aquariums around the US and this one is my favorite. Not because it has the most variety of sealife but because it was very interactive, educational and fun for our kids. The exhibits are really well laid out and the tunnels and domes that cut through the actual exhibits were very cool! It lets you and the kids get up close to the sealife in the exhibits. A lot of fun!

“Dont waste your time”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

You spend about $20/person. We spent about a half hour in there. I guess the thing to do at aquariums these days is to put as many fish from Finding Nemo as you can in the tanks. You could touch Starfish. There werent really any shows or demonstrations. They had a couple small sharks. I was not impressed with the Aquarium in Chicago either, but it beat the hell out of this one.
