What a surprise this aquarium was! From the outside look of it, we almost bypassed this attractions but so glad we didn't. Somewhat pricey at 17/adults. There is one of the largest and best shark tanks we have been too. You walk through it, beside it, around it - get to see from every angle! You can pay $115 to be able to swim in the shark tank if you dare.... Overall, was sort of a lot of walking, could be a problem for small children or elderly. The 4D theater was disappointing - bad digital animation and very short. Also, it is somewhat scary for smaller children - they don't really warn you and there were a lot of frightened children. Would have skipped it and the extra $2 if we had known. The touch tank and seals/penguins were disappointing as well. Lots of variety in the regular aquarium sections, not just regular fish but an Amazon waterfall, frogs, jellyfish, etc. Overall it was fun and I think most families will enjoy it.
