I visited yesterday for the first time since the renovation. The placement of the cafeteria, snack stands and gift shops was a mild annoyance. Eventually my kids got used to hearing 'No' when asking if they could buy something. We paid the extra $5 per ticket for the SpongeBob 4D experience which turned into a 5 minute cartoon in 3D. For the extra $30 we spent, it was not nearly worth it, but how can we say not to a 3 year old when there is a 'Spongebob RIDE' . Extremely disappointing.
The new building and shark tunnel is very impressive. The Touch-a Shark exhibit was closed for renovation. The older building still had the atmosphere of walking through a pet shop looking at tanks of fish on the wall.
Overall impression was that I left feeling a bit taken by the $120 we paid to get in. It was good for 3 hours of entertainment, but my kids would have had just as much fun climbing in the neighborhood playground.
