Too much incentive to spend loads of money, & no incentive to educating humans to leave things in the sea where they should be...shame for those sharks...they look depressed, & so do the staff...

Me, wife and our two year old went here for the day. Spent a good three hours visiting. True it's not very cheap but we thought it was good value for money. The big fishing feeding was really fun. The only criticism we have is that children are charged according to their height (below I think 90cm is free, above is charged); height must decide how much you enjoy an attraction. We would visit here again.

Went here today, we had intended to visit the zoo but given the rain decided to try here, first shock came with the price, £52 for a family of 4, this was over a tenner more than Chester Zoo! The place itself is ok, it looks tired in places but the kids enjoyed it but in reality there is only an hour's entertainment here, expensive at this price.

My first visit to an aquarium. I did enjoy it and there was enough to keep us going for a couple of hours. The only problem was the cost of £52 for a family of 4!

Kids love it here. They love that you can put your hands in some of the water tanks and touch the fish/stingrays. Parking is on site and free. The shop is a little expensive but i suppose this is common practise for these places.
