Before you go, call and make sure that nobody has reserved the Aquarium portion for a special event during the time you plan to be there. If they have, you will not get to see it. We got hosed by such a scenario when we went, not having any idea that it was even an option for the place to be rented out and closed to the public. Only got to see the stingray exhibit, which is separate from the main aquarium, and then rode some of the rides outside. Parking and rides set our family of three back about $50. Waits were long, but it was the middle of summer.
