We wanted to do something to celebrate New Year's Eve and we picked this event. It was great! The cost was $125 per couple which included hats and noise makers, heavy hors d'oeuvres, a keepsake photo, and a champagne toast at midnight. There was a band in one area and a DJ in another area. Along with all that, you had the whole aquarium to browse through. They did not scrimp on the food. Everything from roast beef to shrimp to chicken fingers and then plentiful desserts. And it was always being refilled. It wasn't like there was a certain amount and once that was gone that's all there was. The band was really good, there were 7 band members. We went out on the balcony at midnight to see the city's fireworks and they even had heaters out there for us. It is open to children also (I think they had their own room with their own party for part of the evening) and they were never a bother to the other adults. There was plenty of staff available who kept the dishes cleared and the food coming. Several cash bars in different areas where we paid $5 for a mixed drink. Not bad. We plan to go again next year!
