Really enjoyed my time here. Would love to come back again with my nieces. Bought tickets online, selected time and had them on my phone quickly. Parking wasn't bad for a Saturday afternoon. It was busy but the line to get in moved quickly. Aquarium wasn't as big as I thought but it was still very enjoyable. We went through it in about 2 and a half hours at a nice easy pace. Aquarium was clean, exhibits were nice and they had cool things to see. It was cool touching the stingrays, sharks, starfish, horseshoe crabs and other things. Nice exhibits for the kids. Did not try to food but they had 2-3 places to eat and plenty of room to sit at. Either outside or inside. Gift shop was nice as well that leads to the exit. Pay for parking machine gives out token that you give on your way out. It costs $10 for parking.
We love this place. The staff are friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The animals are so fun to see. The play area is a perfect halfway spot for my kids to burn off some energy. We love the different touch tanks, especially the sting rays and anemones. The shows are interesting and fun for a variety of ages. We usually bring our own food, so I can't speak to that. We enjoyed it so much, we even got an annual membership. It's not really an all day thing, but it's a good couple of hours.
