  • Very nice aquarium, though smaller than we expected! Great displays! Great hsark and stingray exhibits. Great jelly fish tank! Well worth the cost!

  • I think the aquarium is large enough to be worth the price. There are multiple interactive exhibits. You can pay for extra things, but I think just the basic ticket was a satisfying experience. There were multiple large glass areas to view the animals. They also have two tigers which were fun to see! Don't go during peak hours because it can be rather crowded. Definitely great for children but adults will enjoy it too.
  • I have been to a few aquariums and I did really like this one. The place is very well kept and the tanks were clean. The place was a good size and it didn’t feel rushed when people were behind you. The exhibit where it showed you what it would be like in a flood was cool just stand back or you will get wet. You can see the otters up close swimming. The did have a tiger exhibit which I wished they were at the zoo with more space to roam. Really nice experience with the shark tanks. Would definitely recommend to come here.
