  • Lots of great displays and information. We really enjoyed our time. Great variety of animals for a smaller exhibit. We have a 10 year old boy and only spent about 45 minutes total. So $85 for that...  more »

  • Little pricy but the kids really enjoyed it. Was a good family activity away from gambling & smoke. We were there for over an hour.
  • Very fun and awesome to see all the sharks and fish! Would love to go back after everything is opened.
