  • Great location to take kids and enjoy an aquarium. There are several themes and the shark tank is very interesting. There is a moving conveyor to move you through the tanks. The sharks are also visible overhead for s really unique experience. It also possible to view the shark tank from the glass bottomed boat for an additional charge. There are shows with mermaids on the stingrays tank. Great gift shop and a concession area. It's a little pricey but the kids will absolutely love it. The ticket is good for all day. There is usually a discount coupon available in one of the coupon books from the area that will save around $3. I would definitely recommend this place. There are other great attraction and shopping directly in the area.
  • Was very impressed with the level of professionalism this particular aquarium displayed!! Staff was very nice and knowledgeable about all the animals on sight. Price for 2 people to get in was around 60.00. Be aware of all the extras they try to get you to do for instance to go through shark tunnel was part of the admittance fee but if you want to view sharks from above they want to charge you a extra almost 30.00 I thought that was excessive!! Other then that was a great place to go.
