  • Love this aquarium! The staff was beyond great. The gentleman giving the informative lectures on the animals and habitats (sorry I didn't get your name) went beyond and took out the rat snake to let us touch, learn and interact with it made the experience even better for us. He said if he had more time he would have taken out the Boa Constrictor Spaghetti for us. He was so kind! The nice man in the Cafe taking orders and delivering to tables with a positive attitude and a smile 😃. We had a beautiful day. Thank you to the entire amazing staff!
  • IT WAS A GREAT TIME! I ONLY RATED IT 4 STARS BECAUSE IT IS A LITTLE PRICEY! 3 PEOPLE IS AROUND $120. PARKING IS $12 CASH ONLY! BUT OTHERWISE THE WHOLE EXPERIENCE WAS GREAT! WOULD DEFINITELY RECOMMEND & I'M GOING BACK! JUST WITH MORE MONEY! 🤣
