  • The VR animations make the ticket price worthwhile. Some interesting exhibits but more geared towards kids. If you have time it's a nice, spacious place to spend 1-2 hours, otherwise it's not a must.....  more »

  • Some great activities such as 5d movies and virtual reality surfing and diving amongst sharks. A bit of a wait though , even if not really packed. A good day out on a raining day.
  • This museum seems well-suited for people with families or for the young at heart. There are lots of interactive displays for all. They even have a 4d theater and virtual reality surfing. For me, it was the first time I've even worn VR goggles, and it was well worth the existence. Plus, you can get a package rate for Ocean City and the Aquarium which would make for a really fun weekend trip.
  • Amazing VR experiences! really enjoyed the visit and the kids loved it too!
  • If you're looking for a bowl to skate, it's pretty bad. The bowl is tilted and the coping is pretty bad. You could try to drop in on the walls, but it's really sketchy regarding the rocks Pretty cool visual spot though.
  • Fun place, it's good to take kids there, adults could like some of the activities there. The staff speaks lots of languages and very friendly. They have very interesting 3D film about nature, and other augmented reality games
