SEA LIFE Oberhausen, Oberhausen

2.3
#4 of 11 in Things to do in Oberhausen
A home for injured seals and other endangered sea life, marine sanctuary SEA LIFE Oberhausen is open to the public. During peak hours, the aquarium allows only 30 visitors at a time into each viewing area, so visit right at opening to avoid these crowds. All the tanks have inside viewing areas that make a great escape from chilly, rainy weather. Book a ticket online to save time at the door so you can head straight to the seals, turtles, and penguins. A visit to SEA LIFE Oberhausen represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Oberhausen travel itinerary maker to plot your vacation.

    We had hoped for something more from the visit. After 40 minutes, we were already through. Some very interesting sea creatures are in any case. I think the entry of nearly €20 for this slightly too expensive.

    3 cards ordered online - and paid. As we then (with a three year olds) to the prescribed (!) Hour on the spot were, wait 90 minutes. The aforementioned signs above the end of the queue. That there are such signs shows that it is the order of the day. We had not selected the Express card because it had been still 18 euros extra. Because it was raining lightly and I think generally that olds should wait not 90 minutes in line, we came back two hours later. The same image. We have then dispenses with the visit and shot the money in the wind. Although, my demand for sea life brought a half-hearted apology, but no concessions. Outrageously, I find it also generally that for children from the age of three the same entrance fee is levied as adults.

    I what there a while ago with my family, and i what very impressed of what i have saw in this town. They have plenty of things to visit in a short distance, and 1 of them is sea life. Its very easy to places think there are plenty park it near by, the cost is affordable. Now about the sea life: the waiting time in weekend its a little bit long (but if you buy the tickets online, is cheaper and you dont have to wait at all), inside is very well structured, its amazing for kids to see the underworld with plenty fish species. A full tour it will take about on hour.

  • Great displays of marine life. The large tank is awesome. A fantastic day out for kids. As a diver and environmentalist I was happy to see the good work that the sea life Centre does. I went in the morning to avoid the queues. If you're in the area worth a visit. We must save the oceans!
  • Okay for families with small kids, unfortunately not a big variety of species, quite small tanks, small corridors and very crowded. Not worth the money.
  • The most disappointing aquarium I've ever been to. Very few species, small tanks with poor light, tacky bad quality decorations and extremely small corridors so that it always feels overcrowded even when it's not too many people there. And too expensive for this level of entertainment.
  • Too small for one "Sea" world, not extremely lots of fishes, narrow corridors, overcrowded especially with children from which most of those "few" inhabitants of Sea world can't see. Noisy, not a relaxed Sea world tour....
  • Great place to visit with kids.
