  • Very nice aquarium with a lot to see. Interactive kid fish painting was the best for our little one. But even the parents will enjoy. The sea lions show was also nice, but nothing extraordinary. Parking is huge so you don't have to worry about it. We payed 6 EUR for a day parking. Be prepared for a trap-stop-shop at the end of the tour :D Next time I would avoid the "restaurant" at the very end of the tour. Their version of pizza was... 🤔 Well not my type. The crepes for 5 EUR would fit into my girlfriend's open hand 🖐️ and the Heineken beer is not my favorite... But overall a nice experience, especially the underwater tunnel. I would recommend.
  • Let's start with the positive. It is cheap and I think for small children or people who have no idea it is a nice way to look at some fish and have a 30 minutes attraction. But for us, who at least know a bit about aquaristik it was not nice at all. In nearly all the tanks there were only plastic corals, no real ones. So apart from fish you could see nothing. No beautiful corals in all shapes and colors, no crabs, no shrimp.. Just the usual variation of life in the sea was totally missing. Which is for us the beautiful part and necessary for the creatures to have at least a bit of natural way of living (even in a tank)
  • Great for the kids. So tidy and wonderful experience for kids across a wide range of age from 4-years old to teens even adults enjoyed it so much. Even though visited it last year but visited it again this year. Great outing for kids.
  • Great aquarium, but quite small. The price is lower than other Sea Life places; but that presumably due to reduced size. The whole tour is nice; although the decoration is quite unique (feel a bit like we're in the ancient Egypt). We saw the representation of the sea lions; which made it all way more interactive - without this the whole tour would be a bit light. Overall, nice place, great people; but in 1h30-2h you've done it all.
  • A small aquarium, which is reflected in the relatively cheap entry price, however, as a parent with two young children, i was surprised on arrival to see a security sign prohibiting pushchairs. I'm sure it makes it far easier for people to move around the venue, but i did notice various parents turning around on arrival due to not being able to carry their babies/young children. Our children were able to walk around and throughly enjoyed the aquarium, which you realistically will do in under an hour.
