  • We had so much fun at the aquarium and loved getting to feed the tortoise and birds! A bit of an odd location along along a strip of stores and slightly smaller than some other aquariums, but no less ...  more »

  • So kind of strange to pull up to an aquarium in a strip mall. Overall through, this aquarium takes good care of its animals, and the staff are genuinely friendly, knowledgeable, and care about the ani...  more »

  • This place is really fun as they allow you to interact with all their exhibits. Most aquariums I've been to only have 1 or 2 interactive exhibits. I saw and actually MET a Giant Octopus for the first time here and he's an amazing animal! The aquarium is in an unlikely location - in a shopping center and looks more like a pet store. But don't let looks fool you!! Give them a visit you won't be disappointed!
  • Not many kids can say they have fed sharks. The aquarium is small and a little run down, but kids love it here. The interaction is what they love and that is much better than just staring at something behind glass like at most big aquariums. You can feed a variety of animals. Gift shop is large. Lots of parking. Prices are a little high, but my son and I had a lot of fun.
  • Its a nice place to take the kids to interact with marine life. You have to purchase tokens along with your admittance if you want to be able to feed the fish, but you can also use those tokens at the concession stands and gift shop. I just wish it was a little bigger. I think that would make the flow a little better. I also liked that they had multiple wash stations so after you fed the fish you could wash your hands if you needed to.
  • We had a great time for our first visit! First let me say I normally am very picky about caged up animals or sea life but this place was very well kept and the fish were all really nice displays. We have a 22mo toddler and there was so much for him to get up close and personal with. Definitely a great place for kids to learn about sea life. We got food tokens to feed the fish and we will use them when we come back in the future. We also enjoyed the kid play area, very simple but just what my little guy needed. We took our own food and had lunch in their snack area. I would suggest bringing your own because they have a very limited selection and it's just pizza and hotdogs and chips. We will for sure be back!
  • My son had a great time at the aquarium. There are many aquatic life to look at and to feed. There is also an area for children to run off some energy, which is great since my child is 6 years old. Also, plenty of room for my stroller to maneuver around.
