  • We had "Park Hopper" tickets to Legoland which included access to Sea Life Aquarium. Several exhibits such as jellyfish were pretty good, but overall there is not much here and this place was a real d...  more »
  • Due to the rain during our stay, we decided to visit this aquarium as we were trying to find indoor activities. For the money that we paid, I was expecting a bit more. It's only about a 30 minute walk...  more »
  • Nice staff but not very big or exciting. It is a nice break if you are hot or cold. The kids enjoyed it.  more »

  • Marine life is neat to see, but it gets very crowded and cramped. Scavenger hunt items are fun for kids, but maybe they could switch up the minor prize at the end. We have dozens of the cheesy paper hats they give out by now.
  • Great aquarium. Nice collection of sea animals. Takes 30 minutes to walk through. Great for kids and adults. Not a solo attraction. But definitely worth it if you are going to Legoland.
  • Staff was so friendly! I was in a wheelchair and they brought me a starfish to feel since I couldn't get up and feel them! They had a little activity for the kids to collect stamps and the kids were so into it and at the end once they complete it they get a paper Lego hat. So much for the kids to see and learn! Some of the aquarium tanks had domes you can go under and from the outside it looks like ur in the tank! The kids loved it!
  • A bit on the small side but fun to go through rarely every busy. There is a stamp treasure hunt for kids that leads them to a prize at the end. Has a touch tank, overhead walk through shark tank. Awesome lego displays in the exhibits. A great place to cool down in the summer.
  • Think of it as an interactive slideshow. You walk around exhibits as you make your way out. It's so immersive!!
