  • Great size aquarium if you are taking young children! Only takes an hour and a half to walk through, but lots of interactive displays to get the kids involved. Very happy to have this included with ou...  more »

  • This was a nice change of pace from Legoland. The kids enjoyed it and it had a lot of different fish etc. We bought the pass included with Legoland and I would suggest this ticket. It was a nice break...  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!!
