  • It is a smaller aquarium but has fun exhibits for kids of all ages. I wouldn’t plan on spending more than an hour or two here though!  more »
  • Fun for kids but no more because is not worth the Britch of Jolla or SeaWorld SanDiego...

  • Don’t miss it! We saw it as we were leaving and there were many floors of exhibits. Kids loved the touch tank.  more »

  • Really small aquarium, with fish tanks that look like they don’t get cleaned often. The jellyfish tank was cool. Was included in my 2 day Legoland hopper pass that I bought through a discount program offered by my employer via ticketsatwork, so m happy that I did not pay for it. If you’ve seen any aquarium anywhere, you can safely skip this one.
  • Nice sized aquarium to visit after a day at Legoland. Lots of educational fun for the young ones. Not too big and not too small. Especially on hot days save this one for last.
  • Little costly like the rest. 20 for parking.? Crazy.. Cafe is pretty good. Place is clean. Good place for kids.
  • First visit. Don't expect too much, there are nice tanks with informative touch screens which keeps the kids involved. There's tanks of jelly fish, a small touch pool, and other tanks with smaller random fish. It was a nice end to the day, is it necessary, not really, but a nice addition if you have extra time and $$ cause it's not included in your park entry.
  • This place was more entertaining to our 2 yr old than Legoland was. It was a nice experience. It's educational and she loves all the fish, sharks, jellyfish etc. We got it done in about an hour but it's great. The only down side was no strollers.
