  • THis place is amazing!!!! our whole family loved it!! from 10 months old to 45 years old. They have made the science of sea life extremely educational and the best part is they made it awsomely fun for all!! Very clean, temperature was great. price was a little high, but absolutely worth it! Can not say enough good about it. Took us 2 hours to go through and enjoy everything.
  • Sea life is surpringly long maze of hallways full of a very nice variety of different species and themes. Don't expect a sea world so much as a unguided tour of fish tanks. I went with some friends and kids from out of town and them and there 2 kids under 4 enjoyed it. The last con is that it is a bit expensive and suggest doing this with a combo pass to Legoland to make it a day trip.
  • Friend and I came here as two 20+ year olds expecting it to be catered towards children. Pleasantly surprised. While there are lots of things that make the experience better for young ones, it was a super fun day for us as adults as well. Yes, it's a bit pricey if you look at it as just a ticket purchase, but honestly if you consider it a donation to the huge plethora of animals they are saving and helping, then it's honestly not bad.
  • We enjoyed the aquarium. It was a little small, especially for how much they charge you. It is also frustrating that they do not allow you to exit and re-enter the same day without paying for another admission. I enjoyed the large tanks that allowed you to really view all the different sea life. My 4-year-olds enjoyed it, but my 12 year old became bored pretty quick.
  • For our purpose it was a decent experience with an 11 month old. It's a fairly short walk through so we didn't need to hold her attention for long. One downside is that it's very narrow and isn't very stroller friendly.
