It was fun they had lot of fish to see. But when we try to get in it ,we had hard time.We had to call vacation easy to get our tickets and they only give us half of it. So we stood around for about 30 mins wait for our tickets to get fax.
Tip: Make sure u get your tickets before u go

First time for my family, we really had an enjoyable time. Seeing my daughters face and to see her get to learn and touch a jellyfish and to get in the center of the penguins, that she loves plus to touch a sting ray made one happy ten year old. This made this mom a happy memory.

Fun for the whole family, you can spend hours in the aquarium and never get bored. It is truly amazing how close you can get to all the animals. Food in the cafeteria was even good.
Tip: Eat before you go or get stamped and go across the plaza to subway if you are looking to save money, the food is good but pricey.

It was so much fun and so exciting to see all the exhibit's they had of all the different fish and sea life! We couldn't believe how much they had to offer hand's on to experience! We definitely want to go again! Vacations easy made it very nice for us to be able to just walk through the long line there was also and be able to get in without the wait we would have had to go through if we hadn't have had the plan ahead tickets and stood out in the heat!!

This was an awesome experience! We were there during a non-busy time, so we could take our time and walk through everything. We loved the whole thing from the first exhibit to the last! We would have liked to be able to pet one of the penguins ... The workers were walking one of them through the facility, but we could not pet him because they said he bites. But other than that, it was an excellent tour!

Both children loved it, especially the parts where they could crawl in and be a part of the exhibit. My husband and i enjoyed the lagoon tunnel and the species they have on display were great. I wish we could have seen the sea turtle but the penguins made up for it and there was another up close tunnel for the kids. They even liked seeming them swim past the glass floor plate. I would go again.
