Aquatarium Reviews & Ratings
Awesome activity for children, ideal for a rainy day. Very spacious, this is our second visit, we also came last year in early Spring on a rainy weekend. Never felt crowded, each time. I have a 4yo and a 1.5yo and we stayed for many hours. They enjoyed going from one activity to the other. Varied types of activities (motor, sensory, observation, etc.). The "layout" is just five stars. I just can't imagine how much it must have cost to build this place ! Massive wood boat "reproductions", submarine-like elevator, amazing decoration. Incredible that we have something like this in Brockville. Danielle at the front desk was warm and welcoming. Staff and volunteers throughout the facility are so helpful and attentive. You can park indoors, change boots for shoes and leave coats in car. However there is no place where to have something to eat in the same building (off season I imagine).
Was an amazing experience for my children and me. Lots of activities and hands on exhibits. A very interesting and engaging layout of all areas in the building. A perfect mix of live creatures to electronic interactions. The staff was friendly and very attentive. I am looking forward to coming back.
So wonderful to have such a great facility available locally! Not having to drive an hour away for a family outing is such a relief. The touch pool is amazing, the volunteers there are always super friendly with my kids. Also, the lay out is crazy! Every inch is used in such great ways, my kids love all the little hide away areas and secret passagrs to discover.
great place. possibly reconsider staffing at front desk. there’s a jen down there and when I went with my sister and her kids she wasn’t very kind and also seemed wasted and rude. also talked about her..personal.. problems which were in appropriate go work. I saw another complaint about her which reminded me. definitely made our “fun day” less fun. not a great person or employee imo.
Mediocre at best. Got the free ticket when it was available and there wasn't much to see or do for anyone who is under the age of 8. The motorized under water submarine was interesting but the tank was not big enough to roam around in for very long without becoming bored. The bungee jump looked like it would have been fun and you can pay extra to climb the ships and ropes on the second floor. Overall it was fun but definately wouldn't return as it's only really good for one time.
