  • Good food and environment. A buy on the high side for price. Don't go here for the Aquarium if that's what you are looking for; it has some beautiful fish and sea creatures but it's more of a tourist place for lunch or dinner than aquarium. I do recommend it for kids who enjoy watching the fish and the kids menu is truly set up for kids.

  • Love the food minus the bread!!! The bread was as hard as croutons! The entire place is beautiful. Learned some interesting facts about all the different fish there. Bought some cool gifts. I really had fun.

  • It's a nice aquarium, but it is small for the price. It is setup to be like you are in a sunken ship, which is neat. The seahorses are pretty and there are some other nice displays. They also have a chance to "pet" and feed rays. That's probably the best part! Kids enjoyed it. There is a white tiger doesn't fit with the aquarium theme, but they are gorgeous!

  • My son loved this place! Very affordable! You just buy a bracelet for the day and you can get on all the rides as many times as you want! The exhibit was decent and restaurant served good food for the price.

  • It's a great place to go, really cool animals like snakes, lots of fishes and reptiles. Beautiful stingrays and jellyfish. Great rides and from the entrance you feel in the ocean or something like Atlantis. An spectacular view in the restaurant and a really good gift shop 🎉😊
