Ripley's Aquarium Of Canada, Toronto Reviews - Write a Review
I thought this aquarium was great the first time and only better the second time I went. Great hours, interesting (and relaxing) aquarium set ups and great hours. In fact, I would recommend only going in the evening so there is no danger of being there when a school group came through (although I went at 8pm at night both times and one time there was a high school group from the US on a school trip. They came in when we did but moved through it at a much faster pace and so we saw little of them). Food at the small cafeteria was decent and the price was not as outrageous as I expected. I bought an online deal for two and it came with the admissions, the guidebook (a $2 value and it is really small), a photo in a paper frame (which I really liked and they sent me the digital copy for no extra cost) and $20 worth of food at the snack bar. When you see this place you realize it must be expensive to run and so it really does justify a higher admissions price. I think this is a gem but of course there are much larger aquariums out there.
Highly recommended attraction. Excellent exhibits that are entertaining and educational. Lots of interactive displays. Great for adults (with or without children) and kids of all ages. Allow 1.5-2 hours (at least) for best experience. Bonus: if you have your diving license you can go swimming with the sharks, sea turtles, and other sea life (makes for a great gift too)!
This is a very unique attraction located steps from union station. Very atmospheric and ominous but educational and interactive at the same time. Tons of things to touch and experience throughout the day like dive shows and feedings. Host an event or even a sleepover in the shark tunnel. The jellyfish exhibit is worth mentioning too. Definitely a fun experience for the whole family. The food court is reasonable priced and good quality. 5 Stars.
Maybe it's better for kids because the place is so small, but my boyfriend and I spent less than an hour and a half there and that includes the 25+ minutes eating and browsing the gift shop. I really enjoyed the tank tunnel and the jellyfish section but other than that, this place left much to be desired for something with Ripley's name. For how little time we spent there, compared to the price and crowdedness, it wasn't worth it for two adults. The only redeeming factor for me is hoping that the money spent actually goes towards taking care of the animals, and not towards the insane amount of advertising they have for very little entertainment. I'm sure a kid would have a blast there but for just an adult with a lot of affection for animals, I was pretty underwhelmed. 5/10 would not recommend, better off going to the Zoo (which probably costs less)
My family and I love this place. It is well maintained and always surprising. I would recommend going on week days at night as often you get less people. Avoid tourist high season as it is hard to enjoy or take photos when too crowded. They serve drinks after certain hour, it makes the walk even more entertained.
