This place is absolutely spectacular. So much to see. The beautiful fish, sharks, stingrays, turtles even an alligator and more. Make sure you go into the restroom the view is amazing. Worth every cent. If you go after 5 PM the rates are cheaper.

Beautiful but not really big for the price. But it is a nice place to go with the kids. And it’s in front of legoland!

Since it was raining all day, we decided to go to the aquarium. It was a very nice facility with a lot to see, we spent 4 hours there, it was perfect for a rainy day, our 6 year old loved it!

This a great place to go in the summer when the kids need something to do. It is so cool and comfortable inside. The kids love spending hours watching the fish and enjoying the cave-like atmosphere. The staff is very friendly and accommodating.
