I expected more from the Sea Life Aquarium at Legoland. I visit the Sea Life in the Phoenix area yearly. I thought the Legoland Sea Life would be bigger and have more to see. But I think they are both about the same size. It...More

It's a nice addition to the park hopper ticket. It's relatively small, so not lots of time is required to get through it. We've been to bigger aquariums in the area that are set up with more displays, and this is still a fun visit....More

This was a free add on from going into LEGOLAND. It was OK but glad I didn't have to pay extra. After going to SeaWorld ,this is somewhat of a let down.

This was such a nice aquarium. We loved the interaction they set up for the kids! The area where we could touch the starfish and other sea animals was the kids favorite part!

It's a one time place to visit since the space inside is very small and could be crowded at times trying to squeeze through the narrow pathways inside. There are certainly better places.

Is this separate from Legoland- in other words can you pay to visit "just" the Sea Life Aquarium without buying tickets to Legoland?

Answer
Response from Bryan P | Property representative |
Hi, Yes, you can buy SEA LIFE aquarium tickets separate from LEGOLAND. The walk-up price for an aquarium-only ticket is $22. Thank you, Bryan
