A GREAT way to spend a day in a tropical forest. This is unlike any aquarium we have visited. A small collection of wild animals were a surprise. All in all we loved it!

We were expecting to see just different kinds of fish from different oceans and seas around the world. And mind you, they are impressive. But in order to get there we went through numerous forests from around the world. I have never seen some of...More

We were already impressed with the aquarium just with what we saw while walking up to the ticket counter. It was a winding walkway with several different animals. Expect to be entertained for at least 2-3 hours here.

Somewhat over priced. Look for coupons before going. Some of the exhibits were empty. The atrium is really neat. Fun for all ages.

This is much more than an aquarium! I saw many birds, animals, as well as sealife. Penguins are especially cute and you get quite close up. Both the gift store and the book store offer an excellent variety of products!

After buying tickets you just show them to the people at the glass entry doors. The only issue I can see is making your way through a very long line of people waiting to buy tickets. That is the only entry point. As others... More

I would say yes you can. All they did was check our recite when we came in so, as long as you keep it you should be able to go back in.
