We came to see the Mermaids when they had presented them. The facility is definitely a treat for the eyes. I think the rate is high though for what you get. Without the mermaids, the usual interactive exhibit is the stingray pool. It's all scenic, makes for good pictures. Entry gave 5 minutes to see the mermaids in the water, another charge to take a photo with one. It's appearance is nice, immersive. Nothing to do outside like others I've been to, but it is a place to check off when visiting New Orleans. It's just the rate for admission that I think is high, spend all day there, get your monies worth. I think the rate for kids and seniors SHOULD be $15, adults $25. That's comparable to what you get, since you're doing all the work of walking. They have a neat treehouse you can stand in, overlook the rainforest type foliage and guests walking under. I heard they closed since our visit and are undergoing renovations and will reopen in the summer of 2023. I hope the rate doesn't increase because then it might be fitting if they add to it.
