At CentrO there is a sea park but I always thought this place can be more special as it is a bit overrated

It may not be unique or the largest but it was a good experience for our daughter who fully enjoyed it. Good to combine with a visit to the CentrO.

Other than the big tank,all the other items are average for kids. You could try some other options. The tank view is also small and on the way, you cannot take photo properly as you will be blocking the people way.
