We have visited the aquarium with my 3 years old son, and it was an extreamly poor experience. I had to be suspicious when we saw at the entrance that there is no option for refund. There were small tanks, positioned highly that child can...More

We drove all the way up with our 3 little kids to see the aquarium which looks great on paper. Driving up the parking lot we already sensed it wouldnt be as promised but hey: little kids dont visit websites so they’re expecting fish- nothing...More

This place is a total rip off. There are a few small tanks with tropical fish and a couple of larger ones. There is no "shark" although it is advertised. It takes less than 15 minutes to go round and is not worth even 25...More

How come this place still be called an aquarium? Even my 2 years old was not impressed by the 30min visit (10min spend watching the one shark and turtle). I will not even say it need a relooking but a complete pull down.
