It would have been nice to have a separate line for the city pass holders since we have already purchased our tickets. But once we made it through, the aquarium is beautiful, clean and well set up.
The displays were bright and clean and easy to view with the number of visitors in there at the same time.
The stingrays were a hit with everyone and nice that they were included in the city pass.
We spent some time outside at the rides and different games...a little bit of something for everyone. It was a great way to spend some time while we waited for our reservation in the restaurant.

We LOVED this aquarium that also has two of the most beautiful white tigers with a wonderful viewing area. This is a place that should not be missed if you have children as there is also a delightful outdoor area for them as well with a ferris wheel and rides.. We did not eat there but were not disappointed in the aquarium and the price is reasonable!

We went with friends and kids. Too hot (better misting stations would help), too much cost for so few rides, the food was not fantastic. Won’t be back.

Basic buffet with just a few options to choose from... the quality of the food was poor. Brunch was expensive even for the kids. I am not coming back... I will give 2 stars because the kids enjoyed with the fish tanks

We love visiting the Aquarium because there are fun rides, the restaurant full of fish in aquariums, a train ride around the property...under and through a huge aquarium filled with large fish and sharks, and live stingrays to feed and touch. People of all ages can enjoy. Our grandchildren love everything there. You can easily spend three or four hours there. Parking available; must pay for parking...BRING CASH.
