The experience as general was ok; but, below my expectations. The tunnel was very short, the upper floor was usual. It is ok to try it for once

Amazing big aquarium with diversity of water creatures. Zoo is very good and you can be so close to the open aquariums.

Really nothing that amazing or exciting about this place if you've been to SeaLife and other places. At best okay to kill some time. Wont miss much if you give this a skip - could rather use the money somewhere else!

Great zoo and aquarium. Buy tickets on the upper floor to avoid queues. Be attentive not to miss anything. There are upper levels which can be easily missed.

So many species of aquatic animals. Love the way they have created a tunnel though which it feels you are underwater. the aquatic zoo has so many species. It is very informative
