Awesome place to visit. Entered the marine world with no expectations, exited with so much nice memories. You get to forget rest of the world when you are here. Lots of fish varieties. Most of which are a surprise to watch. You can spend atleast 3 hrs here peacefully. They have a good court and a popcorn stall too. Those who want to spend half a day outside city life, pls try visiting here once.

The day we visited, we had a long queue in all counters for the tickets. But I booked online in a minute and entered the premises without wasting time. Sometimes they give offer while we book online too.

Take kids and have fun.

Not even worth it for single star. Don't waste your money.
Kids will never enjoy... Since most of the rides are in under maintenance.

Firstly the one you rather not waste your money on and recommend you should not fall for it is the "VR" at the entry. They advertise it as a 9D experience, but does not even give a 3D experience at the best. If you have ever experienced a 4D or such in one of those sea worlds or Disney worlds elsewhere, just forget about pulling out your wallet and wasting 150Rs/person for the 10 minute thing where you sit on a chair that keeps making cranking noises and bumping up and down while you watch a video beamed to your gear that is strapped to your head. 9D is a sham.
An whats worse is the videos are not even stitched together, but 3 different videos are streamed one after the other while operator announces "next video" that without appropriate audio doesn't ever make you feel like being underwater. Even Youtube does a better job of streaming queued videos back to back !! Probably enjoyable only for little kids (8yrs or younger). I would not even rat 1-star for the VR, but sue them for the misleading 9D which is nothing but a money scam.

Otherwise, coming to the main attraction, if you are interested in or like to see fishes, this is a good place one could easily spend 3-4 hours enjoying your time watching them - lots of variety of fishes, big and small, can be seen. I mean "live" fishes! It was amazing to see various fishes of different colors swimming together in each of the many of those aquariums (like the one in my uploaded pic), feels pretty even for me as an adult.

The only touch pool is that of the star fishes where one can touch and feel their body. There are many other pools which are open on the top and have fishes that can be viewed.

The underwater tunnel provides a nice experience of like being under water (in the ocean) but the tunnel could be much well maintained - without touch marks and being clear to make the view as real as being in the water than reminding being in a glass tunnel.

And in case you were asking, there are no live shows.. this is not SeaWorld., but worth a visit if you love fishes.

We had a very bad experience with the wallet parking. The driver scratched our new car but when asked started speaking very rudely. Even the operations manger Vijay Kumar is so irresponsible while talking to visitors. There are no CCTV cameras to know who has taken the car. Anything can happen to your car but management won't take any responsibility. So, I suggest people don't go for wallet parking.

👍 Wide varieties of Deep Ocean fishes can be seen here. There are even some sharks 🐠🐟🦈

👍 The entire place is maintained very well.

👍 One of the highlights of this place is the huge tank and they've made a cave out of it, thus allowing us to watch the movement of fishes around us.

👍 There is a touch gallery where you're allowed to touch some fishes under supervision.

👍 Though I haven't seen it, I've heard that everyday there is a scheduled slot for feeding time. Visitors will be allowed to watch the staffs feeding the fishes. Recommend to check with the place before your visit.

👍 Good place to bring kids.

👍 There is a souvenir shop inside where they sell ocean life themed toys for kids.

👍 There is also a restaurant and a cafe inside the place.

Terrible response from customer support and management, we booked discounted tickets in during Covid 1st wave when VGP marine kingdom CEO requested people to buy ticker over online and support them since no business, I too booked 5 tickets for my family for helping them as well as can get some discount. Later I called customer care and confirmed about ticket validity, they said can come anytime, after 2 months I went to visit the place with family and kids, they said tickets already expired, once again I have to buy tickets to visit the place, poor maintenance when compare with other places, it's not worth to visit this place, less fish varieties.
