    Large under water transparent tunnel to give feel of Sea life.
    I have visited VGP Marine Kingdom last week. It's located on main ECR road, so it was quite easy to reach. It's a great place to spend time especially for kids. They have a huge collection ( over 5000) of spices of fishes. The fishes and aquatic animals, well organized and maintained by them. There is a mega transparent under water tunnel. Restaurants is available within a aquarium building. Overall it was a nice experience.

    Great experience at VGP Marine Kingdom.
    It's a great place to spend a day at Chennai for exploring the ocean life. Ticket price per head is ₹650/- for adults. It's a collection of huge aquarium well arranged with Almost all types of fishes can be viewed live through the glass.

    Amazing experience. My daughter loved watching the fish. The entry ticket was priced very high more variety of species can really add on to the experience. They wanted to create the same kind of experience which is in Singapore and Malaysia. But can be little better. Over all my daughter enjoyed.

    Absolutely amazing place. It's done extremely nicely. Unbelievable to see the variety of fish. Beautifully made and so so clean. The staff is also very friendly. Highly recommend for kids to experience this. We have seen many aquariums in various countries but this definitely tops the list.

The walk-in aquarium is India's largest and undoubtedly the coolest. The 70-meter underwater tunnel was simply breathtaking, and I was able to witness exotic species from 5 different aquatic zones up close. The live feeding shows were not only entertaining but also educational. The touch pool exhibits were a definite highlight and allowed me to interact with the marine life in a fun and interactive way. The staff was knowledgeable, friendly, and made my visit all the more enjoyable. I highly recommend VGP Marine Kingdom to anyone looking for a unique and unforgettable experience!

Excellent place in Chennai to hangout with kids. The place is well kept and is worth every penny spent. The walk through aquarium with Sharks swimming over the heads is the highlight of the place. They have a cute AI experience for kids that takes a 2D sketch from kids and renders it on a screen as a 3D animation. Kids loved to see their imaginary fish springing to life

I personally didn't like them have a good store in a dungeon at the end of the park. The place was fairly stinky and dingy to sell food. The restrooms were not clean either.

5 Stars for the experience of watching the fishes and
2 stars for how well the place is maintained

#Worst experience!
#VGP #Marinekingdom.

With ticket price in the higher end (Rs.695 per head, excluding parking charge), we would think it would be amazing. Unfortunately..
1) None of the staff even knows the name of the #fishes there. (They only know where the bathroom is or the price of the snacks).
2) Can't spend more than an hour. (Can go to two movies with the same money).
3) Staff was rude.
(A group of students came. The VGP staff gave mic to the teacher who was screaming "Class 3A STAND IN THE LINE. Class 4A, Class 4A!!! Where is THE LINE! FORM THE LINE.. ALL STUDENTS STAND IN THE LINE..." The screaming on the mic went for more than 10mins.
felt like we were in a school playground (got a terrible headache since it was closed area and the noise was extremely loud and unpleasant). When asked about the Mic announcements, the VGP Staff named Mr.Shiva said rudely that it will be like this only!
And suggested saying "Don't come here. Yes it will be like this. I can't do anything! You can leave if you want."
Simply, They could have allowed only the school students and refused entry for public if they don't care about others!
4) The place lacks proper maintenance (someone had vomited inside the tunnel and it was stinking, they took their sweet own time to clean, even after informing).
5) Food is overly priced and mostly old (popcorn was stale).

While the experience at #Crocodile bank/#Snake park which is few kms away was #amazing!
Snake park staffs (of #Irulas tribe) were eager to explain more, readily #answering any queries we had! The price is way lesser than VGP Marine Kingdom. Crocodile bank Rs.100 per head. Snake park Rs.30 per head.
Highly recommend the Snake park in Crocodile bank!👍🏼
A big No for Marine kingdom👎🏼

It's a excellent place to visit with family and kids together. Under water view is beyond expectations. Number of fishes are also very huge. The main attraction I felt was sharks. They are humangous.

Average place to visit. Overall it will take 45 mins - 1 hour to cover. Entry fee is very high (Rs.500+/head) for 1 hour. So you can avoid this and try snow world instead.
