We went Monday, Presidents Day, we got there just as they were opening. There was a line to get in to both Sea Life and LegoLand, the line did move quickly.

My family and I visited this location on a Saturday morning. There was a line to get in, which is not to be unexpected. Upon getting inside the building, you get your first bit of sticker shock. It costs $20 for adults to get in and $16 for children 3 and up. You can purchase tickets online and save a... More

They do not open until 10 am. The opening is a dual purpose since LEGOLAND is right beside it. Suggest going when kids are in school if you are an adult lookin to see pretty fish. Once I got in, staff is friendly, helpful and informative if you have any questions. I had no problem wandering back and forth, like... More

i thought the aquarium would be a little bit bigger or have a little more stuff but for the location i guess they're limited. the exhibits and variety of fish was good and fun especially for kids.

The price was a little high, but once inside the kids really enjoyed it and made it worthwhile. The displays were nice and staff was friendly and helpful.

It was interesting and had some nice and informative exhibits. There are a lot of things that allow kids to get an "up-close" experience with undersea life. Though it was enjoyable, my husband and I would definitely recommend it to someone with children.

My 2 years old had so much fun in there. She was very young to actually enjoy everything and learn about sea life. Yet this place made her wonder and talk about fish for quite a while.

My kids loved it, but it is small. We hung out at several of the exhibits and it still only took just under an hour to go through. Not a long time considering the prices. We loved the open top sting ray tank and petting the starfish. We spent about 10 minutes creating our own fish that showed up on... More

We visited the aquarium on New Year's Day with our children ages 5 and 7. This was our first visit. We bought a ticket package for both Sea Life and LEGOLAND. It was a little pricey but the kids liked both. Sea Life was clean and the staff were extremely friendly. They gave the kids passports to stamp with embossing... More

Quick and easy. Nice displays. Very fun media centre at the end and nice adventure dive book for kids to complete throughout the visit.
