All in all, a good aquarium. Here are some items I wish I knew. The new shark bridge is very sturdy and well constructed. You’re walking between a “V” of thick webbed roping, with a narrow-by-width (but thick) plank-like layer under you. There is no...More

I really like this Aquarium. It’s great for kids. It’s really spread out well. It’s great for all ages and love the walk above the shark tank. Really recommend this Aquarium!!

Camden Adventure Aquarium is awesome! An amazing array of aquatic wildlife is waiting right in downtown Camden, and despite the relatively expensive price tag, it’s worth the trip. You won’t find a better aquarium anywhere on the East Coast outside of Baltimore!

This aquarium was awesome! They had many touch exhibits,shows, and play areas for the kids. They didn't have the same old types of fish most aquariums have. They had hippos and even a hammer head shark! The shatk tunnel and bridge was really cool! The...More

This place was smaller than expected but really nice. The kids loved all the different feedings, touch tank, and 3D movie. I do suggest eating before you go because the food is pricey but other wise cool experience. We did the penguin encounter in an...More

You child is free, I purchased my ticket online. I would do the same to avoid the lines or if they are sold out, this way you are guaranteed entry.
