$60 for two people goes a long way when you get there early to see all the shows. They don't honor AAA or AARP discounts at the ticket counter-you gotta get them directly through your club membership.

We went on a weekday in the July. I'm guessing it was close to the fire code capacity . There were lots of day camp groups with thousands of kids. It was 5 or 6 deep at every display. We left after about 20 minutes.

Our youngest loves sharks! This place delivered on the sharks. The food was not very good. It has lots of the touch pools. Seeing the hippos was pretty cool also. The shark bridge amazed everyone in our group.

Great place for everyone! Love to walk around and see everything. When we were there, the Aquarium had the mermaid exhibition which was really cool and my niece loved it. We also "dared" to cross the Shark Bridge..

No. It's actually slightly lonely, although it is within walking distance to a small concert stage, a small ferry port, and the child-friendly warship, the USS New Jersey. I saw lots of small children, and I brought a... More
