Overall a great experience but just way too crowded at the time we went (9am). It looked much less busy in the evening hours.

Pricey but OK. The kids had fun though. Did like the moving floors through one part as it kept people moving instead of clogging up everywhere

We had a great first time visit here with our four year old. She loved it all and especially the play Land areas. My only critique is that it is super expensive.

I live near Atlanta and I'm really glad these tickets were free because I have seen way better aquariums.
