This is a great place to go young or old. There is so much to see and lots to learn. We loved the 4D Sponge Bob Square Pants short film!
Not worth the price of admission

I have heard nothing, but good things and my family and I were totally underwhelmed. They have a huge building for the dolphins, but there is no show. They have a huge area for seating and no show. This is the type of thing that is the signature feature of any aquarium, but not this place. "You can stay as long as you want and view the dolphins." Direct quote. The dolphins swam and played w a few balls and ate. Everyone left within 5 mins. Totally disappointed. They have an under water viewing section that was very cloudy, but you can see them if they swam close. The other major area was probably very cool years ago. At this month, it was way too busy to get any enjoyment. Way too many ppl and way some areas. There are tons of various sea life in all kinds of cool tanks. Very dark to take any good pictures. Overall, if half the people were there or half the cost I would have graded higher, but as is I have to say very disappointing. The camden nj waterfront is a much, much better aquarium place to go.
Nice, But Expensive

The aquarium was very nice, with many interesting exhibits, but I felt that $70 for the two of us was a bit extreme. If there were more exhibits or especially exhibits where you could interact with some animals, it would be worth it. Not worth that kind of money though.
Pricey, but good.

It shocked my girlfriend with the price being 36.50 per person when we visited, little sharp, but it only because of its location. Nice variety of fish, sharks, and other animals, cause they have a tropical rainforest setting and an Australian exhibit also. The reef was mediating. The only thing you’re not going to like, if it first not the price, is the noise of the children crying and screaming (if you don’t have kids yourself.).

Where to begin...this place boasts a LOT to look at, three buildings total if i remember correctly all with different floors and levels. This place is a kids dream, they have dolphin shows - apparently i never got to see one the entire time i was there- a rainforest, fish tanks that span different floors with everything in them that you could want to see. You really do have to go and see it first hand. The tickets were 35$ and extra money for additional shows, mainly for the kids, so a bit high and there are huge crowds in the morning and that makes it very very hard to see some of the exhibits inside. I would say definitely plan your trip around the shows and events they hold inside because if you come too late or only see the schedule after you've been walking around you may miss some things you really would like to see, like the dolphin show. Food and drinks are EXTREMELY expensive, and so are the surrounding restaraunts so pack a lunch!
