Not much here. Too expensive. We went through the aquarium in an hour. I don't think we got our money's worth.

Thank drjanetcummings

This is a relatively small aquarium. Don't expect the Aquarium of the Pacific in Long Beach CA or the Monterey Aquarium in Monterey CA. This is a self guided walk that ultimately leads to their cafeteria and merchandise store. It should take 1.5 hours or so.

We had access to the aquarium through our hopper pass, so decided to check it out. We didn't really know what to expect, but it turned out to be quite good. Plenty of exhibits with good variety and information. The kids really enjoyed exploring and getting up close to the marine life. It's designed for children to enjoy, as well as adults. You can see it all within about an hour. We probably spent about 90 minutes inside.

Love how they integrated the LEGOLAND experience into this Sea Life Aquarium. It was a great break form the park. Definitely makes the Park Hopper worth the money.
