  • Amazing place. I visited here with my nephew a few years ago and we had a great time. He was probably three and fascinated with absolutely everything. He especially loved the sharks, but there were so many attractions to look at that he was enthralled the entire time. We posed with the mermaids and I bought him a stuffed shark as a souvenir.

But the displays were very nicely done to look like the habitat where you would be to see the animals. They had a couple of nice sections where the tanks were over your head and you were looking up through the glass into the tanks.
