Great but read up on it. Kids can wear swimsuits and play in the water area etc. Food OK. Loud and kid friendly. Take your time going through...I saw people that just rushed through and you miss things above and below. be prepared for screaming kids and humidity. Great town.

It was a very good place to visit. My grandsons are 7 and 9 and they loved it. We really enjoyed the splash pad for the kids, they played and we got to relax and watch.

Never knew there were so many fish in the world. Your visit here makes Sea World redundant. I was impressed with the size of the aquarium as I assumed Tampa would not have such a good facility.

Our guest enjoyed the marine exhibits and the day was very enjoyable. I know from previous visits with grandchildren that the aquarium is a very good day of learning and enjoyment.

Sea world has a great underwater aquarium and this is a little far if you're staying in Orlando. But it's nice and cheap if you're after a day out.
