We went early- just as it opened. Around noon the place was already packed (on a Saturday). Place had good exhibits. My son enjoyed the play area (water play) and the touch pools

Great learning experience into the life of sea animals. Great explanations beside each display. Tour takes a couple hours but you could spend more time if you like. Toronto City Pass is a awesome way to see the attractions for a reasonable price.

Well worth the visit. Went on a weekday afternoon so not too busy. The flow moved quite well from one display to the next. Thoroughly enjoyed the day.

I visited this a few weeks ago. Overall I was super happy and enjoyed my visit. There were so many exciting things to see and do. I would have liked to see my activities rather than just visual activities.

Great family day trip. So much to see and learn. Holiday visits will be packed with others doing the same. Plan well with drinks, snacks, lunches if needed. Patience and planning is key. Often discounted tickets available. Can purchase the Ripleys museum of Niagara Falls...More

You buy your ticket on line and then you have example 3 hours to get in there. No line up since you have your timed ticket.

You should be fine. Just try not to go on a Saturday because it can get pretty crowded and almost imposible to see all the animals. They have the AC going so no humidity. Enjoy!
