We love visiting here! All of the kids have fun and plenty to explore. The upstairs play area is always a hit for the little kids! Very well run.

I couldn't believe my freshman grandson was willing to go. We both enjoyed it, although there were a lot of small children running around. But, isn't it nice that the Aquarioum appeals to all ages.
