we spent the day here with our kids of varying ages. It kept everyone interested and entertained. It's pretty easy to navigate it in one day. The food court people are also very nice but I did get a little sick from my lunch.

If you have kids under 10, this is a particularly good choice. Over that age is probably more hit or miss. There is parking right in front for $10, so it is easy to manage that. Fees are in line with the type of attraction....More

We went to Sesame Place (Langhorne,PA) and went to Adventure Aquarium the next day (about 40 min. away). We purchased the tickets on-line (I highly recommend this to avoid long lines) and proceeded to an entrance on the side.

One of the many reasons I love this aquarium is because they offer homeschool days!!! The 3D movie is so fun. Although my 2 year was a little fearful of the movie. We packed our lunch to save money. My kids touched a shark and...More

First time here and was attending a wedding. It's a fabulous venue! I loved the high tops with candle light along the path viewing the different tanks. The backdrop of the ceremony was a wall of windows into a huge shark tank. And we got...More
