Took the kids for some non-sun time. The aquarium is an excellent exhibit with a wide variety of species. We missed the feeding times, 10 and 1, which probably would have added to the fun.

Visited the water park area. Lazy pool, wave pool, and beach are nice. Zip line is available for extra $20. Lockers are available along with concession stand. Not a bad place to visit.

The paddleboat ride was ok. At least it was air conditioned with a snack bar with drinks. The ride wasn't too exciting just cruising around the bay. It wasn't something I would do again.

Rainforest was very hot especially with small children Aquarium was great , but still in renovation mode. Prices are high at gardens, suggest discount places instead. There are places to eat, but recommend bringing your own or cooler.
