I decided to visit this aquarium despite the complaints that it was small and overpriced. Overall, my children and I enjoyed the whole experience (to include Rainforest Cafe and Lego Land) and found it to be worth the 1.5 hr drive and price. We visited during spring break so it got painfully crowded BUT it was nice and empty for the first hour around 9 am (when it opened). We give this a thumbs up for occasional visits but would never consider it worthy of a season pass.
About the price- For a little over $100, I purchased the Lego Discovery Center/ Aquarium combo pack for 1 adult and 3 children. The total also included 3 Sea Life Ranger Mission Packs at $5 each.
For those who are considering the Mission packs, I have mixed feelings. The pack contains, a booklet to collect 9 embossed stamps at various stations throughout, a magnifying card, a mini pencil, tear-away collector cards and reading material all stuffed into a case on a lanyard. Upon receiving their little kits, the kids were informed that they would receive a prize from the gift shop if they collected all of the stamps. Unfortunately, the prize became the focus of our visit, the kids rushed through the exhibits to go to the next stamping station. The prize was a cheap medal and in case you are wondering, the cashier did not examine the booklets for the stamps. After we received our prizes, we (I) decided to walk through the exhibit again but it was very crowded by this point. We spent approximately 2 hours there then moved onto the Lego exhibit.
