We took our 3 year old grand daughter to this aquarium for her first one. At first it was a little scary because of the low light level and big creatures. After a few minutes she really got into it and loved sitting under the below tank viewing ports. There were tickets available online for a significant adult discount. I... More

It is decent place to spend with your child for an hour but a little pricey... good for first few visits but after that it gets boring since they don't change much and rarely do events.

My family was coming into town for the Thanksgiving hiliday week. I online booked a total of 12 tickets to visit the aquarium on the chosen day, then just an hour after I booked, I found out that none of us would be available. I called to explain my situation only to be told that they had no way to... More

One of the things that would have made my visit much better was for there to have been a place to drop luggage. There are no lockers or places to drop bags in the mall or at the aquarium. Having to pack my bags/luggage through the aquarium detracted from the experience.

This was our first experience at an aquarium and it was the perfect size. My 7 year old all the way up to my 73 year old dad enjoyed this place. Lots of fun fish, sharks, turtles, sting rays, etc to see. Very cool 360 degree tunnel that you get to walk thru and the trip can be educational if... More

This is a perfect aquarium for younger kids. Older kids will also enjoy the fish but I really think it's geared for preschool aged kiddos. They have an octonauts display and a playground at the end that are ideal for the smaller crowd. It's also small which is perfect for preschool ages to run around and have freedom to look... More

I've been to many of the Sea Life Aqu and this one was similar. The play area at this location was much better than usual! There were many great sea creatures to sea and my kiddos loved it! Shark tunnel is always neat! Highly recommend when visiting Phoenix!
