The aquarium is great but parking is not so good and they have some ways to go with how they handle ticketing and entry to the facility. Having only 1 ticket checker is no where near afequate even when crowds are not big. And the...More

We took our grandsons, 6 & 8 yrs old, and had a great time. I think our favorite exhibit was the hippopotamus tank. We were there at feeding time and had an excellent learning experience. The shark tunnel was also fun and the boys were...More

I might have high standard after a visit to San Diego aquarium... but this place has very few exhibits. Hippos and sharks are the only things to see here. A bit disappointing, kids weren’t too thrilled about this place.

My family had a fantastic time at the aquarium and was there to see Scuba Santa and his Elves. Definitely recommend Adventure Aquarium for a family day.

If there are no school and/or camp trips, this is a great place to visit. However, 2 out of the four times I have been here, the amount of trips in the whole aquarium was way too much. On one of our visits, we actually...More

Great time with the kids, the extra hour perk of being an annual member, early entry for members was the way to go to beat the crowds.

I visited on 1/2 with my husband and 5 year old. We judged it right, most kids were back to school so it was not crowded. We loved the penguins, both outside and inside. There was a documentary about penguins that my son LOVED. He...More
