“Great aquariums”
Reviewed 13 May 2014

As you walk through the gates of the aquarium it does not look too impressive. However when you find your way underground to various aquariums its really very very good. There are some huge fish and some really impressive displays of lots of different types of fish. We had a great time. Our kids loved the kids fish tunnel very much.

“A very nice and educational way of presenting sea life.”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

In a very well designed and maintained park a wide variety of see animals can be viewed. Large basins and huge underground aquaria with tunnels give the feeling that you can look at the animals in an almost natural habitat. Some of the larger animals however like the Beluga however look a bit stressed and bored, swimming the same trajectory all the time.

“Impressive, really big”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Liked all the aquariums - sharks, penguins, sea lions, Red Sea, but found the walrus tank way too small for the 3 gigantic walruses swimming back & forth, poor things. Missed the dolphin show. Easy to get lost. Very futuristic buildings. Cost is 2,80 euros to get in, but you can walk around the outside huge buildings for hours for free. Bring water.

“Interesting Restaurant”
Reviewed 11 May 2014

Had a Prix Fix Menu of only 2 choices. A little limiting tho the food was very good. As it was lunch the portion sizes were small Fun to watch the fish circle around you as the room is surrounded by a circular aquarium .
