“Great for small kids”
Reviewed 22 April 2014

I took my nieces there and they loved it. I liked that most of the aquariums are low, at eye level for small children. They also have a tunnel the goes thru one of the larger aquariums. The girls loved it. At the end there is a small indoor play ground for the little ones. It was hard to pull them away. I enjoyed watching them having a blast and seeing the sense of wonder in their eyes as they saw all the different species of fish. I highly recommend this for young children.

Great place to visit for any ages. Loved the turtles the most! Easy walk for young children but also not to overwhelming.

“Cute place! Weird location”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

This is located inside a mall. We had some time to kill before our 9 pm flight. It was perfect. Nice and cool. Very informative. Helpful friendly staff. Megan gave a nice talk about the aquatic life in the large aquarium.

Thank you for your review! The location of our aqaurium right inside of Arizona Mills Mall makes it convientent for guests to enjoy indoor shopping as well as great food options throughout the mall all in one stop. All of our tickets are all-day admission which makes it perfect for anyone to leave to grab a bite to eat and come on back to view any one of our great talks and feeds held every hour on the half hour. We hope to see you again soon!

“Loved the tunnel!”
Reviewed 22 March 2014

Our kids enjoyed visiting this aquarium. The water tunnel was very cool as were the viewing domes. It was a little pricey but I would probably visit again if we were in the area.
