We spent an afternoon at Gulf World with our 9 and 6 year old girls. They loved it! Yes, it's a little run-down, but they didn't care. 5 of us got in for around $111.00. They give you a schedule of their shows, and you can make each one back to back (I think we saw 5 shows - Bottle Nose Dolphin, Sea Lion and Rough Tooth Dolphin (grown-ups favorite), Furry & Feather Friends (Kids' favorite), SCUBA demonstration, etc.) We spent about 3-4 hours there going from show to show. They have a few other things to do - an indoor "jungle" that has mostly birds, a stingray tank, a shark tank, and a few other things to see.
While you are there - get the $5.00 tickets to the Noah Welles Magic Show (M/W/F nights at 7:30) - it costs only $5.00 with park admission and is worth much more than that! Their gift shop also had some cute things I had not seen at some other souvenier shops.
The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because it is a little bit run-down, but it is well worth your money!
