We did the combo deal with sea life and Legoland and they were both just okay. There were several neat sea life animals but only took us about an hour to go through. Very clean facility. Did this as part of a family vacation but...More

Sea Life is kid friendly, simple, and exciting. There is a wide variety of sea life there, including sharks, rays, jellyfish, and eels. Kids who love Octonauts or Finding Nemo/Dory will love what Sea Life has to offer. Unfortunately, the price tag keeps it from...More

The exhibits are informative and nicely done. While it seems to cater to children, it is still appealing to all ages. The sea life on exhibit appeared healthy and well cared for. All areas were clean and attractive. Give yourself 2 hours to go through,...More

Great smaller aquarium and well worth the visit. Interactive areas. They have a great variety of sea life and the 5 and 7 year old I was with loved it. Great way to spend a few hours.

This aquarium had a few cool exhibits but it is definitely geared towards kids. My wife and I were only here for 30-45 minutes. It is expensive for the amount of time spent there. Kids would love the aquarium.

We came here after visiting the discover center next door. The exhibits were as expected because we have visited SeaLife in San Diego, CA. The building and the exhibits are small but there was plenty to look at. Fortunately, it was not crowded when we...More

Yes, Sea Life is geared for the younger crowd. Yes, it's a bit pricy. It's also beautiful, informative, and fun! The lights are dimmed, the beautiful colors pop. There are walk through tunnels with sea life swimming over your head. There are aquariums with bubbles...More

We didn't realize that this was really geared towards little kids. I get that it is attached to LEGOLAND, but we figured it would be an ok balance for a family. It was a bit too juvenile for my group and $80 for 4 people...More

While we do feature sharks, sting rays and octopus; SEA LIFE Aquariums around the world do not feature any marine mammals such as whales.
