You feel like you are part of the aquarium environment without being in the gear that you would have needed to wear to be underwater. There were other water animals that were isolated from the bigger aquarium. There was even a touch tank. A bathroom...More

This aquarium might be a bit small compared to other larger ones in major cities, but this packs a great punch. $25 per adult, we walked right up to the counter and had to wait in no lines (we went on a Friday afternoon). The...More

Don't remember there being any snakes but the way the aquarium is set up you must follow a pre determined path so I don't think you could avoid any of the exhibits. Sorry!
