The place is set up as a long hallway with curves and things to view. Making it narrow and uncomfortable (especially with a stroller). You can rush people... More

We went there since Legoland offered the ticket for an extra euro 7. So why not....need to keep the kids busy. Already mentioned by other reviewers: Although we had purchased the combi ticket, at Sea Life, we still need to wait in line at the VIP section to get the actual VIP tickets. The waiting time is probably shorter than... More

A fairly good sized aquarium. Stroller/wheelchair accessible. Did not eat here so can't comment on food.

I went quite early before too many people had arrived, and after a brief delay was allowed inside. The offering of marine life is varied but not spectacular and the shark tank had some quite small...

We did not manage to see any feedings because there was nothing planned anymore after 13:30... Positives: - Neat and easy to walk through - There are some nice sharks and fish to see Not so... More
