To preface, my family LOVES zoos and aquariums. We are frequently finding ourselves at all sorts of animal parks and petting zoos more than any other attraction. I was a bit reserved on seeing this attraction after reading some reviews. I am so glad I...More

This aquarium is more of a small aqua/ reptilian zoo exhibit than aquarium. Since it only costs $6, it’s worth the time and a few bucks to see some interesting critters, from piranhas to tarantulas. Don’t expect a huge aquarium with sharks and large fish...More

This is a small aquarium, but it was fun. We did this as an alternative because the activity we wanted to do was closed, for the season. The animals were well cared for, and the staff was friendly. The tortoise was the best.

My 13 yr old daughter begged me to take her into this place. Even after reading the terrible reviews, I gave in and we went. Just like the other reviews say...it was a big waste of my time and money. I actually felt bad for...More

Surprising collection for a small space! Loved the tortoise, especially but the whole place was interesting. I have been to several aquariums and still haven't seen some of the fish that were in this aquarium

Kind of small, but well maintained. Children would like this! We enjoyed it. Informative cards at each exhibit

We chose not to enter after looking through the tinted door window. It is made out to be more than it is.

This place is small and I don't think it has anything to do with a National Park. The grandson liked it especially with the large turtle that was crawling around the aquarium floors.

I think it was $4 or $5 for a child to get into the aquarium but can't remember for sure. I know it didn't cost much for me and my child to get in at all. Hope that helps!!
