We had a great first time visit here with our four year old. She loved it all and especially the play Land areas. My only critique is that it is super expensive.

I live near Atlanta and I'm really glad these tickets were free because I have seen way better aquariums.

It was fun. This was exactly what you'd expect from an aquarium. Food not very good at all. You'll probably want to eat before or after.
