My daughter said that this made her feel like she was right in the ocean with the fish, and it also gave her a 360 degree view. The aquarium itself, has over 5000 creatures, ranging from seahorses to sharks, and there really is loads to see and do. The 360 degree tunnel was our personal favourite, and it was great fund trying to spot all the different species swimming around us. It was also both very exciting and interesting to see a shark up close.
I loved that there was so much information everywhere, and even I learnt things that I never knew, so this made the experience very enjoyable. Towards the end of the attraction is a large childrens soft play area, this is ideal to have a nice cool place for your children to burn off some energy and it is included in the entry price. You must wear socks when using this facility for hygiene reasons, but if you've turned up in your flip flops and sandals, don't worry, as the shop has some socks for sale just in case.
Next to the soft play area is an interactive rockpool, that allows you to get really up close with some fascinating creatures. There is a guide on hand to help and answer questions and there are large tv screens on the walls, so that you can see the creatures really clearly. I felt this was a great idea under supervision as it allowed children to see creatures they may not normally have the chance to, and with a helper on hand, it meant they could ask any questions that came to mind. It is of course important to remember to wash your hands afterwards and there are sinks & steps available for both children and adults.
This is not a full day attraction, and it took us around 90 minutes to walk around at a leisurely pace. However, when combined with the other attractions on site, you could easily spend a few hours here. It is very accessible, with plenty of parking and an iTrolley stop a very short walk away. If you are after a slower paced day, away from the stress of the parks then I would definitely recommend a visit here.
