The aquarium was fun, they have different kinds of fish, octopus, turtles, sea lions penguins and other sea animals. it’s not a big place and very crowded but that didn’t bother us. I wish they had dolphins though! Also, there was a very kind man working at the cafeteria who helped us when I asked for a container for my daughter’s left over lunch, I’m a single mother and I always appreciate these kind gestures.
