It is well worth the trip. We were able to pet sting rays, jelly fish, and a horse shoe crab. There also the opportunity to feed the sting rays. What fun!

One of the most fun aquariums I've ever visited. My 5-year-old loved it. The restaurant was much better than a typical theme park or museum restaurant.
