    Okay-worth going

    Dolohin and sea lion show were enjoyable. Everything else was so so. Younger kids would enjoy it better. We did enjoy watching the Dolphins from the windows in the tank. My teenagers and I were done in 2 hours.

    Enjoyed the dolphin show, penguins and giant tortoises the most.

    The staff are friendly and knowledgable at this park. There was a bit too much concrete for our liking and the "chats" were very short. No discount in admission fees even though they were renovating the stingray, otter and dolphin areas, so they were all unaccessible. Overall, the kids enjoyed their day and it wasn't too expensive.

    A little disappointed in the park. It was much smaller than I expected. The tanks for some of the animals seemed a little dirty.

    Not what we expected!

    Some of the exhibits are very dirty. Seems overpriced for the experience.
