Living Planet Aquarium

We took the kids to the Living Planet Aquarium during Spring Break. They had a lot of fun, but we were a little bit disappointed. I thought the aquarium was going to be much larger than what it actually was. Apparently this is only a preview exhibit of what is to come. However, the billboards and the website are a little deceiving. It comes across as a huge, wonderful, must-see place. It is very interesting and the kids had a great time, but for the price we paid it needs to be much larger. I'm very excited to see the actual aquarium when it is completed.

I guess I shouldn't complain too much, because the kids really did enjoy themselves. They loved touching the sting rays. They also got to touch a sea cucumber, starfish, and some other marine life. I thought the octopus was very interesting and disgusting for that matter. J and S liked Nemo and Dory. I'm glad they enjoyed the time we spent there.

I'm glad you wrote about this. We had been discussing whether to go as a family or not. So, I'm happy to have the review. Thanks!

Looks like fun even it was smaller than what you expected. Stingrays are so smooth!

So glad your house didn't burn down (warmning the bottle post from below). How scary! Sounds like something I would do.

i felt the same way after going to the aquarium, but we did get a year pass; which has turned out to be heaven sent. now we go whenever it's nasty outside and the kids have fun. i should go today... boo hoo about the weather.
