On Wednesday 8/13/03 5:44 PM The facility was superb. Great examples, clean, informative. The staff was rude and ignorant. First, they charge extra to get in the Oceanarium, we purchased tickets under the impression that we would be seeing a dolphin show. Then we waited in line for 35 min. Then they let
us in only to tell us that there was no show for our time slot and there was no refunds. The staff was less than friendly, and had no idea what was going on. Parking is about a mile away and costs $10. Other than that, it was great!!!! - Aqua Dog, 08/13/2003
I recently went to the aquarium again a few weeks ago. Although I am only 13 years old, I have always enjoyed going there (most young people don't). I refreshed my memory on some already known information and also learned some new things (the sea horse exhibit). I hope you continue to have such wonderful programs available to people like me. Thank you very much. - Amy Halloran, 03/16/2000
