    If you buy tickets online, you can do a behind the scenes tour for about $5/person. Well worth it. You see any animals not in tanks and also can more easily see where the turtles and sharks hang out.

    Half price adult tickets online. You don't need to print them out as long as you have the number on from the tickets. You can go as many times during that day as you want :)

    SEA LIFE is the perfect break from all of that shopping. Come closer to more than 10,000 sea creatures, including sharks, sea turtles, rays, jellyfish, seahorses and much more! Read more

    Do take the "Behind the Scenes" tour. You'll get to see the aquarium from the top and feed the fish. Sharks feeding is on Tues, Thurs and Sun.

    Good for a date day. My gf had fun here. Especially when it is cold outside this is a nice alternative to bars and clubs.

    You can go through as many times as you want! We average 3 times! We have a family pass and got our moneys worth!

    Try to go when the tour is going to start, the place clears out quickly. Gift shop prices are unbelievable.

    Lots of fish to see, but $20 for an adult is beyond excessive. Not to mention that my hallways at home are wider than they are here.

    Behind the scenes tour is well worth the extra $7. Look for discount admission coupons near the north entrance to the mall.

    You may pet starfish and crabs and may see a giant lobster. Online, I learned that you can pay to sleep overnight in the aquarium with the sharks. Well, admissions seems rather pricey.

    feed a stingray! they don't have teeth; it just feels like a weird slurpy vacuum sucking shrimp out of your hand

    Very overpriced - even with coupon. Might be worth seeing if you've never been to an aquarium or if the price was discounted at least 50%, otherwise skip it.
