    Getting an annual pass is a good idea! Went 3 times so far with it and already saved money. It's great for kids (zone C is now a kids zone) and 4D spongebob movie is cute. I love the aquarium

    The layout is designed to keep people moving, which is good because it gets crowded. Shark Tunnel is great. Also designed so you can skip Zone C (kids zone) if you don't need to go there.

    In all, this is a fun place for kids under 13ish and for adults with there kids. But after going there several times, it wasn't as fun as I hoped, not many new things, but good for people who are new.

    This place is a lot of fun for kids but expensive. Still worth it if you're in Camden. Keep in mind that during the week it's packed w/ school groups which can make it a bit of hassle to get around.

    This small but fun aquarium in jersey right before Philly is so much fun. It has all typical animals a shark show and 2 touch tanks. U can even swim with the sharks. It has a great gift shop.

    Pretty fun, definitely geared towards kids. Petting the manta rays was fun and so is the shark tunnel but there really isn't that much more. $25 per person plus $10 for parking is a little steep

    The touch tank was great! Very family friendly with lots to see! Got there in early afternoon and was able to see everything twice before closing time. Weekdays are best for avoiding crowds.

    This place was great! My 4 year old twin boys and 3 year old niece loved it. The highlights are the shark tank and all the areas where you get to pet things (sting rays, sharks, jelly fish and more).

    At the new Stingray Beach Club, adventurous types can pet and hand-feed giant stingrays or roll up their sleeves to touch jellies, shrimp, lobster, starfish, horseshoe crabs and sea cucumbers. Read more

    Very cool for the kids. Love the hippos! Deep sea creatures like the octopus and crabs hard to see in their lighting, Shark Tank a bit overrated, but everything else was worth it!

    Fun place! I suggest you check the website beforehand to see what special activities they are offering at the different times.

    Don't waste your money on the 4D movie. Bad movie accompanied by a theater full of screaming kids who do not appreciate the 4D effects, seat vibrations, or annoying air puffs on your neck. Movie fail.

    The employees are friendly, the place is clean, and everything is really beautiful. I loved touching sharks and sting rays!

    If you hate kids, this isn't the place for you! They're crawling everywhere w/little supervision!! Touch the stingrays, slimy & rascally! Very fun despite the anxiety of too many ppl

    The ticket line is a HOT MESS. It doesn't matter if you go to the "will call" window or just roll up...it's just poorly designed. Get here early (B4 11AM) to avoid the wait in the line for tickets

    Pro tip: The Aquarium Cafe is crowded and expensive — eat at Bain's Deli next door instead. Make sure to get your hands stamped!

    Cross the river for a fun day at Adventure Aquarium. Pet the manta rays in the touch tank and don't miss Button and Genny, their adorable Nile hippos.

    When I went I was with a camp and there must had been at least 10 camps there, so it was extremely crowded. The overall experience was pretty good.

    This place is great for kids and families. So much to see and do. Didn't know it but it is one of the 5 largest aquariums in the country

    Did you know that you and your family can reserve a spot and snorkel in the shark tank? They don't advertise it but there are guided tours offered at the information desk.

    Very kid friendly, lots of interactive exhibits and the window exhibits are eye level for toddlers. Arrive around 10, leave in time for nap.

    Did you know? No other aquariums in the world have hippos on display, and only one other aquarium in the United States has a Hammerhead Shark. Read more

    This place is so much better since its days as the NJ State Aquarium. Little tip: Take the RiverLine down there because driving there leaves a lot to be desired.

    Amazing experience with the life under water..You can not only touch the sharks and sting rays but also swim with the sharks if you want to! Read more

    The place looks a bit run down but it's definitely fun for the kids. You can be done exploring the place in two hours tops.

    Open daily 10-5, but plan to get here before 11:30 to avoid long lines for tickets

    4D show screen was really dark, and the effects felt...old. Shark exhibit was excellent! Experience was enjoyable.

    Perfect for a family day out! There are so many aquatics to see and interact with, the kids will be worn out at the end of the visit.

    Go see the hippos at the end of the day. They know it's feeding time and are most active

    Immediately after entering, stop at the info desk for a free ticket for the "top of the tank" tour.

    If you want to avoid crowds, come during the week. Unless its summertime, then it's ALWAYS crowded.

    Fun for kids, if you're willing to shell out the 22 bucks for adults and 17 for kids

    Their website said to arrive after one o'clock because of school field trips....listen to them! It was so much nicer after hundreds of kids left.

    Arrive before 12:30pm or after 2pm if you want to avoid the crowds.

    Overpriced for the experience. Rude people and poor crowd control. Baltimore National Aquarium any day.
