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

    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.

    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.

    Complete waste of time and a ridiculous amount of money, make the trip to Baltimore to see a real aquarium.

    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.

    Do Zone D first — the shark tunnel gets more crowded as the day goes on!

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

    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.
