    It's a bit humid.

    It's smaller than you might imagine, and bring a sweater.

    I like the layout of this place but it's a little small and expensive.

    There is tunnel....through a giant tank of water !

    Good aquarium for little kids with short attention spans

    The excitement for the kids is worth the money. Great time for adults as well.

    People leaving tips about it being too expensive clearly don't understand how much money it costs to maintain an aquarium. Great place! Highly suggest visiting! (Also, it's only $18, cheapskates.)

    Great place to visit my 3 year and my 9 month old loved it

    Quite pricey for the time it takes to go through. Made it sound like they had more sharks in the "shark tunnel"

    Tickets are half the price online!!

    My kids (3 & 6) had a great time here. It's a little expensive, but if you buy the tickets online or at Costco it's not too bad. We spent about 4 hours here, so it was a fun half-day activity.

    Find coupons on line. It's local and convenient but not too much to see. Nice for a date or hangout with friends if you are new in the area. Keeps you out from the Arizona heat. More for children.

    Don't miss Fry, the other sea turtle here besides Ziva, in the shoreline part of the aquarium.

    Greg Piazza · May 19, 2013
  • Tempe Tourism

    They have a new jellyfish exhibit opening that is incredible. Make sure you stop by and check it out. Ziva and Fry, their rescued sea turtles, are a must see. A great place for birthday parties.

    Good luck dodging the old people with flash cameras in the poor fishys face!

    Not bad for an aquarium in a mall in Arizona. They do need to update their exhibit signs and make it easier to know the names of the fish in the tank.

    Thanksgiving Day Adults get in for Kids Price when you purchase your tickets at the Admissions counter. Enjoy a fun craft activity and watch creatures eat their Thanksgiving meals, starting at 10:15am

    Expensive for 30ish minutes of sealift

    My family of adults loved this along with family from out of town. Great place to go - <3

    Great place for kids. My boyfriend and I had fun and took lots of pictures. My only problem is that octopus did not have enough room, it should have been kept in a bigger tank.

    Tessa Lawson · August 1, 2012

    There are 2 lines, poorly marked, for people who bought tickets already or are waiting to buy tickets. If you arrive when both are empty and line up in the wrong one, Phoenix residents get mad &snarky

    This Father's Day Dads get in for the Kids Price! Dads can purchase their tickets at the Admissions counter on Sunday, June 17th and receive admission for just $12- a savings of $6!

    This is a relatively inexpensive gem that is local. Forget going out to the Wildlife Experience unless you really want to drive halfway to LA.

    You don't have to travel far to have fun!

    Definitely get a membership! It will save you money in the long run!

    Brand new rescued sea turtle has arrived! She's adorable! She's a green sea turtle named Ziva.

    Never pay full price!

    Most of the reefs are artificial and they don't have a lot of live coral, but they do have a wide variety of saltwater fish.

    Brian Jambor · August 19, 2011
  • Amanda S.

    We have the membership and think it's worth the value. It's nice to go whenever and for however long we want to. My 2 year old loves it.

    Gift shop has some decent pirate merchandise -- most items are $8+

    Use some coupons and take a visit! Its not as huge as the Wildlife World Zoo but it is very convinient to NOT have to drive all the way to the Zoo. Much easier to come to the mall

    Bethany B · April 12, 2011
  • Jason B.

    Address is 5000 not 500.

    Jason Brown · April 10, 2011
  • Jordan G.

    A little pricy but you can find coupons in the mall food court. Great place to take the kids when it's 100+ degrees out! Good selection of fish and predators. Check out the cow fish near the end!!

    Jordan Griffin · March 12, 2011
  • Jeremie L.

    Geeze folks, quit your whining. There's a damn aquarium in Tempe attached to a mall. If you want low priced fish, go to Lon John silvers... Wah wah

    At the Tropical Bay of Rays area, people can bend down to take a closer look at the rays and small sharks through the tank's inner windows - these make you feel as if you're inside the tank.

    Marcia Q. · February 19, 2011
  • Tempe Tourism

    Buy your tickets in advance at the food court kiosk or online. You can move into the fast track line and enter quickly.

    Tempe Tourism · February 14, 2011
  • Todd L.

    Make sure you use online coupons

    It's the greatest zen spot in Tempe. It does cost more than the McDonalds Playland, but you can't have everything...

    Jeremie Lederman · November 11, 2010
  • Jeremy M.

    Save your money.

    Jeremy Mccollum · September 10, 2010

    Get there early, long line wait just to get in.

    Szoke Steve · August 2, 2010
  • Randy D.

    Way overpriced, you can buy tickets online and save some money $$$$

    Randy Deluxe Candy · July 24, 2010
  • Richard L.

    Buy tickets online the day before. The lines are very long for tickets.
