    "Iconic Park - Sea Life Aquarium (Orlando, FL)"
    November 2019
    I have taken my kids to various parks, underwater aquarium, etc... but this aquarium didn't live up to reviews which diverted us to visit this aquarium. My 5 year old child kept telling us that he isn't having any fun as nothing new is present for him to see and or explore. The money isn't a concern when family is involved but all agree it was a waste. Limited touch tank (no stingray as advertised, and statements made by staff). It wasn't anything new - extremely limited in Sea life.

    Tip: If you haven't seen an aquarium (walk about) - it may prove to be somewhat ok.

    "Great for small kids (that don’t expect more)"
    June 2019
    We did the toddler time on Tuesday morning. It was adequate for our two year old. Although all they did was read a book to them. Good thing entry was paid. A lot of the same stuff over again but worth the $15

    "A sweet find"
    April 2018
    We weren't planning on coming here. The temperature was too cold to go to the pool so I looked on line and found this place. What a great aquarium!! We took the behind the scene tour for $5. WOW. Our guide was great. Kids can stamp a sheet at different locations and get a prize at the when its filled out. Staff were very knowledgeable. Answered my sons questions with a smile. Great little find.
