We go here every year. My kids love this place. We even have a great aquarium here at home that we buy annual passes to and the boys still want to go here when we come. I tend to think that once you have seen it, you've seen it, it doesn't really change much except for the rotating exhibit when you first go in. This year was "the swarm". It was pretty neat. They have a tank of fish called doctor fish that you can put your hands in and the fish will sucker on to your hands, they eat the dead skin. Salons around the world are using these fish for expensive pedicures. I could have sat there all day, I loved it!!
Wanted to tell you all one thing of note, there is a wonderful man named Shannon that works at the aquarium. This guy took a ton of time with our kids showing them all around the aquarium, showing the tricks he has been working on with the octopus, answering all of their questions. The dive team that was working that night also took alot of time to answer the kids questions and tell them all about the sharks and different fish. It really made the trip special for us. If you decide to visit, look Shannon up, he said he is there every day, and he really was the difference between another trip to the aquarium, and a wonderful experience for us!!!!
