Tips for Families

Keep a close eye on little ones--it's very crowded and there was lots of pushing from older children who weren't being watched as carefully. If hungry, feeding frenzy, the restaurant at the aquarium, is crowded and expensive. They did have a special where you could buy a large pizza for $14...which is what we did. Kids meals, snacks, etc were very overpriced...but the drinks do get free refills. Gift shop--the only exit--is crowded and, as expected expensive. But right outside the entrance to the gift shop is a penny press machine. Makes for an inexpensive souvenir.
