Easy check in process. We went early and missed all the crowds. For a city the size of Tampa Bay Florida I thought it would have been larger, but the whole experience was very nice. Very nice aquarium.

Not one that really stands out. It really didn’t excite me or my children. It was very crowded and way too many people
