I have been to this aquarium on three different times. All three visits had the same things (except for the turtle part). I do like how you can come in and out until a certain time! But the aquarium is quite small and the price is pretty large even if you go with your school. I wish that their was more to see and I understand its in a mall but the price is a bit high for what you get. I love going to see the turtles and chocolate chip starfish though! I just wish you would get more for what you pay for. I also would like to add when I went with my school we were told we would have a behind the scene tour included and when we went it was an extra cost when they didn't mention that before.
This place was great. I found the place entertaining even as an adult. Sea life has many viewing angles installed directly for children. Some of these viewing ports give the explorer the "inside" aquarium view. I would also suggest that sea life seems for entertaining than the learning focus of other aquariums. I believe that is why is costs more than those other places. The fact that this aquarium is in the mall should lead you the same conclusion without even visiting.
Great, inexpensive, family fun. Take the behind the scenes tour, it's worth it. Make a day out of you visit to Concord Mills. We always visit the aquarium then do our shopping and dining. We walk back through to see our favorites again in the aquarium before leaving for home. Staff is so helpful and kind to everyone!
Nice aquarium for the price! It has a bit of an immersive aspect by having a cartoon character teach you about the exhibit as you "start your dive". You can buy tickets online for cheaper
My G-Baby had a ball, it was just too small. Overall had a good experience. I paid for a behind the scenes tour and guess what... We never got it because they end at 6pm but when we got there NO ONE told us that!!! Seriously??? We found out by the end of our tour when we saw where the tours were to start. We had no idea. Sort of made me a little upset. I won't go back.
