A feat of blending immersive theater and science. For stuffy grownups it might be trite, but for anyone for whom magic still lives this should be a treat worth more than admission. No, it doesn't feel academic; it's not supposed to. There's *a lot* to learn, though, and it definitely raised our enthusiasm for learning about aquatic life. The employees really seemed glad to be there. Bring kids, see the mermaids, have lunch (pretty good, not great, and a little pricey, but at a venue that's to be expected), and don't have a schedule nor agenda, bring home a fuzzy octopus (because you've always wanted to sleep with one). Our visit was definitely a top highlight of our trip.

It was okay. I'm not sure if it was worth 20 dollars per person (and 25 at the end of the trip if you want to get the pictures they take of you at the start). The Omaha Zoo has pretty much the same to offer and much more for only 15. Still, it's not a bad place to visit. You get to see all sorts of fish and even feed stingrays.
