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.
