What an amazing aquarium! We drove from NC to GA to visit the aquarium -- definitely worth the drive. We had 8am tickets into the aquarium -- although that sounds too early to start your day, I am glad we did. The lines were non-existant and it was not too crowded. Unfortunately, once it grew closer to 10am, the lines increased and so did the crowds. I would have to say the crowds were the only drawback to the place. There was an amazing tunnel to walk through -- glass windows all around and even above you. Being there at 8am, we had the chance to stand there and watch divers swim with the fish while cleaning the windows of the tunnel. Every area had an amazing display of fish. There is even a play area for younger children -- seemed really neat. We didn't get to check it out because it was temporarily closed for cleaning/repairs. They have a food court (no fish served tho! Haha!) with food prices as to be expected (high!). They also offer a short 4-D movie to educate everyone about preserving the oceans and the animals that live there. Movie tickets were expensive (considering it was a 20 minute film, cost was same as going to a regular movie theater for a matinee!) but the movie was cute! For us, it was worth the money just to watch our 4 year old try and figure out how to catch the 3-D fish that floated before him. LOL! Whether you live in GA or not, this is definitely a place to visit!
