The Adventure Aquarium ( http://www.adventureaquarium.com ) is located in the waterfront of Camden, NJ just across the river from Philadelphia. When you come, you will have fun as you view all sorts of sea creatures through all 5 senses.
One of my favorites was the weird fish exhibit (I'm sure there is a more formal name for it). There are flat screen TVs placed by the tanks showing you how this seemingly friendly fish can attacks its prey. The rock fish and piranhas are a couple in the collection. It's like watching a horror flick, you know what's going to happen, but just couldn't look away.
My other favorite was the Hippo tank. You have to visit Button and Genny, better yet, bring the family! They literally go face to face with the guests from their tank. Did you know they can kill lions by trampling them?
Finally, the aquarium also offers a tunnel that allows you to walk through the shark tanks. Upstairs, you can pet the smaller sharks and other creatures too many to name.
It was very exciting experience and I am definitely coming back when in the area! But be forewarned:
1) Timed admission: Make sure you arrive early or call ahead and purchase tickets for will call. Otherwise, you can wait in line for 45 minutes to buy tickets.
2) Admission is $18.75 adults and $13.50 for kids (as young as 3). But it is really well worth it.
3) Don't plan on staying late in Camden.
