The tunnel of sharks and fish. Hands down the coolest and most mesmerizing part of the experience. The jelly fish area was also really cool.

Loved the aquarium and everything about the experience. Only down was not being able to touch the Sharks due to covid. That was 1 thing we were looking forward to so it was a little disappointing to find out when we got there tht it was closed off.

Beautiful. I will return.
