It was incredibly clever to see a full jet, tiny vehicle, and submarine used as artifacts for the marine aquarium. It’s fantastic to know that the aquarium has the world’s longest tunnel, as we were informed. But I had a fantastic couple of hours here. The aquarium was excellent, but so was the reptile house.

As you can tell, I believe this site is fantastic. In February, my wife and I went there with our 7 year-old daughter. We were fascinated by the sharks and ray fish. Amazing site with the largest tunnel in the world.
Tickets are pricey, but definitely worth it.
