What people are saying about Phoenix

When I read average time was 10 mn I worried that it wasn't such a good place to go. Those visitors must not like fish. We spent over an hour. It was great! Our favorite was the surround tank. Well worth the trip.

It was perfect! Big enough to hold a three year old attention, but not overwhelming. We all thoroughly enjoyed it!

It was my first time there and it was a pretty cool experience, I would definitely go again.

The aquarium was nice and the kids were excited and had a great time.

It was small but yet enough for my 4 year old. Definitely recommend.
