I’ve been to many aquariums and have seen many styles. What sets the SEA LIFE, located in American Dream, apart from other aquariums is the design. The design of the aquarium is striking and brilliant.

There are areas designed as parts of New York and New Jersey, with street signs, bridges and some displays even look like windows of a subway and the large glass tunnel at the end has all sorts of New York icons as the backdrop for the fish. You can spot the fish swimming around the Statue of Liberty, The Empire State Building and “The Babbling Brook Bridge” (Play on the Brooklyn Bridge) are just some of the landmarks we spotted.

SEA LIFE has all sorts of fish and sea animals for visitors to enjoy including sharks, sea horses, jelly fish, stingrays, clown fish and a variety of many other types of fish.

Visitors can learn about and touch eight different species in the interactive touch pool. The touch pool educators are there to answer any questions and offer information on the sea creatures.

I love seeing the face of stingrays. We got to see and enjoy the faces of the stingrays as they swam on the sides of the large glass pool.

The ocean tunnel is immense and fascinating to walk through. We spotted many types of fish, sharks and sea creatures.

Upon leaving the Ocean Tunnel the little ones got to enjoy themselves on a climbing structure made for children up until 4’10. Socks are required for climbing (Socks are sold for $1 a pair in the adjoining gift shop).

SEA LIFE is located right near Legoland and combination tickets can be purchased at a discounted price.
