  • A wonderful day with the family!!! Our young son LOVED all the fishes. The aquarium was well laid out and very educational yet fun. If you go get the timed tickets and plan your time to the shows you want to see. It is very easy to get to from the train which a LOT better than driving. I have to say Ripley’s does an amazing job with all the fish the tanks are clean and the fish all look healthy we especially appreciate the fact that they have a number of stingrays and fish that are rescue.
  • Great place for kids. Lots to check out and some really well thought out enclosures. It’s nice how much interactivity there is. We had a blast and I think we’re due to head back soon, it’s been a while. It can be a bit pricey but there’s usually discounts if you know where to look. We took the train in from Oshawa to avoid parking, worked out great and added to the fun of the day. Fairly educational for all ages, well kept and maintained. A bit dark to navigate if you have issues with vision but I imagine it’s dark for the little creatures comfort and probably helps with viewing the enclosures. Must check out this place if you haven’t been to an aquarium before.
