We didn’t expect Seaquest Aquarium to be so crowded on our first visit there. Chelsea and I really love looking at the different animals and sea creatures. There is so many different animals to see, feed and even touch.
This place is definitely somewhere you need to plan on staying for more than a couple of hours. I am the type to start having anxiety when it is too crowded. I think Chelsea and I are going to pick days to go when its not so crazy.
We really loved watching all of the different fish swimming around in the tanks. We noticed the tanks didn’t have labels so that was a bit of a drawback as Chelsea kept asking what type of fish they were. I also noticed that some of the tanks were empty. I am wondering if they will be adding more to the tanks. Chelsea and I plan on going back in a couple weeks. Chelsea I really enjoying checking out these different kinds of fish, birds and reptiles. Chelsea really loved the Lorikeets. I really loved feeding the sting rays. Chelsea loved playing the different water activities. They even have games on the floor that the kids can play. There is a section where they can color pictures. There are a lot of benches and areas to sit down and just enjoy the atmosphere.
I was afraid at first to pet the stingrays but the one that I was feeding seemed pretty friendly. It felt weird but I definitely enjoyed the experience. I feel that this place is great for locals and for even tourists that would like to get off of the strip. I tend to avoid the strip because of to many crowds and not enough things to do that is low cost with young children.
Chelsea and I really enjoy going on different outings each week. We mainly spend our time at home, the park, the malls, and at the aquarium. The reason this is only our second time going to the aquarium is because we haven’t been feeling well lately. It seems like we have been rotating who is not feeling at their best or the weather has not been the best so we haven’t been since we went back in the middle of January.
I have a bit of anxiety and don’t really feel that comfortable at places that are really crowded. I felt that the first time we went that the aquarium was pretty crowded but went we went this time it was not bad at all. I felt very comfortable. Chelsea and I really got to enjoy ourselves spending time with the reptiles, birds and sea life that are available to see. There are many rooms to go in and different sections with different types of activities. Chelsea and I saw at least one or two favorites in each room. Chelsea was very excited to see that one of her old teachers Meah was working there. She said that seeing her was the best part of our adventure.
I actually felt feeding the sting rays and koa was the best part of the adventure. I also felt just being with my daughter was great. To feed the animals you have to buy tokens which is an extra cost besides the admissions cost. We actually bought annual passes before the aquarium opened. You can buy the tokens in token packages or buy them 1 by 1. We used 5 tokens during our trip. That was just perfect for us. If you would like to purchase the tokens in packages you must go onto their website and purchase them there. We were able to feed the sting rays 4 times and feed the koa fish once. I just adore the sting rays I love feeding them and petting them. Chelsea loved the little sting ray. It was like playing with her.
We are excited to go back again maybe next week or the week after. We saw that they are already expanding and adding a playground outside at the entrance of the aquarium. It looked like it had a slide and maybe even a splash park. The aquarium is located at Boulevard Mall which is turning into an family entertainment center. They also have John’s Incredible Pizza at the mall. There is a mini golf place, 3D ride, a train and many more activities coming soon.
