Too crowded for me to return, 2/06/2015

I have been to this beautiful facility many times. However on a recent trip with friends from out of town, we found it nearly impossible to walk through the aquarium with feeling claustrophobic. ... Not sure if they were at maximum capacity but wow it took some of the fun out of it and we left much earlier than normal. Home they get a handle on this because its just not worth the stress to fight through the crowd.

Gorgeous, 6/15/2014

The Ocean Voyager alone is worth the price of admission. If you get a chance, see if the ballroom, above the food court, is unlocked. It has two huge windows, one to Ocean Voyager and the other to... the Beluga tank. Often a good place to escape the crowds and arguably some of the best views in the aquarium. Stay away during peak times, it gets very crowded and eat before you go. The food is expensive and not very good.

Wonderful fish display

This is an amazing place, so colorful and magical and interesting. I wish they didn't have the mamals there - then it would be perferct. The kids love it of course.

Terrible Disappointment

Was so excited to take my son, neice and mother to the aquarium. Other patrons were very rude and you can barely move! You are pushed and jostled and can't get to the exhibits. NOT worth $55.00 for one adult and one child. Plus $10 for parking. I was told that it's not as bad on other days but I just can't imagine since I was also told that it wasn't as busy as usual. We were there 15 minutes and got so fed up we demanded refunds. Next time we will drive the 2 hours up to Tennessee and visit the Tennessee aquarium and enjoy the trip.

Great for out-of-towners

Great place to take friends and family coming in from out of town. A little bit on the expensive side, but worth going to see once.

Great but expect a crowd - no matter what day

Our family has really enjoyed the aquarium. We have a season pass with a infant and toddler. Note: avoid strolles. We use a bjorn for the infant because if you try and manuever with a stroller you can't see anything. We've been on all days of the week and it's busy every day. I feel the weekdays are worse because there are several field trips which create these mobs of people that move in a huge mass. The 3-d movie is a little cheesy but worth seeing if you have kids.

Wonderful!

This is an amazing place to learn about the sea and rivers. There are so many show rooms to see, amazing creatures, all is presented so beautifully. A little crowded on the weekends, but definitely something you donít want to miss!

Awesome Experience

This unique Atlanta attraction provided an awesome experience for out of town visitors. Go in the early morning to see more fish and less people.

Swim with the Sharks?

This aquarium amuses my grandson as tickets to this sight was what he has wanted the last 2 years for a Christmas gift. He visits about every other week with his mom and sibling so the money for a season's pass is well spent. Season passes are the way to go so you can go often and stay only as long as you wish. Very Pricey if you only go one time.

Pretty but Soulless

I had free tickets, which was lucky, because we wouldn't have been able to afford it otherwise. I love animals and wildlife, and really enjoyed the exhibits. I was appalled at the pricing, from the admission to the food to the extras. I would like to see more mention and action concerning Conservation of natural resources.

Whale Sharks!

This is the only place where you can see Whale sharks in captivity. Huge indoor aquarium that has many hands on opportunities. Besides the whale sharks some of our favorites were the cute 3D movie and the funny penguins. This is an attraction we will visit again!

beautiful

you have to go to the aquarium. it's absolutely beautiful and the exhibits are amazing! it does get crowded and, in my opinion, the tank sizes need to be bigger for the animals sake.
