Interesting aquarium
kwi 2021 • Pary
My wife and I visited in April and had a very nice time. The displays and fish were interesting. The stingray exhibit was a particular favorite of my wife. Ione of my favorites was the "shipwreck" area where you could sit and take a minute watching sharks pass by, it was nice and relaxing.

The only problem, not the aquarium's fault, were the ignorant people we were forced to share our personal space with. One particular family who, no mater what we tried to do, was always right next to us , even bumping into me several times. We slowed down and they came back through the wrong way, we jumped 3 exhibits ahead, missing some nice looking things, and here they are again looking at the fish and bumping into me. Luckily we were able to give them the slip qt the tiger. 🐅

Rainy Day
kwi 2021 • Pary
Rain was coming and we wanted to do something indoors. What a great place to go. Not to busy on a Tuesday afternoon. We actually stayed for a couple of hours. You could breeze through here in less than an hour but for the cost we decided to take our time, relax on the stone seats and enjoy watching all the amazing creatures of the sea. By the way. Look for the Tiger!!

Also I recommend trying to find some kind of discount. Maybe City Pass. We didn’t and the price was just under $50.00 for two of us. It’s worth it if you spend the time but a discount is always nice

Over-priced, over-crowded, underwhelmed
kwi 2021 • Dla rodziny
My husband and I are both born and raised in CO but it had been yeas since we went to the aquarium (since it was called Ocean Journey). We wanted to take our 3 year old since he is developing an interest in ocean life. I was hoping the experience would be as great as they had been at other places since the pandemic began (DMNS, Denver Zoo, etc.). Boy were we disappointed! I feel like the Aquarium isn’t following any measuring AT ALL to keep people socially distanced, the facility itself clean and sanitized, make sure people are wearing masks or anything to control their occupancy. There were signs posted everywhere about social distancing but there were too many people to even try to do this! Anytime you tried to be 6 feet away from anyone, 8 other people would cram inside the space. I saw 2 whole employees while we were there - one at the Stingray’s and one at the entrance to take temperatures. I understand that a lot of this is also up to visitors to be respectful of the rules but I think it is set up for failure from the get go as it felt like the capacity should be cut in half from whatever “reduced numbers”they are currently operating at. We felt extremely rushed through the whole thing and it took us only an hour to get through the entire thing. For $65.00 plus, $7 for parking, I wanted more. It simply isn’t worth it. If this is how things are with a “reduced capacity” I can only imagine what it will be like once things are back to normal.

Thumbs down yet so much potential
kwi 2021 • Dla rodziny
I took my granddaughters there recently

First. though reservations were required there was no ability to social distance It was crowded! Thankfully everyone was wearing a mask
Why make reservations?
Second. Very expensive and a sense of being herded
through
Third. The best part, the girls totally enjoyed themselves

Great Family Outing
mar 2021 • Dla rodziny
We love going to the downtown as a family. We’ve gone annually since moving to Colorado. It has greatly laid out exhibits, but not to many where you get overwhelmed or bored. Nice move things for an aquarium like a couple tigers. Great place for young kiddos to learn and see exotic as well as native fish and learn about the animals native to Colorado.

Wonderful attraction
lut 2021 • Dla rodziny
Stopped by with family on way to airport from mountains. It’s full of exhibits and interesting things to learn. They have a restaurant, a gift shop. Parking is $7/$8 across the street. Must make reservations (get tickets online). Masks required at the moment. Stingray pool at the end where you can feed and pet them. (The kids’ shirts will get wet so bring an extra if you want) (we ate at Proto Pizza just down the street - phenomenal!!!) It’s about 30min to airport

Worth it!

This is a beautiful aquarium! Each exhibit had amazing colors and a huge variety of fish. There is sgarks, sea horses, jellyfish, and even tigers! I would definitely go see this again!

Excellent Experience + Meet and Greet
lut 2021 • Pary
The aquarium itself is amazing. Great layout, a ton of great animals to see (it’s not just fish), and a great atmosphere. Everything is very well designed and there are many great surprises. Definitely worth the price.

Additionally, I paid extra for a meet-and-greet experience with the sloth. It was an amazing time of feeding, petting, and more. The sloth even painted for us. Just perfect.

Beautiful place but felt very unsafe surrounded by maskless crowds
sty 2021
An exquisitely beautiful aquarium, with exhibits teaching various watery ecosystems and multiple places you can be surrounded by the fish, sharks, rays, barracuda, and more. We especially enjoyed seeing seahorses that looked like bouquets, clustered around seaweed with their tails holding one another. But we did not feel safe there in Covid-19 era. We thought we would: the aquarium staggers timed entry for pre-paid tickets like ours, and the sign out front required a mask for entry -- but I don't recall seeing it also saying that people had to keep them on at all times. And many many many visitors did not wear masks when we were there (6:30 pm Saturday). We were surrounded several times by huge families and friend groups who were bellowing and laughing with noses out or even more often, no masks at all. The staff did not patrol. We honestly hope we survive my husband's 64th birthday excursion. It was the first time we'd been out in a public building in a long time, and due to this experience, it will likely be our last for a long time as well. I'm really sad and hope the management steps up safety standards.
