This is the best aquarium tank I've ever seen, which admittedly is a small portion of aquariums world wide. It seems well maintained and the animals seem well cared for, there is a very large and varied touch pool on the edges where you can touch and discuss with staff star fish, shark eggs and other small sea creatures. The shark tanks are really large and varied, you can view them from above and in glass sides. The tunnel for the glass sides is always crowded but even in peak periods you can navigate it with a stroller easily enough. A real high point of seaworld. - Jocelyn De
