Start with a walk past shallow pools with a variety of small sharks, then make your way into clear tunnels where you will walk through the park's shark aquariums, watching several species of sharks swim around and even over you. The Sharks Underwater Grill restaurant also offers underwater views of the shark aquarium, if you'd like even more time to watch.

The sharks are cool, but somehow I expected more of them. And the tunnel seemed a little dirty. The smartest thing Seaworld did was adding a moving sidewalk through the tunnel to prevent people from stopping and blocking the tunnel from others passing through. - Christy Hall

Pretty lame. It is short and there are not many sharks.It may have been good in its day, but it pales compared to newer aquarium exhibits. - Blake Hoskinson

As a child this and the Shamu show impressed me the most but it has begun to age and look a little worn. - Emily Brux

Really cool exhibit and a nice length. I like the creepy feeling the tunnel gives as well as the other dangerous fish. But what in the world are tree frogs doing here? - David Garey

The tunnel is fun, but it would be better if there were more lights. - Hermione Potter

I really loved the sharks - richard comisky
