Great price

Our trip was great! There was a little confusion about where to get our tickets when we arrived, but everyone was very friendly while helping us. On a side note be prepared to rack over some cash for parking. We parked in the Badin lot next to the aquarium and it costs us $43 for 6 hours!

There wasn't but 2 choices for food and both was way over priced and took 40 minutes to get our order. Parking was ridiculous! $90 for 5 hours. I didnt mind paying over $200 for 10 tickets, souvenirs, food& drinks &pictures for everyone bc i was prepared for that. I had no idea it was gonna be that much for 2 cars to park. Other than parking, i don't regret anything spent bc it was a great trip for me and my family. Thank yall!!

I enjoyed. The only bad part is you have to leave out of the aquarium to get to the theater. It should be all connected.
