The aquarium is clean & definitely kid friendly. If you are bringing your little ones to the aquarium, it won't take you long to get through the whole thing. I'd say about a half hour, 1 hour max. The aquarium is located in the largest outlet mall in Arizona.

My husband grew up in Monterey, California home to one of the worlds best aquariums. I knew this aquarium was not going to be as impressive but when I discovered it was in a mall and located across the hall from Lego Land, I became concerned that it was meant for young children. It was definitely geared toward them, but... More

We visited Sea Life Aquarium Arizona during a recent birthday trip to Arizona. We were celebrating my husband and my daughter's birthday. We headed to the aquarium for a Friday afternoon activity to beat the heat wave we found ourselves in! I was impressed off the bat that Sea Life had a AAA discount which immediately brought out admission price... More

So for the money I spent here I was a little disappointed because the place is tiny and you can see everything within a hour. But it's good for little kids because they enjoy looking at the turtles and little fishes. My little one was excited for dory and finding Nemo (:

I was skeptical because it is located in a Mall, but it is actually a really nice aquarium. My toddler and I both loved it. Staff was super friendly. They have a playground as well, and you can go back and play as many times as you want on the day of your visit.

We visited the aquarium with my family - 7 adults and 3 toddlers. The aquarium was full of things to see, great experience and so glad I didn't pay attention to other reviews that I'd seen that it was small. Better than the other aquarium near there that we visit while visiting AZ family in February. Great experience.
