I really like our aquarium. It is smaller than some of the other aquariums that you may have been to, but how many of those aquariums have a splash pad and a bar outside? The annual pass might even be worth it for those who aren't local because of all the discounts from affiliated attractions that the pass holder gets. If you are local and have kids, you should get a pass. The aquarium shares its parking with Channelside and you can catch the Streetcar from here to Ybor or Downtown.
