Great zoo We went as part of our city pass!! We arrived early and we were able to see everything and then go around again to see the holiday lights and see some animals get some holiday treats! They also had some performers and some specialty drinks and food!! Yum!! We had a great time and would go again!!

I love this place. The staff was so friendly. I really enjoyed myself. A lot of the exhibits were informative and fun. I only came for 1 1/2 hrs because based on the reviews I thought it would have been boring. I was so wrong. I am definitely coming back again for a longer time and finishing all the exhibits. I promise you, I was so intrigued time flew by. It only felt like I had been there for 5 minutes.

Love this place! The exhibits are extremely engaging and interesting. I specifically loved the Coral Reef section! The huge windows allows for awesome views and photos of all of the animals. We also checked out a meet and greet talk with one of the African Penguins near the stingray exhibit, which I thought was different/very cute. We didn't try any of the food or extra encounters here, but overall love this aquarium and will be back whenever in the Tampa area.
