Great day out. The kids loved it, especially the touch pool.

The previous time we had visited was extremely busy and crowded. This visit was much more pleasant and the kids could see more and be interactive. The touch pool was a favourite with the starfish. Great experience that you can't get anything like it anywhere else.
