What people are saying about Atlanta
Some experiences too expensive. It took 15 to 20 minutes to be able to get to some of the tanks to view as the lines were five deep and no one to move people along.
Looked it up online when we got to the aquarium, bought them and walked in. What a nice way to bypass the line of those needing to buy tickets. Will use it Gain.
This was the first aquarium I have attended and I believe that no other aquarium will live up to my experience at the Georgia Aquarium.
To be a nerd, walking into the Georgia Aquarium felt like walking into Dr. Who's Tardis. It seemed so much bigger on the inside as you traveled through the halls to the different exhibits. The whale sharks were spectacular, as were the mantas doing loopdeloops for fun.
We changed our flights home in order to spend a few hours at the Georgia aquarium. It was well worth the time and price, and the skip the line tickets from get your guide.com were downloaded to our phone and worked perfectly.
