What people are saying about Ripley's Aquarium of Canada
My main recommendation of improvement - We booked tickets, with a resulting printed voucher on line, and were told to go to the guest services area, which was correct but when we showed what we were holding they sent us to a wrong line. We of course were in the minority compared to the masses that were pointed to the right line/desk. It was not a huge issue but every set of circumstances are important to some degree. This should be corrected in your training of those pointing people to proper locations. It did not unduly harm our experience that much. Once we began the tour, it was excellent.
We purchased express, skip the line, anytime entry tickets and went in the early evening, so it was relatively uncrowded. It was not as big as the Monterey Bay Aquarium, but extremely well-done and perhaps only second to MBA. The displays were outstanding and visually very gratifying. The number of species of sharks, rays and other fish was outstanding. Some of the largest specimens I have ever seen anywhere. Very worthwhile excursion and a MUST SEE on your visit to Toronto. Have dinner at the 360 Restaurant at the CN Tower adjacent to the aquarium.
We are not young, our kids are adults and have moved away, but we enjoyed every minute. There was so much to see. My favourite part was the moving walkway where we enjoyed watching the fish, the sharks and the turtles swimming over and all around us. There were plenty of places to sit and rest throughout but the seats weren't out of the way. We could still see various tanks and events when sitting. I loved every minute of my visit.
It was a very satisfying exploration of the underwater kingdom that thrills the senses as well as educates. I loved that great play areas and hands on experiences are provided for children and tgatvwashrooms are provided on every level. Watching the sharks swim overhead was amazing.
Will return at a later hour next time when less children and less noise. Other than that it was great. We had an Autistic child with a service dog. Treated very well, ushered in by one of your staff.. amazed at the technology behind it all...great seeing the machinery
