    Love this place so much, I saw a lot of fish and SouthAmerica animals. Amazing place to stay with family and kids~, much better than the aqurium I went to in San Fransisco. I can’t believe those animals were keep so well in here, they look very healthy. The ticket is only 12 dollars(I’m a student, regularly like 15), and I pretty much will spend my day in there, I’ll go there again~

    One word sums this place up nicely, Crowded! They made this new location bigger, but it seems like that was just so they can fit more people in it! The displays are basically the same thing as the old location and there was no strategic thought in the layout of this place. It really isn’t worth the price. You can literally look at everything in about 1 1/2 hours. They have a few things that are worth seeing once, but you will probably find yourself frustrated with the crowds and illogical layout.

    Very nice place but also pricey for how much time you spend there. It took us about 1 1/2 hours to see everything and that was taking our time and even looking at a few things twice. We have a stroller and it was easy to maneuver. Our youngest could see the fish very well from the stroller. We went on a Wednesday so it wouldn’t be as crowded and it wasn’t bad. I’ve heard that weekends are very crowded and hard to see the exhibits. Would have given 5 stars if it wasn’t so expensive. I was expecting to spend several hours there with how much it cost.

    I am a fish and wildlife enthusiast so I was really excited to visit the Loveland Living Planet Aquarium. If you have visited other “Larger” aquariums like the Denver or Georgia Aquarium then you may be slightly disappointed with its size. That said, this “little brother” of an Aquarium was really nice and had a lot going for it.I went on Saturday July 19th, 2014 which is just a few months after reopening in this new location. I arrived at 10:30am and it was already fairly busy but the parking lot was not yet half full. It steadily got busier as time went on but it WAS Saturday. My recommendation would be to plan out your visit time for when it would be less busy like a weekday around opening. I read most of the previous reviews and many of them are from a year or two ago at the previous location and the rest are the “silly people that went the first week or opening day.” Their biggest complaints were “too crowded” and “many unfinished exhibits.” But that my friends is why you don’t go opening week!I waited and it was well worth the wait. This is still a new attraction and for those of you who know anything about live animal habitats and especially aquariums, it takes lots of time to “season” an environment before it is ready to support animal life. At this point there were only a “few” empty habitats but it wasn’t too noticeable. The fish were healthy and seemed happy and content with their environments. I have to say I enjoyed seeing simple Tetras and Platys (and babies!) in a stream where probably 99% of the people had no idea that there were even fish in there!My favorite locations were the “Journey to South America” and the “Ocean Explorer” exhibits. They also had some pretty cool notable enclosures that included a “Tide Pool” with rising and lowering water levels and a touch pool with rays and small SHARKS!The Shark Tunnel was a highlight as was the viewing room just outside the tunnel. If you are looking for a nice relaxing area to watch the fish and sharks this is the place to be. There is good amphitheater like seating and relaxing music that really sets a good mood and tone for the exhibit. My personal favorite area was the “Journey to South America” exhibit where you see creatures from the fresh waters of the Amazon. This is a nice area located in the big round corner seen from the highway. If you have ever watched “River Monsters” you will also enjoy seeing the HUGE Arapaima, Pacu, and Arowana! The Caiman exhibit was still closed in this area but it should be nice when it opens.The staff seemed happy, available, and knowledgeable.As for the Value and the Price, tickets are around $15 which I felt was reasonable just because it takes an incredible amount of resources to run an establishment like this. It is difficult and also not cheap to maintain large aquariums and especially the salt water exhibits. Some may argue with me on the price and its okay, but I felt it was overall worth it. I even bought the annual pass as I plan on coming back to see the unfinished exhibits as well as see the “evolution” of the existing ones. Overall Feelings:Its still a new attraction and will need time to “season.” It is a little busy but plan your visit to avoid crowds. Price was acceptable and in my opinion worth it. The Building and Habitats are really nice and maintained.

    My wife and I went on April 30th. We loved our time at the aquarium! I’d say 90% of the exhibits were completed. (Most of the exhibits that are still being worked on are for fish like bass, trout, and local fish that aren’t a big deal to us, we do look forward to going back and seeing the octopus)We spent about an hour and a half walking through the huge building and looking at all the fish, penguins, otters, and hundreds of other critters. We were very entertained the whole time. We went on a Wednesday afternoon, and the crowds were very small. Sure, we had excited little kids push us out of the way (once) to see the animals, but we didn’t let it bother us. I would recommend going on a weekday during school hours! You won’t regret it!
