Where-To-Go Wednesday - Adventure Aquarium

What - Adventure Aquarium

Where: 1 Riverside Drive
            Camden, New Jersey

Who: All Ages

Our view: There is much to see and do at Adventure Aquarium as the Aquarium is quite large.. If you have younger kids who get bored easily and or tired of walking around, you might want to try a smaller aquarium. However, older kids will enjoy Adventure Aquarium. Aside from the various fish on exhibit, there are Hippos, Penguins and Sea Turtles. A variety of options are offered for upclose adventures with Hippos, Penguins, Sea Turtles or even Sharks. These do cost extra, however, and are quite pricey. However, there are unique adventures that are included with the cost of a regular aquarium ticket as well, such as the opportunity to pet stingrays and sharks which is actually not as scary as it sounds. You can also observe the feeding of Hippos, Turtles, Penguins or even Stingrays. Special free events are offered which may be for a day at a time such as Turtle Story Time or a week or more at a time such as Turtles: Journey of Survival, a special turtle exhibit which is appearing through March 24. The Aquarium is open all year round from 10:00 to 5:00. Holidays and summer is typically the busiest time. Weekdays during April, May and June can be busy too as a lot of schools take class trips to the aquarium during these months. Basic tickets are $24.95 for 12 and over, $17.95 for 2 -12, and free for under 2. Combo tickets which include a 4D theater experience are $27.95 for 12 and up and $20.95 for 2 -12. If you are going to be staying in the Philadelphia area and/or visiting a number of attractions in that area, a Philadelphia City Pass gets you admission to six popular Philadelphia attractions at a discount including Adventure Aquarium. Special note: if you like baseball and you go the Aquarium during the baseball season, Campbell's Field, Home of the Camden Riversharks of baseball's independent Atlantic League is located right next door to the Aquarium.
