Loved our visit to the Aquarium of the Pacific. We went on a Saturday and although it was busy, we still had a great time and got to see everything. My kids favorite attraction was the jelly fish tank,where they had a chance to pet them. We got a great deal on our tickets using Rush49. Thais

The tickets to aquarium worked the same day. They were $5 cheaper than the original price. The only thing worried us is the statement on the tix saying we HAVE TO PRINT them. But the worker at the door was actually able to scan the code on my phone no problem.
