    Great staff, great food and SHARKS!

    We had an amazing time. After meeting with Terry she suggested that the ballroom was a better size for our smaller wedding which was absolutely the right choice. We were able to have the ceremony in front of one of the shark tanks and then they converted the whole ballroom for the reception. The food was great and the staff was very attentive. All in all we stayed a little more on the budget side but if you have the money the sky's the limit there. Very organized and willing to work with whatever theme you have.

    Adventure Aquarium is such an awesome place for your event. I went to several events and it can be casual or extremely elegant and seeing the fish and sharks and other fun things there was an added plus. You can't get that type of entertainment anywhere else. I was extremely impressed. Deborah Carasso Unique Invitations by Deborah
