Get married at the Adventure Aquarium!
Besides picking each other to get married to, picking the Adventure Aquarium as our venue was the best decision we made for our wedding! Peter was great to work with and always answered our emails quickly. We were pleasantly surprised at all of the menu options we had and they were all delicious. Darlene, the bridal attendant, and Rose, the catering manager, were both lovely to work with the day of and took great care of us. The Ocean Realm Theater was a stunning backdrop to our ceremony, and the South Seas was a unique space for our cocktail hour and reception. We lucked out and had good weather, so our guests were able to enjoy the views of the Philly skyline from the balconies. Shout-out to Liberty the penguin, who delighted our guests during cocktail hour too!Sent on 06/27/2019

Awesome venue professionally done
My daughter just had her wedding there. I was so impressed with how professional everyone was. It made my life so much easier. They pay attention to detail including an amazing attendant who was there the whole time. If a lot of out of area guests I would strongly encourage getting a bus. Luanne Bohen from Tulip Hill weddings helped tremendously in navigating the whole process. The food was amazingSent on 06/19/2019

I just got married at the Adventure Aquarium and let me tell you... they were able to pull off the absolute best day of my life. Not only that, but my main contact, Peter Patane, made everything so seamless. He was patient, kind, attentive, and flexible to say the least. The food was incredible, the experience was unforgettable, and the coordination was spot on. Do your self a favor, and get married here!!!Sent on 06/20/2019

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
