There are some unusual sea creatures I saw here that I’ve never seen before and for that I guess it was worth the huge ticket price of S$29. The tanks here are pretty massive and more impressive than the previous Underwater World at Sentosa. My favourites were the cow fish which was both cow and alien like, and the black spiked sea urchin which reminded me of a character from Tontoro (Miyazaki’s animations).
The biggest downer? The crowds and humoungous DSLRs with flash. It was hard to see much till the crowd at each station cleared. But this was a weekday and non-peak so I figure the weekend must be pretty nightmarish. I can also imagine how serene an emptier aquarium would be. Wish they would restrict the number of visitors for a more pleasant experience. This is what they did at the Harry Potter Exhibition at the Arts Science Museum.
