Saturday Afternoon ~ NY Aquarium ~ Coney Island



Last Saturday finally I had a chance to visit New York Aquarium in Coney Island.
I always wanted to go but I never had time. Since my friend have a seasonal pass we decided to take our kids and just go. 
I will make a separate post about Coney Island one day too :) 
Wish we cold go week day because the place was crowded ! First We were cruising around and looking for place to park the car.  Then We went in without waiting in line ( thank you pass).
As soonest you come in you have this humangest tank on your right side. It is huge and it have a lots of different kinds of fish in it. then either you go outside or you go down corridor and see more aquariums. The first room have three small tanks, second have another three  and the third have also three and then ... you go outside. Really? one huge tank and then nine small and that you call Aquarium.... ok, moving on.
Outside you can see Sea Lions, Otters, Walrus Penguins and then the sea creatures I was most excited about - Sharks :) 
And again I was disappointed... The water in a shark tank was green and you could barely see them. 
I think there was 4 spices of sharks. It was kinda cool but nothing exciting . I was expecting more.  
The only fun  part was a Sea Lion show with Diego and Osburne  :) 
Other then that I would not be going back until the Ocean Wonders is build. 
Someone told me that they didn't fully rebuild after we were hit by Super-storm Sandy in 2012.
Another thing, bring your own food and drinks! the prices are out of the world! Small cup of ice cream coast me almost $6! ( you will Sophia holding it in one of the  pictures), water and soda priced $3.50 plus tax so it come up to around $3.81! per bottle! Insane... same with hot dog and pretzels ...
