Milky Way PoolA must-see is an amazing tank filled with 10,000 sardines. Dubbed the Milky Way Pool, this tank was simply mesmerizing to watch. We managed to catch a performance at the tank where lights and music were used to create a kaleidoscopic experience that was simply enchanting to watch.

Dolphin Shows & Penguin Parades

Dolphin ShowsThe kids also enjoyed the dolphin show. There are four showtimes each day and each show lasts for around 15 minutes.

Another interesting sight was the NIXE seal pool. With an acrylic section that rises above the ground, it is a unique opportunity to come face-to-face with these aquatic mammals.
