The Aquarium is good to spend time with your kids. My Son of 6 years loved it. With the explorer ticker you are allowed to see the inside of the Aquarium as how the maintain or how they run this Aquarium. You can feed the fish for a cost or you can see how they feed the fish. They take you for a glass bottom boat ride(which they call as submarine) in the Aquarium. Over all it is good to visit and approx 3-4 hrs required for this activity.

The aquarium and the underwater zoo was a great experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the visit. It was worth taking the Explorer ticket as we could have a look at the breeding and feeding stations as well. Well explained by the team there on the ground. The best part was the glass boat ride which is worth the wait (had to wait for an hour due to heavy rush). The be able to look at Sharks and fishes underneath your seat through the glass was thrilling.

Preferred this to the Atlantis Aquarium.

We preferred this Aquarium experience to the Atlantis Aquatium, mainly due to the interactive element of the Underwater Zoo. The ticketing experience needs work. As even though you have a skip the line ticket, you have to queue to change your mobile app ticket to get the ticket you can enter with. During a busy period this ticketing experience is terrible. As was the case with our Burj Khalifa experience which was absolutely shocking.
