This gigantic aquatic attraction is a great place to spend the day with children. Adventure Aquarium (formerly the New Jersey State Aquarium) is home to a vast amount of marine life. Marvel at exotic sea creatures from around the world in one of the many semi-aquatic and freshwater exhibits. Visit the 20 sharks and other animals in the Shark Realm, a 40-foot tunnel where sharks literally swim over your head- you can even touch a shark! The West African River experience brings the wonders of another continent to you. Many other exhibits allow you to get up close to some of the most amazing sea life in the world. The bravest adults and children over 12 can even swim with sharks and sting rays if they dare!
