Nothing wrong...I liked how everything was laid out ....especially the “jellies” and the hands on experiences but I thought that it would be more diverse climate fish...it mainly concentrated on Florida and not other areas of the world... 3D theater was such a disappointment. The 3D glasses made it difficult to enjoy the true 3D experience.
