Sea life Centre?

Has anyone been to the Sea Life Centre at Marne Le Vallee beside the outlet centre? We have three children aged 8, 5 and 1. Would you reccomend it for a break from the Park and a change of scenery?

Thanks
Cris

I went a few years ago. It's pretty much the same as the ones we have in England. It was good but I thought at the time "I could do this back home, I wish I was in the parks/Paris".

We haven't been, but I haven't read good things about it on here - nothing awful just not particularly positive. The signs are almost all in French I believe too. (Not that I blame them, but might make it less enjoyable for you.)

I've not been myself but my friend who went on free tickets that came with her package said exactly the same as you.

We're in Ireland so don't have a Sea Life Centre here (that I know of anyway!) so we haven't been but I think we'll give it a miss. If it's not a big 'WOW', then we'll probably only wish we were in the park.
Thanks so much for all your replies!

We haven't been to Lahinch Daiseyirl but have been to the Galway acquarium a few times and I think they're about the same size. Defo don't want to make the effort for such a short experience.
Thanks for that! I guess there's a reason I haven't heard others rave about the place!!!

We went there. My DS liked it, I thought it was ok, nothing absolutely fantastic, but we were having a day off from going to the parks as we were there for 8 nights, so went for a day of shopping and a look around, so we went to sealife park. We went to Disneyland at Anaheim in December and we went to Legoland for the day and they have a sealife park there. I remember walking around there and thinking the one in Paris was better, but it was about 11 months inbetween the visits to the different Sealife parks.

Would we go again, probably as my son loves places like that. Was it somewhere I would say "Don't miss it".... no. But it was ok and if you are visiting and your children are into that sort of thing, then they will probably enjoy it.

My DH and went there a few years back (albeit without LO's!) and we'd gone round it in 20 mins and felt like we should go round again to get our moneys worth! It's nothing that you can't do over here ~ and there are better ones here! If you LO's are really into that sort of thing then it may be a nice escape from the parks but otherwise I don't think it's worth it. ~ Unless of course they have seriously expanded in recent years in which case ignore me!! Have a great trip whatever you decide to do!

Red face Sealife centre

We went back in nov and didn't think it was worth the money. As previously posted it didn't take very long to get round and did think we could be doing this at home! Our dds were 3 and nearly 2 normally they enjoy that sort of thing but seemed to be more interested in the 1 euro pay as you go rides in the gift shop and getting back to Disney. It is very easy/cheap to get to on the train and there are loads of shops and restaurants around it So probably would be good for a break for longer stays at Disney ( just don't go on a Sunday as none of the shops/restaurants are open)
