I remember that my parents took me there when I was about 10 years old. When one of our faerie anniversary friends mentioned it, I thought it would be a great way to get in some Florida fun on the last day of our vacation. Besides all that, the little one loves mermaids.
It was a totally bizarre experience, pretty much terrible especially when the performers took their mermaid tails off. And though the bubbles against the glass during the scene changes were fun, I do not recommend unless you go for some wack sentimental reason.
We have this strange photo of her grandfather sitting next to the mermaid taken over 35 years ago. She's never seen this photo (the grandparents don't remember the photo either) but I swear she enacted almost the same exact pose when seated next to the mermaid - sitting a little bit away from the mermaid and thinking "wtf."
