  • This place is awesome!! From the parking lot to the floor there was always an attendant helping me and my husband with anything we needed; making sure we had food to eat with a drink in hand at all times!! The food was delicious and plentiful. All the guests are still talking about how full and satisfied they were. Plus they got to enjoy the Ocean Relm while partying! The catering rep, Stacey Soper, was always available to answer any questions. Usually most reps disappear and pass you off to staff after the check has been cut, but she even waited until we arrived to give us her blessings and put us in the good hands of her assistant, Donna. I could go on and on about how wonderful this place is, but I will end this by saying if you want to have an unforgettable and enchanted reception that looks like it cost a million bucks, the Adventure Aquarium is the place to choose!

  • Honestly, I can't say enough good things about Stacy Soper and the rest of the staff at Adventure Aquarium. Stacy was fantastic and super accommodating all the way through our planning process. She seemed to always know the right things to push us and the things to let us decide for ourselves. I don't think our day would have been as amazing as it was without her guidance. As for the day of the event, the venue is absolutely unique and Manny was "Johnny on the spot" with literally everything we needed. Our family and friends have not stopped talking about how much fun they had. We even made it into many of their Christmas cards, as they updated their family/friends on the year they had... and how much fun they had at our wedding! Great value for everything you get, and your guests will not stop talking about it for months on end!

  • Everything was perfect. The food was great. The pricing was great. No need for decorations because you have the skyline outside and the shark tanks inside. Everyone had a blast and a few people even spoke about getting remarried there!

  • When we first got engaged, we didn't even have to look twice to have it here. The value was great considering it is a vendor AND an aquarium. We wanted something more for our guests besides a dull ballroom; we wanted them to have something to do besides looking at a dance floor all night. Not only do you get to see fish during the cocktail hour and dinner, but you have so many places to explore; guests can see the Philadelphia skyline and have access to the top portion of the aquarium! The food was also amazing and I am not saying that because I am biased; you also do not even have to pay for a tasting, which is required at some places! The vendor coordinator also works really well for what you need as well. The whole experience here was positive in all areas and our guests left SO happy! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!

  • Their service is unparalleled! They really took care of us the whole night and the venue was absolutely beautiful when we arrived. Your guest will think that you spent a whole lot more money then you actually did based on the appearance and service that they will receive. The pricing here is very reasonable for what you actually get from them opposed to what other competitors offer. Please do not hesitate to book your event here. You wont regret it. We would really love to relive the night if we could. The night was absolutely flawless! Thank You, Justin & Jamie (Wedding Date: 9/23/16)

  • The staff at the aquarium was beyond expectations. When I showed up the day before to drop alllll of our decor off, I was hesitant. I had a vision in my head and was unsure if the final result would be everything I had hoped for. The guy who was there to help us along the way kindly listened as I tried to explain. When I arrived on Saturday before the ceremony and I walked into the ballroom, I literally started crying. It looked even more perfect than I had imagined. The staff even added little teal fish that matched my colors! All of my worrying was for nothing - the staff did an incredible job putting it all together. As the day continued, I become more and more impressed with the venue and staff. I didn't think to add vegan meals for two guests... but they were created as soon as I asked and the guests were able to eat a delicious meal. I can't remember the name of the woman who was attending to myself and my groom but I was also so impressed with her! She was so helpful and ... Read more

  • We had a few problems e night of our wedding, which I was not very happy with, but I believe if Chezerah had been available for the whole night, everything would've gone smoothly. It was unfortunate that she had been planning our wedding for a year and last minute had to have emergency surgery. The woman who replaced her was definitely not qualified for e job at all. However most of the things I was upset about we're things that the guests never noticed. Except for the fact that we were supposed to have pasta for our vegetarian guests, which was never brought out so they were only able to eat salad for dinner. Overall this was an amazing place, we could not have picked a better place to suit our personalities. And most of our guests were absolutely amazed since it is not very common to see

  • I had an amazing wedding at Adventure Aquarium. It was truly incredible. The staff the day of were wonderful. Very accommodating to me and they were very nice. The food was delicious, not your typical wedding food. But, there were quite a few things that didn't go as smooth as I would've liked. I won't go into them because the guests had no idea, but I did want to elaborate on why I would give the aquarium only 4 stars. The coordinator was kind of difficult to work with. It may have just been a conflict in personality. She always emailed me back in a timely matter and answered my questions, which was nice. Something that was off-putting to me was when we were choosing the menu, I wanted risotto as one of the the sides and I was told it would be an extra $3 per plate. That seemed kind of ridiculous when we are already paying $170 per plate. I should add that nowhere on the menu did it state that the risotto was an upgraded side item, and the price felt made up.

  • My husband and I didn't want another boring ballroom wedding. We wanted a wedding people would be talking about for years to come. We looked at a few unique venues that were mostly on the waterfront, but we kept coming back to aquarium. My parents were wary at first questioning how could an aquarium be a place for a beautiful wedding. They realized how wrong they were when we went to the Bridal show there. The aquarium ended up being the cheapest of the venues we ended up looking at as well, so we were sold. We booked our date with an incentive perk we received from attending the Bridal show, so I would recommend going to one, it saved us a decent amount of money. We had some bumps in the road with planning. The coordinator there wouldn't get back to us for the longest time, but she no longer works there. We ended up working with Toni, she did a fantastic job working with us, we only had one hiccup with alcohol, but we got over it. The day of the wedding I showed up early to see all my... Read more

  • I wanted a location that both my husband and I would love. when he saw the currents ballroom he acted like a little kid and I knew it was perfect. We were quite tight with money which I was worried about but they have an option of having the wedding earlier from 11:30-4 where I could have fewer guests and customize it a bit more to fit our budget. Through out the entire process they were very professional and the space looked amazing. I only gave it a slightly less score on responsiveness because at points we did have trouble getting in touch with the coordinator Stacey. All in all it was an amazing wedding and in the end everything was perfect. The guest buzzed about how amazing the food was and the environment was wonderful and unique.

  • I loved my wedding day and I will say that most of the guest did not know about the mistakes that were made, so that is why I will make this rating above a 3. However, I did spend 18 months planning the event so I noticed every little detail that was done incorrectly and it does bug me a bit. First, I had a wonderful wedding planner that I met with multiple times, but the way they do it at the aquarium is that the event coordinator that you meet and discuss your plans with is not the same person that is there the night of your wedding. Plus she resigned 1 month before my wedding, so I feel like there was a lot of lost communication. This is not the aquarium's fault, but we got there early to have photos done and Camden was having rolling black outs so the 30 minutes I was supposed to be having the tank photos taken and the first 15 minutes of my cocktail hour were without power. They had some lighting they provided so that people were not tripping over things, but all the tanks ... Read more

  • When my husband and I got engaged we knew exactly where we wanted to get married but feared that the Aquarium might have been out of our price range. We were pleasently suprised to learn that the Aquarium is extrememly affordable and they work with you to create the dinner that you want! Stacy was available 24/7 to answer all of our questions, especially in the few weeks prior to the event. She communicated well with me which help when it came down to the last few days. She sent contracts on time and was very responsive and helpful. The food was amazing. The caterer is Aramark which did make us nervous at first but the food was 5 star quality. The only comment/complaint we had was that during the private cocktail hour for the bridal party/bride/groom we wish there would have been more food served. It was only when we saw wedding pictures did we learn that during the cocktail hour there were fruit and vegtables as well as a cheese plate. We did not receive this during our priv... Read more

  • I had so much to write that it wouldn't all fit. So I'll try and summarize my final bill didn't match what I was quoted and I never received an explanation even after asking multiple times, I got so frustrated that I just paid it since my wedding was only 4 days away at this point and I didn't have any more time to worry about it. my ceremony was outside I was promised that staff would be outside to direct my guest, more then half my guest ended up wandering inside lost so in my pictures my seats look empty since everyone was aimlessly wandering around. Your charged top dollar for outside because they tell you your paying for the extra staff, I paid but I didn't get any staff. The first row you would think would have been reserved for the parents and immediate family, no the catering manager told people to just sit wherever so my mother and sister didn't even have prime seating for my wedding. The bartender was extremely ignorant to my guest to the point people where afraid... Read more
