Constructed in the year 2002, Aquaria KLCC exhibits 60,000 square feet of marine-tertainment delivering a surreal experience (for younger audiences) through its displays of larger than life-sized aquariums that house a selection of sea species. If you keep your eyes peeled, you might spot the sand tiger sharks, green sea turtles, giant Pacific octopuses and giant groupers.

Take your activity in Aquaria to the next level by stepping onto the conveyor belt that leads you into the underwater tunnel to witness exotic aquatic life as they gracefully swim past hovering above you. This attraction tends to be a hit with visitors who tend to loop their experience at least twice during the same visit! So expect some crowd and possibly, brief congestion.
