UNDER THE SEA – AQUARIUM OF AMERICAS HAS A GREAT VARIETY OF SEA LIFE. THE SHARK FEEDING TIME IS MY FAVORITE. THE STINGRAYS ARE HUGE. AND IF YOU HAVE TIME STOP BY THE IMAX THEATRE, 3-D MOVIE THEATRE. IT'S WELL WORTH THE MONEY.
THERE'S ALSO SPECIAL PACKAGES WITH THE AQUARIUM, ZOO, AND IMAX.
Hands On – This aquarium lets you touch under water creatures. You can see a lot of creatures that you might never have gotton to see. For example the sea horses are extrodinary. I have never seen some of those sea horses. Great place for the family to visit.
Water Water Everywhere – At reasonable prices you won't want to miss such
a treat. It's something that the family can all do
together. You'll want to dress comfortably...
especially shoes.....because there is lots of
Tunnel Vision – The huge plexiglass tunnel that you walk through when first entering the Aquarium of the Americas is unique for seeing the many types of fish that are swimming all around you. If you get there at feeding time, you see divers in the tanks with fish coming to eat from their hands. One of the most enjoyable things is to look at the faces of the young children as they walk through the tunnel. Their eyes seem to get twice as big as they stare at the fish all around them. Don't miss the otters upstairs, they are super cute. And if you want a snack, there is an outdoor patio upstairs where you can munch out and view the Mississippi River. Also next door is the IMAX theater if you have time.
More than fish – The aquarium was wonderful! There are many exhibits which are both informative and fun. I would highly recommend it to anyone of any age. It is obvious that the zoo/aquarium are one of the top 5 in the nation.
