The Dallas World Aquarium
Discover a South American rainforest filled with monkeys, colorful toucans, crocodiles, manatees and otters. The aquarium portion of this popular attraction features 85,000 gallons (321,760 liters) of saltwater containing marine life from around the world. Giant turaco, Three-toed sloths, Weedy and Ribbon sea dragons are but a few of the intriguing animals on display. An outdoor lagoon-like exhibit features Black-footed penguins.
i sort of disliked the price of the foods at the restraunt up above the crocidiles and peranas, in the canopy part. I loved the animals (especialy the panther!), my favorite sea animal was the shark! I had a great time their and am going back this year for spring break!!!!
Upon arriving to this place we were greeted by a symphony of chirping birds. We paid for our admission ticket for the whole day and grabbed a field guide and we were entering a whole other world. I had never been to anything quite like it. There was monkeys,birds,alligators,fish,a walk through tube of sharks, manatees, turtles,flamingos,the largest fresh water fish, rabbits, owels,jaguars,cheetahs,snakes,penguins and so much much much more. I would recomend it to anyone this place has it all.The stroller comment must be out dated I didn't step upon ONE set of steps their were ramps EVERYWHERE.
dont' bother taking your infants or toddlers if they must ride in a stroller because you have to wait for the elevator to move to other floors. Plus, the walkways are barely wide enough for two-way traffic with the stroller. The place was way too crowded. Do they keep a count of how many tickets they sell a day? What is the maximum capacity because they definitely hit it on the day we went. It would have been more enjoyable if we weren't always stuck in a traffic jam. I have to say, people can be rude! If I ever go back, it will be a school day during the week. If that doesn't work, then we will never go back. If we paid this much $$$, then shouldn't we be able to enjoy at our own pace?
I took my 3 1/2 year old and my two 13 year old cousins on a Thursday. We had lots of fun. My son was so excited about all of the animals! Its the perfect size...not too big, not too small. Its much more that just an aquarium, you'll be suprised at home many animals are there! I especially loved the sloth and the pigmy marmosets (so cute)! I was suprised at the price when I was buying the tickets but it turned out to be worth it for us! You should go if you have the chance!
This aquarium is rather small. You just need about an hour and a quarter to look around this place.
The whole place has translucent white walls and roof, so there's natural light. The walk-through begins with at the canopy level of a simulated tropical rain forests and the walk-way somewhat spirals down. They have a good collection for their size. This place is not just an aquarium... they also have primates, one crocodile, an alligator. There is even a penguin exhibit. The tanks are small. Having been to the Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, I'm not at very impressed by this place.
If you enjoy ambiance and animals this is a perfect stop. It makes for a wonderful date! You are captured in a rainforest walking down a slow spiral to the depths were majestic sea animals are available to view. You are able to go slowly, talk, and beer/wine are available. If you really want to wow a girl and have a relaxing experience this place is perfect and not too expensive.
