I thought the outside of the building was cool. I had no idea how amazing the inside was!! Once again, coolest building I have ever seen. I could not stop taking pictures! I felt like I had been transported to some magical, under the sea palace
We began with a tour of the creatures of the Amazon.
I was enthralled by this cute little guy and took way too many pictures of him. But look at that adorable little face isn't he just the cutest little thing ever! This hands are a little creepy though with his freakishly long talons, they kind of look like spiders ... but I still think he is a cute lil guy.
After our trek through the Amazon, it was time for the aquatic show! They have a pretty cool arena for their show. The show featured their beluga whales, dolphins and a sea lion.
After obsessing over the otter, it was movie time! All of our tickets definitely kept us on the move! The movie was pretty cool! As mentioned above it was 4D, so all sorts of crazy stuff happened to us. The movie was made up of different segments from Planet Earth. So when we were watching the penguins in the arctic, they blasted cold air on us, when we were watching sharks catch their prey we were squirted with water in our faces, and our seats were vibrating throughout all the segments. It was a pretty wild ride, and a fun thing to experience!
After the movie we decided to swing by the special jelly fish exhibit. What beautiful creatures jellies are!
I thought these tiger stripped ones were pretty cool
I loved these polka dot jellies!
Then we took the special elevators to go down to the coral reef and shark exhibits. The coral reef exhibit is by far the coolest aquarium presentation I have ever seen! I had seen pictures of it on the Internet while I was researching what I wanted to do while in Chicago and those pictures are what really really made me want to go to the aquarium! I am so glad we made it!
This little dude, was my favorite fish I saw all day
We ended our deep sea experience with the shark tank. Those sneaky little guys are hard to take pictures of! but are super neat.
What. An. AWESOME. Place!!! I loved every minute in this aquarium, it is such an amazing set up and gorgeous building! I am so happy I got to go!
