Foursquare Tips

  • The 7-acre complex houses 5 themed aquaria, including a Louisiana swamp, the Amazon River, and a shipwreck. Features include an acrylic train tunnel running through the massive shark tank.
  • 500,000 gallons of underwater tanks w/200+ species of marine life, a temple w/white tigers & a train that takes you into a tunnel w/live sharks swimming overhead...And thats just for starters.
  • A Ferris wheel, train ride, carousel, dancing fountains & tanks with hundreds of fish -- what more could a kid ask for? This virtual theme park offers a whole afternoon of child-friendly thrills.
  • The outdoor rides are a great way to spend the afternoon after seeing all of the interesting aquatic creatures as well as a white tiger!
  • The restaurant is amazing!! Well worth the price. Tempura Mahi Mahi is to die for and the desserts are large and in charge but full of flavor. The fish are fun to watch too. YUM!
  • FUN! Buy the full package, if you buy the simple one it would be boring. The sharks are AWESOME!
  • Feed the sting rays! Kind of scary, but really cool.
  • They charge for parking and they won't validate.
  • Remember to tip your servers.
  • Get an all day pass (good value). Stay away from endless money wasters scattered around the aquarium. Parking is $7. View from ferris wheel of downtown Houston is wonderful.
  • me parecio formidable el Downton Acuario de houston texas
  • 25 miles from ELS - food, exhibits (sharks, white tigers, sting rays, etc.) with games & rides. www.AquariumRestaurants.com/DowntownAquariumHouston/
  • Don't try it! Bad food! eughhhhh
  • Kinda disappointed. Dallas Aquarium has WAY MORE bang for the buck and much LARGER. Cool nonetheless, stingray tank is awesome, you get to touch them as they try to jump out of the water.
  • octopus feeding is worth the wait.
  • Do an early or late lunch in the summer or expect a wait if you go during the noon hour.
  • White tiger and all exhibits are fun. Ferris wheel is out of commission these days
  • White tiger and train ride with other exhibitions
  • Emocionante ver tanta diversidad de animales marinos y la comida del restaurante deliciosa.
  • If you think you may eat at the restaurant check the wait first & put your name in. If there's a long wait you can check out the rest of the action & you'll get a text when your table is ready.
