    The one thing that really struck me was the Amazon exhibit. Those things they have in the water there are really damn freaky. I don't ever want to go swimming in the Amazon! LOL

    Went over my summer vacation this year. Absolutely amazing experience! Definitely liked seeing the penguins, but I've always loved otters. I could watch those guys play for hours.

    One of the marmosets really like kids and will chase you back and forth across the habitat on the other side of the glass.

    Do not go if you hate crowds or small children. It's curated in a way that you won't have trouble seeing anything, though.

    If you haven't done it before, the 4D experience is well-worth 1/2 the price of your admission.

    Avoid the 'free' app snappz. 3 QR code locations then you (or your kids) need $3.99 to unlock. Better to just be creative & make up a game to keep kids engaged. Feels like a cash grab!
