Houston’s Downtown Aquarium is not your average aquarium. In addition to beautiful underwater exhibits, the Downtown Aquarium also has fun rides and games for the whole family. The aquarium is only about a mile from the Whitehall Houston, so you could walk if you were so inclined and the weather cooperates. Some of the most popular exhibits include the Louisiana Swamp that explores the ecosystem of the bayous, Shipwreck that allows you a view into a sunken Spanish Galleon, and White Tigers of the Maharajah's Temple. The rides that really make this aquarium unique include Shark Voyage where you take a train through a 200,000 gallon shark tank, the Diving Bell Ferris Wheel, Aquatic Carousel, Lighthouse Dive which an exhilarating drop ride, and Frog Hopper, a fun bounce ride. Houston’s Downtown Aquarium is the perfect place for the entire family to have a day of fun, learning, and adventure.
