Got a $10 ticket on Groupon, for a night pass (5-9 pm) including the show and entrance to the Jellies exhibit. I am glad I only paid $10 instead of the $32.95 per adult it would have cost normally.
This aquarium is OK, but that's about it. The "sharks at the Shedd" are very small and only in one spot. The Jellies are cool. The Holiday Fantasea show is OK also, but don't sit on the sides of the seating areas or you won't be able to see some of the show -- when they say doors open 30 minutes early, they mean it, the seats were all filled 15 minutes later. The Amazon waters exhibit was all right. The Caribbean Reef exhibit had some nice fish.
I don't know what I expected, but I was underwhelmed. For $10, this was a nice way to spend the evening or even an afternoon, but $32.95 is way too much for what it offers. Considering the Science and Industry Museum is half the price. You will need quarters for the lockers.
Was very hard to get a cab at 7:30 pm....either take the number of a cab company or be prepared to walk to the main road.
