Owner description: The adventure at The Dallas World Aquarium begins at the top of the rainforest exhibit, where exotic birds, such as Cocks-of-the-rock and many species of toucans, can be seen. Lounging around are Two-toed and Three-toed sloths. Endangered animals, such as Orinoco crocodiles, Giant river otters, Antillean manatees and several species of monkeys are part of the many conservation projects. The aquarium portion displays interesting marine life, including Japanese crabs, jellyfish, Leafy, Weedy and Ribbon seadragons. Black-footed and Blue penguins can be seen swimming as guests enjoy the outdoor South Africa exhibit. Sharks, rays and sawfish are only a few of the fish living in the Mundo Maya cenote. Safe from Neotropical eagles, are euphonias, tanagers and hummingbirds. Reptiles and amphibians, both of significance to the Maya culture, can be seen throughout the exhibit.

“Awesome Aquarium”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

If you go to Dallas and and have only one day, I recommend the D.allas W.orld A.quarium! The staff was very friendly, all most all of the expiates are viewable from different points of view. Every thing was very clean. I have been to several other aquariums from Texas to California and this is one of the best if not the best one i have been lucky enough to visit.

“Fun, Informative and just plain WOW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

This was our second trip and we took several friends with us. They intended to spend an hour and then head out. My wife and I knew better. We spent a good 2+ hours there with lots and lots of pictures. This is an absolute don't miss in my opinion.

“Fun place for both grown ups and kids!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

Went here with a couple of friends on a Sunday. This place was awesome. Really liked how the place was designed like a trail and you got close contact to almost all the animals in here. Some animals was flying, jumping free around you - FUN!

“A total experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Makes you think you've stepped into another world, well put together, worth the price. Be prepared to stand in line, but the walkthrough is pretty steady

“Serenity in the city!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 29, 2012

I love the Dallas World Aquarium especially on a warm Tx. afternoon. It is like walking through a rain forest! It is very serene & soothing as you pass the various marine life in the ponds and in the trees. BTW, there is a Sloth that hangs out in a tree!
