Dallas World Aquarium
Experience nature’s adventure at this unique display of flora and fauna from five continents, 14 countries, three oceans, and numerous seas and rivers. The 200-foot Wilds of Borneo entrance ramp is lined with plants and animals representative of this region. The indoor adventure begins at the top of the Orinoco - Secrets of the River rainforest exhibit. The upper levels showcase mixed avian species as they fly freely throughout the vegetation, foraging for food, building nests, caring for their young or preening at the top of the 40-foot waterfall. Mammals, ranging in size from small vampire bats to large Antillean manatees, share the rainforest with amphibians, reptiles, invertebrates and fish. The Aquarium portion includes marine species from around the world. The indoor pathway continues by way of a forty-foot long tunnel through the Cenote filled with sharks and rays. The stone pathway ascends into the upper levels where tiny hummingbirds and large raptors have an up-close encounter with the tall Tree of Life. We will catch a bus at the Texins Fitness Center at 9:00 am and arrive for our 10:00 entrance time. We will have time to look around and have lunch in any of the 3 restaurants inside the aquarium (at your own expense). We will return to TI around 2:30 pm. The cost is $25.00.
