Landry's Downtown Aquarium

Houston Press' Description

A Ferris wheel, a train ride, a carousel, dancing fountains and tanks loaded with hundreds of fish -- what more could a kid ask for? This virtual theme park in the Downtown Theater District offers a whole afternoon of child-friendly thrills. Think of Landry's Downtown Aquarium as a good, centrally located alternative to Six Flags. The sound and smell effects inside the Aquarium's Amazon River and Mayan Temple attractions intrigue kids in a Disneyesque manner. And little ones can dine at boatlike tables and watch continuous movie clips in the informal downstairs restaurant. Thanks to the Landry's ownership, the food's not bad either. Popular items on the American/seafood menu include calamari, fish tacos and chicken lettuce wraps. And there’s a full bar for adults who feel like unwinding a bit after spending all day with the kids.

    Tigers and eels and sting rays, oh my! DTAQ has everything you'd want, animal exhibits and tours, great food, great views and a ferris wheel! Book a reservation for one of their speciality brunches like Breakfast with Santa
