1. Mall of America: SEA LIFE Minnesota Aquarium Admission
Explore the magical underwater world at SEA LIFE Minnesota. Travel through the world-famous 300-foot long ocean tunnel and come face to fin with thousands of creatures like never before. Meet the largest sharks in Minnesota, the Sand Tiger shark. Growing up to 9 feet long, Sand Tiger sharks may look scary but actually are a docile species of shark. Also, meet their adorable endangered Guitarshark babies. SEA LIFE at Mall of America is the first SEA LIFE across the globe, and only the second aquarium in North America, to have had success in breeding these critically endangered creatures. Brave the Rainforest and get close to caiman crocodiles, poison dart frogs, piranha, and more. Have the chance to meet Seemore, a rescued Green Sea Turtle, and learn more about her life story. Seemore was found off of the coast of Florida after being hit by a boat propeller. As a result of her injury, a team of animal experts devised and created a 3D-printed shell to help her swim with greater ease. With help from engineers at the University of Minnesota, the plastic shell – or “backpack” - was built, fitted, and tested on her with great success. Go on an interactive and fun journey for all ages into the diversity of marine life while playing an active role in educational and conservation efforts and inspiring others to lend their support.
