We Liked The Aquarium
By Barry J Hall Verified Reviewer from wichita ks on
Pros:
Great Pizza, Experiencing The Rays, Cool 4d Show
Cons:
Getting Caught In Crowds, Dolphin Show Seemed Amiss,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations :

This was my first time experiencing an aquarium so I have nothing to compare to, but as far as "my opinion" goes, this is a really nice place to go. Going into this I knew I'd be facing crowds but there were times my daughter and I could find ourselves on a slightly different rhythm, which made things better. All in all I recommend it.

a must-see, Family-oriented, Convenient, Entertaining
Cons:
Can Get Crowded,
Best Uses:
Skip the line,
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations :

Anyone who has been to the Shedd knows the worst part is the line. With our Go Chicago cards we were able to skip the line and get inside right when it opened. My kids LOVED it and I couldn't believe how much there was to see. This might become an annual family trip and I will definitely use the Go Chicago card every time.
