Visiting your city's aquarium is always a good idea. The souvenirs, exhibits, and ability to get up close and personal with the animals can't be found anywhere else. This is especially true when it comes to Downtown Aquarium Houston, which offers an underwater train ride through an actual shark tank!

You read that correctly, Downtown Aquarium Houston is home to the one and only Shark Voyage, an underwater train ride that takes you through the center of a 200,000-gallon shark tank.

While many other cities in Texas have fun and exciting things to do at their aquariums, nothing can compare to being as close to sharks as you can get without having to swim right next to them. Save the zoo for another time, aquariums are where it's at. 

Shark Voyage is just $5.99 to experience, and if that's all you'd like to do while at the aquarium, you can purchase those individual tickets for it without having to buy anything else.

But, if you're planning on spending your day there, the list of games, rides, and exhibits to choose from is just about endless. 

An all-day adventure pass is just $21.99 for adults and $20.99 for children. The pass gets you one-day unlimited access to all rides and the Aquarium Adventure Exhibit. Not a bad deal, if you ask me. 

Downtown Aquarium Houston is open 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 10 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. on Sundays.

With over 200 species of underwater life to see, you'll likely lose track of time exploring them all. 

Grab your friends and get ready to feel straight out of an episode of Shark Tank. Shark Voyage is open year-round, and it's calling all of our names!
