Downtown Aquarium - expert review
On the north side of the Platte River across from Six Flags Elitch Gardens, the Downtown Aquarium, formerly Colorado's Ocean Journey, is the only million-gallon aquarium between Chicago and the West Coast.

Ocean Journey - user review
You are in for a real adventuresome treat when you come to Ocean Journey in mile-high Denver. Just because Denver is inland doesn't mean it doesn't have a watery history. About 65 million years ago, Colorado lay beneath shallow waters of a vast inland sea. Our out-of-town guests are always amazed at...

Colorado's Ocean Journey - expert review
Denver's state-of-the-art aquarium -- the largest between Chicago and Monterey, California -- opened in 1999 as a nonprofit, and in 2003 was sold to the for-profit Landry's seafood restaurant chain. The sale brought the aquarium stability, not to mention new exhibits and a theme restaurant and loung...

Once is more than enough. - user review
A wide variety of tanks. The fake eagle and orangutan were tacky and unnecessary. I was surprised to find the tiger. Do they want to be a zoo or an aquarium? I think this adds ...

Ocean Journey - user review
We had first heard that this new aquarium wasn't that good but we thoroughly enjoyed it! We found a coupon for two-for-one admission too. Convenient parking across the street is $6. Apparently when the adjacent Six Flags is open, there is a shuttle that runs from the parking lot over to Six Flags so...

Ocean Journey - user review
This aquarium is a journey of water to the ocean and following the rivers. While it calls itself an aquarium, there is a pair of tigers on sight too. The tanks are delightful to look at, but some of the exhibits have small fish in them. The otter and the shark tanks are amazing. You are actually abl...

Here's what's bad: You can see this whole place in an hour, because they don't have much to see. The parking was about $8. The entrance fee is about $14 - VERYYYY pricey. I don't care if it costs a lot to get fish to Colorado. I went to the largest freshwater aquarium in Chattanooga, TN (12 stories ...
