Planet Shark Blogger Day at the Georgia Aquarium

Georgia Aquarium offered Bloggers two free passes to go see the new exhibit Planet Shark, and of course to view the aquarium. We LOVE the aquarium. Bailey has been several times, and we always enjoy ourselves. So we jumped at the opportunity (and the almost $70 in savings) and headed to Atlanta, GA for the weekend.

I feel like I should mention that thanks to this promotion...our tickets were at the Will Call window...where there was NO LINE. It was a busy, busy Saturday at the Aquarium, and I was dreading the line, but we were routed straight to the window, dropped my name and provided ID and we were DONE! Its the little things like that, that REALLY make my day.

The Georgia Aquarium in Atlanta, Georgia, is the world’s largest with more than eight million gallons of water and the largest collection of aquatic animals. The mission of the Georgia Aquarium is to be an entertaining, educational and scientific institution featuring exhibits and programs of the highest standards, offering engaging and exciting guest experiences and promoting the conservation of aquatic biodiversity throughout the world.

Petting the Sting cool is that? These guys are used to attention, so they were coming right up to us begging for a little affection. Precious!

Starfish! Just like on Nemo!

Here we are at the Cold Water Quest.

Here is Randy, explaining to Bailey how Sponge Bob catches the Jellyfish, and enjoys Krabby Patties with Jellyfish Jelly on them.... I know, we are silly, but Bailey had the best time there!

Planet Shark: Predator or Prey is a stand-alone exhibition inside the Aquarium. The interactive and engaging exhibition explores some of the unique relationships humans have forged with one of the world’s most feared predators-the shark.

We did not make it to the exhibit, Bloggers were warned that it might be a bit too graphic for young children, all those shark teeth I guess, but here are some pics for your perusal...

Pretty cool....but not something the munchkin boy would have enjoyed.

And, if you would like to go see for yourself...Here is a coupon!

Thank you to Grande Exhibitions and Georgia Aquarium for the complimentary tickets to the aquarium and the Planet Shark exhibit.
