The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium is really fantastic. It's one of the most well-designed aquariums I've ever experienced. Each area of the aquarium is beautiful and unique from the others. From the multi-level gorgeous South America section, to the "North Pole" area with the penguins, to the ocean area, are varied and wonderfully visible for all visitors. Real highlights include...

It was cheap as hell. Kids loved the rope bridge, sharks, and crazy frogs. This is a must do when visiting Salt Lake. I cant wait to go back. The three D movies were very good also.

Went with my fiancee and his grandmother. Love how they change the areas around to get new animals in! Easy to spend an afternoon there.

This is a wonderful little aquarium. Some very beautiful fish and a variety of other animals provide a delightful setting. The 4d movie theater, while not great, is included in the price of admission, so visit it while you're there.

Visited the aquarium as we had a business night which gave us access at a highly discounted price. Was pretty impressed with the operation! I can see for families with young children, this would be a great weekend activity to keep the family entertained. I'm not sure what the actual entry fee is so I can't speak to the real... More

Spent an afternoon and was totally engaged with all the different exhibits the entire time. Really enjoyed the South American rain forest exhibit and was impressed with the botanical variety which has been developed, Plan on at least 4 hours if you are going to study and read about all the exhibits.

The shark tank is impressive, with the ability to stand in the tank, totally cool. Thoughtful and informative displays of various fish from all over the planet. The penguins are a surprise too. If you are seeking a break from a business trip the aquarium is a great place to visit.

This is a very interesting place to visit. We had two children with us and they did not want to leave after 3 hours there. There is so much variety of animals to see. we especially loved the Cloud Leopards and the penguins.
