Transcript The Aquouium NEW THRILL ISAVVEV TO HOUSTON In February, Houston restaurant mogul Tillman J. Fertitta unveiled his new entertainment venue in the heart of downtown. Downtown Aquarium offered locals and tourists alike many options for family-oriented recreation. The theme of atmospheric grottoes and slick undersea motifs was a hit with visitors. Most visitors went straight to see the many aquariums. These were done up in various themes, including a Louisiana- style swamp, a sunken ship, and an ancient Mayan temple in ruins. The creatures contained in these aquariums were fascinating examples of international marine life. A glance at the explanatory notes on the tanks gave patrons information about such creatures as the Goliath grouper, the emerald tree boa, and the deceptively tame-looking piranhas. The restaurant and bars, like The Dive Lounge, were some of the main attractions. "It's just such a good-looking place," said Dive Lounge bartender Julian Muniz, a University of Houston senior marketing major. "Sometimes I just sit here and look at all the fish. The Marina Matinee Cafe, a casual spot perfect for kids, featured seating moored to the waterway underfoot. However, the most spectacular dining experience was the Aquarium Restaurant. This handsome space, centered on a huge 100,000-gallon tank holding a large variety of fish, offered diners a remarkable experience. Amusements outside contributed to the carnival atmosphere. A whimsical train ride took visitors under a 200,000- gallon shark tank. "The train through the shark tank is something different and beautiful," said junior hotel and restuarant management major Brian Theriot. -Bjorn Gudmundson The Dowtown Aquarium boasted more than 200,000 gallons of fresh and salt water tanks which were home to over 200 species of aquatic life. TRICKIER The waterwalls at The Aquarium always keep a serene, peaceful sound around the complex. The idea of the Down tow n Aquarium was an offshoot of I he Aquarium Restaurant in the popular Kemah Boardwalk near Galveston. -Dixie Ann Dalton fimmMMMmimm
