If you've never been to The Living Planet Aquarium then you're missing out. We were in SLC to get our family pictures taken (don't get to excited, our supossedly 90 minute photo session turned into a 20 minute hurry and snap a few pictures before the kids freeze to death and the sun goes down, I'll save the rest of that story for another time). We had half a day to kill so we decided to try something different than the zoo. It was a lot of fun. You could probably hurry though it in an hour or take your time and spend a good afternoon there.
They had all kinds of info on all the species living in Utah, my kids were more interested in playing on the big frog
This was by far our favorite part! We could have spent an hour just playing in the touch pool. All the sting rays just swim around the edges of this big pool and let you pet them.
Even Kenzie liked petting them. Once in awhile they'd come pop out of the water a little and splash us. Kenzie would let out a little squeal but then she'd be right back in there.
