Stop in to FlyOver America for a simulated flight over the United States' most beautiful landscapes.
Make sure to save some time for a more leisurely, but no less exciting stroll through SEA LIFE Minnesota Aquarium, where you'll be submerged 14 feet below the surface of a glass tunnel and face-to-face with more than 10,000 living sea creatures, including seahorses, starfish and stingrays! Don’t miss the aquarium’s latest expansion, where you’ll be able to touch and feed stingrays, have an up-close encounter at the Pacific Northwest Touchpool, or venture through a giant ship complete with a schooling fish exhibit.
Day Two: Keeping your Big Ticket adventure going, visit the Minnesota Zoo, the Twin Cities’ “must do” attraction, and view more than 4,700 animals in their natural habitats. The Minnesota Zoo is one of the nation’s largest zoos, making it a home to over 445 different species of animals. The Big Ticket attraction pass offers a discount on admission and FREE parking.
