Long Description:
"Walk beneath the vivid Caribbean Reef, marvel at the lush beauty of the Amazon Rainforest and journey the Mississippi River at Audubon Aquarium of the Americas where penguins, sting rays, sharks and other deep sea creatures await your visit. Visit new animals and old favorites, too—including our beloved sea otters Buck and Emma!"
From Audubon Nature Institue.

I thought Hurricane on the Bayou would be a pretty good IMAX, but it was actually kind of lame.
