    This brand new complex has 35 aquariums featuring a fascinating collection of exotic fish and animals in their natural biotope. Sharks, piranhas, stingrays and octopuses. The fish and other sea creatures will take you on a marvellous voyage through a tropical rain forest, along rivers, underwater caves and coral reefs, to the depths of the ocean.

    A real treat for adults and children, the aquarium enables everyone to learn more about the fascinating underwater world in a relaxed manner. The educational programmes, interactive features and multimedia applications will teach you all about the wonders of the water world. A visit is informative and will make you aware of the protection that water and its 'inhabitants' need these days.
    Tip: for nature lovers who feel like meeting more animals after their visit to Aquatopia, a combination ticket gives access to the Zoo.

    Compare to aquaria in other countries, this one is a bit small, but it's nice to go there if you've got the time. It's a good opportunity for taking pictures of all kind of fish.

    But if you go there is the use of earplugs maybe a good idea, because of lots of screaming kids: aarrrrrggghhh!!!

    ATTRACTION - Fish living in a hotel...

    by belgianchocolate Updated Dec 20, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness


    AQUATOPIA has opened his doors october 2003.

    In a part of the Astrid park plaza hotel an
    aquarium complex has been constructed.

    You know what it's like? Beautiful fish in al
    colors you can imagine. Some special
    decorations...And of course the sharks
    always look bigger on the poster and the
    tunnel is ridiculous. But quit a nice and
    modern aquarium.

    A bit expensive if you ask me...
    We were round in less then 2 houres and
    we are quit interested.
    (a good alternative is the zoo , but soon there
    will be combitickets available)

    (it is forbidden to take pictures with flash)

    Beside Astrid Park Plaza Hotel, this aquarium is situated. There are verities of fish are on display in the fish tanks. All you can have for as little as Euro 9.50. They also provide guided tour, you need to book it in advance, but do you really need that guided tour unless you are a fish lover. For me it was enough as it was all written about the kind of fish on each fish tank.

    Piranhas

    Their terrifying set of teeth turns this species into fearsome predators. In reality, they are far less dangerous than their reputation makes us believe.

    Frogs

    What the beauty of underwater world brought to us here, has a direct impact on civilization. This is because, man often constitutes danger to the conservation of some species.
