I went to the Aquarium in 1994 and I may have eaten a meal there. Using a point and shoot film camera I had a problem with the reflections and sometimes with dirty window glass.
They have a carousel there, but the photos I took were no good because of the reflections.

Each summer fantastic performers visit the Zoo and give concerts. Each dedicates their performance to one of the zoos animals. Washington Mutual sponsors the event so all ticket proceeds benefit the zoo. This year the only remaining concerts are Los Lobos and Etta James. Tickets sell out very early in the year so you need to plan ahead or go to EBay or Craigs List for Tickets. Each ticket admits one adult and one child under the age of twelve! It is held in the North Meadow so bring a blanket, picnic, and chairs (under 24" tall) for a fantastic evening. It is an intimate venue and no flashy light shows and such.
Food booths and a beer and wine garden are located at the beack edge of the Meadow. If you get there early run to the radio station booth as they often have FREE cds but they go fast. . Everyone is very mellow and it is a great social event. GO early and visit the zoo then get in line for the concert inside so you can get the closest spot to the stage (or the food, or the wine area). Gates open at 5pm and concerts often run until the zoo boots everyone out so the animals can sleep. This is one of Seattles best kept secrets! (Don't tell anyone else!) Etta James doesn't even list this concert on her website!
Address: Woodland Park Zoo
Directions: North Parking lot of Woodland Park Zoo. The North Meadow is located between the Emu exhibit and the Penguin Pool. There are two entrances to the meadow one at each of the above.
