HOUSTON, TX — Do you know someone who is obsessed with sharks? Well, maybe they would be interested in taking a choo-choo train through a 200,000 gallon tank full of them.

Houston's Downtown Aquarium offers visitors the option to jump on the Shark Voyager Train (also known as the C.P. Huntington train) and get up, close and personal, with sharks.

While on the train, you are able to look up and all around at all the sharks in the tank.

You can purchase an all-day adventure pass for $22.99 (adults) or 21.99 (children), and you are able to explore the parks all day and check out all the rides and the Aquarium Adventure exhibit.

The aquarium also has a ferris wheel, aqua wheel, aquatic carousel, frog hopper and lighthouse dive. You can also check out the Stingray Reef exhibit - where you can touch and feed live stingrays.

For Texans looking for a spring break getaway, they are offering a spring break pass for $69.90. With the pass, you get unlimited admission on rides at the Kemah Boardwalk, Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier and Downtown Aquarium. Their website said that exhibits at the Aquarium are also included.
