Here is your chance to get up close with some of the most exotic animals in the world. "Brave the Rainforest" is a new experience opening at SEA LIFE Minnesota Aquarium in the Mall of America.

The $1 million project will transform one of the aquarium’s largest exhibit spaces into a tropical rainforest. The exhibit will give you a chance to see animals like the blue-tongued skinks, tarantulas, snakes, and more than two hundred piranhas.

One feature of the new exhibit is a giant 360-degree pop-up tank where patrons can surround themselves with hundreds of flying cockroaches. According to tcbmag, John Sullwold, PR manager for Sea Life and Legoland Discovery Centers, North America, said in a statement, "With this project, we are truly transporting Mall of America guests into a whole new world from the moment they enter Sea Life!"

The new exhibit is set to open on Friday, March 15, 2019.
