This is a stick up!  Get it? Stick.... Nevermind, it's a train robbery.  I want everyone to get your hands up and act scared.

It took Mr. Bass Pro less than two years after he finally got off the pot to transform the Pyramid in Memphis to a store and hotel. It has been opened for two years and this place STILL isn't officially Open. And...at the prices he is wanting it best be special.

For an aquarium of this size the prices are actually right around "normal" and pretty much on the same level as other similar places.  Not much different than the price of a show in Branson.

Well, I was basing it on three strait mornings with lows in the mid 40s in the FIRST week of SEPT.

These past couple of weeks, man o man.
