Sea Life Aquarium- Grapevine

I’m continuing on with our Dallas/Grapevine trip today. One of the other places we went to was the Sea Life Aquarium in Grapevine Mills. I wasn’t really sure what to expect from an aquarium that is inside of a mall but I figured since the LEGOLAND Discovery Center in the mall was fun then the aquarium might be too.

I bought the tickets online and I also purchased guide books for the boys. There was no lines when we got there so we were able to go in right away.

This is the first room you enter.

You might not be able to tell from my pictures but the aquarium is set up in a really fun way. I really enjoyed the decorations both in and out of the tank. I also really like that they had a quiz trail. The boys each got a paper for the quiz trail. It was numbered and besides each number they had to scratch out the color of the correct answer for that question. Once they turned it in at the gift shop the received medals.

The aquarium also had an area that had a few interactive screens. You can pick a shark to learn more about and then you can rotate it so that you can take a look all around it. There was also a game that went along with it but I have to say that I really don’t remember what it was.

There was also a playground at the very end.

So that was our trip to the Sea Life Aquarium. The Aquarium isn’t huge but it’s a good size and it’s nicely done. They have a lot of interactive elements that make it both fun and educational.
