Great time with friends and their young children

My friend brought her children "to the big city" so we decided to go to the Aquarium. It was a great time for adults and children alike.

For my wife’s birthday I decided to treat her to the Grapevine Sea Life Aquarium. Its by the theater entrance at Grapevine Mall. You have to pass by LEGOLAND to get to Grapevine’s Sea Life Aquarium, but I see why they are close together in the Grapevine Mall. It’s a kid’s paradise. The first thing you see on the way... More

Located inside Grapevine Mills Mall, and across from Legoland. This aquarium is actually very nice. Lots of different perspectives to see the fish. You walk over them, under them and can stand on a walkway above the stingrays. Children have many opportunities to see the sharks and other fish at their level. For little Dino lovers, the fish swim through... More

We visited this aquarium with our two grandchildren, aged 5&6. It was perfect for them, and we enjoyed it too. The parking is free, because it's located at a mall. The exhibits are fascinating, and there is a lot to see. The kids loved walking through the tunnel with fish and sea creatures on all sides, and going into the... More

This is a smaller aquarium but we love it. If you had to choose over the aquarium and Legoland this is the one to choose. My family from out of town were really impressed with it.

We went on a Sunday morning. The line to get in was pretty long and there were several people who were confused on which line to get in. We already had tickets in hand and having those didn't help much since others without tickets had a smaller line. Once we got inside the aquariums were nice and informative. It was... More

There were a lot of see-through floors, including one 360 degree tube to walk through. Peso and Captain Barnacles from Octonauts were there as well. The animals were well-cared for, and there were a lot of educational opportunities. Price was very reasonable! Recommend for families with younger children!

This aquarium is in a mall, I'll say that so people won't expect it to be anything particularly big. There are very few exhibits. We also had the misfortune of attending when several schools were there, so it was hard to see anything without a kid shoving or pushing by. On more than one occasion, a kid pushed away my... More

I had heard mixed reviews from a few people who had visited this aquarium. For that reason I wasn't in a rush to check it out. I finally went two weeks ago for my birthday. With it being in the grapevine mills, I honestly wasn't expecting much... especially with Dallas Aquarium being so amazing (for those who have been to... More
