If you live in the area and have small children or if you're just visiting and need to entertain them for an hour or two, then this is a nice place to visit. The summer months and the late spring days when schools take their class trips are too busy to make it enjoyable, but if you are able to... More

Not the biggest aquarium you will ever go in to but very impressive for "being inside a mall." It was not super crowded and I didn't feel rushed or like I was being herded through the aquarium. Lots of opportunities to touch, explore, crawl, and interact with the aquarium. We actually upgraded our ticket to a season pass because we... More

We took our toddler to this location for her birthday she absolutly loved it. We felt it was a bit over priced for such a small location. She loved it and that's all that matters

When I realized the aquarium was in the Grapevine Mills shopping center, I started preparing myself for a disappointment. No need! This is a very nice aquarium with beautifully laid out tanks, some very large. The largest had a clear tunnel you walk through with fish, rays, and sharks swimming above, below, and around you. There are also some small... More

This aquarium was done very nicely. There was a really cool stingray tank where we got to watch them get hand fed. There were several hands on areas as well. Sea Life is right next door to Legoland and you can buy combined tickets to get a better price.

Sea Life is a nice little aquarium with plenty of parking since it's in a mall. Thankfully it's entrance is right when you walk in so you don't have to deal with any mall crowds. It's also very close to the food court if you feel like grabbing something to eat while you're there (the tickets allow you to come... More

Sea Life Aquarium was a ton of fun! We took our 18 month old on a weekday and purchased discounted tickets online in advance. It was very clean, the staff was very friendly and helpful, and each of the 8 little stations was so well put together. It was informative and had so many different ways to view the sea... More

This place is in a mall. I'm not a big mall fan but we had our 5 year-old grandson with us and he needed a diversion. I had low expectations and was pleasantly surprised by this spot. Far more exhibits than I had anticipated and we lucked into a book reading and a special underwater surprise with a visit from... More

What a treat to experience this wonderful aquarium in of all places, a mall. Lego experience is next door too! Kids loved it and on a rainy day, was a perfect respite from the weather.
