I was pleasantly surprised by this aquarium. We just moved to Grapevine and I had a coupon from the clipper magazine. I thought my 1 year old would enjoy looking at the fish, so I took him. It was a little crowded, but not too bad. Keep in mind this location is IN the mall, so don't expect anything huge.... More

We had a great time celebrating my daughter's 9th birthday at SeaLife in Grapevine! Our hosts, Cat and Alexis, did a great job! I would highly recommend!

I was very disappointed at how small the aquarium was--especially given the hefty price tag (even after a coupon). Given that it was in a mall, I suppose that I should have had lower expectations. The staff at the registers were slow even though the line was incredibly short. In fact, one guy was just standing and chatting on his... More

I expected this to be larger - just my expectation. It has beautiful displays and the information provided by the employees is interesting. We got to see them feed the rays. My 8 YO GD really loved all the fish. We combined this with our trip to Great Wolf Lodge.

While on a trip to great wolf lodge, I took my kids here. From ages 10-15. We all enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend to anyone wanting to go.

As a native North Texan, seeing an aquarium like this close to home was a nice surprise. The exhibits were varied from sea horses to sharks to even a couple of turtles. We had a coupon for free kids admission per paying adult, but the price for the tickets are worth it and this is a good way to beat... More

Great aquarium, just very crowded on a Saturday!! Try to go during the week!! Worth the price!! Only wish they had stroller parking...the space is a little tight at times, and the strollers can get in the way.

This place is pretty interesting & has several cool features to it. Though it is pricey I'd suggest that you buy your tickets online or if you want them cheaper buy them at Costco where I got mines at, & I saved about 50% for my purchase. It is much more geared for families with young kids. But you'll have... More

This isn't a huge aquarium, but very fun for little ones. Had everything most big aquariums have. My Grandkids loved getting the stamps for their books. Had a great time!

Very interesting place. You would not think it being in a Mall that this place would have to much to do/see. Love the fact you can come and go...if you get hungry you can go eat somewhere and then use your day ticket to get back in. And, all the sea life and knowledge of it is a star stuck... More
