Nice layout but designed for young children

First off - this is an aquarium within a mall - large mall for sure - so it is remarkable there is so much to see. I agree - this is designed for younger children but as a... read more

We really enjoyed the tour here. We really didn't expect so much as its inside a mall, but my 2.5y old enjoyed everything. It's really very nicely designed. A must visit with kids.

Grapevine may have small uptown but we enjoy it each time. There are plenty of restaurants - expensive ones, mid-range ones, bakeries, cafes, etc. we particularly like to visit around Thanksgiving to Christmas as the town is decorated - everything. They have parks for the kids to enjoy, Santa, a train (I believe it goes to the Ft Worth Stockyard),and... More

Just because it is inside the mall doesn't mean it is a reduced version. Very good exhibits, the 360 degree tunnel is awesome, could have stood there for much longer. The Octopus exhibit was my favorite. If there was a chair or bench nearby I could have spent the afternoon just watching that. Wife loved it, 12 yr old boy... More

Needs more hands on attractions. It was clean and the staff was pleasant. Did not take more than an hour to see everything. Kind of pricey.

We took our three grandkids to Sealife one day during the summer. I think we enjoyed it as much as the children did. All the displays were amazing and we got some terrific pictures. I would recommend this to anyone old or young. We have lived in this area for years and this was our first trip to do this.... More

Decent aquarium, nice for small kids. Not to big or small for them. Nice staff, they were welcoming. We used a Groupon offer, they made me sign a voucher form even though she scanned my Barcode.

I love this aquarium! The size is just right for a trip with young kids. My twins are now 4 and we have been there several times. I love how there are several tanks that kids can crawl under and pop up in an enclosure inside to look at the fish. There's a great walk through tank with lots of... More

Missed 5 star because of cost. Too much, especially for a large family. Other than that, enjoyed it very very much. So much to see. Engages the children and adults alike. Very busy.
