Small but enough interest. Good for children and adults. Many things and good for learning. A rainy day activity

I have a 4 years old and this aquarium is just the right one for him. It's located inside a mall, not too huge but has huge display collection and quite easy for him to navigate around. The shark display is awesome, turn out to be his favourite. The submarine playground is attractive as well. From time to time, there's... More

This is a great small aquarium both my 16 year old and my 10 year old had fun. The walk through areas had great views of the sharks and stingrays. It is a nice calm area to relax at the crowded mall.

The exhibit also features a Japanese spider crab, the largest arthropod in the world, with legs that can reach 12-feet across when fully grown." this was our favorite part. We also like the octopus, it was huge!... More

We arrived before opening last Saturday. As we waited in line to get our picture taken and enter a large group behind us cut through the line and rushed into the attraction, even more people made a mad dash into the attraction clogging the entrance. Sea Life needs better crowd control here (there was only one girl and she was... More

Our plan was to go to Legoland with our 2 year old. However, we did not pre-purchase tickets as we were playing our schedule by ear. We got there right when the place opened, but the 1st available entrance was 11:45! So, to "kill" time we bought the combo tickets which included Seaquarium which opened at 10 AM. The mall... More

This place is perfect for small kids. The smaller the kid, the shorter his/her attention span, and Grapevine's aquarium is just the right size to keep little kids engaged yet they are not getting bored 1/3 into the exhibits. The place is well-designed and allows some hands-on experience. They also have "treasure hunt" type of activities. We attended a birthday... More

We bought a combo Legoland/Sea life ticket online. We used them on separate days. The aquarium had all one would care to see with two five year old boys. They loved the places where they could view the fish from a bubble inside the tank, the sting rays, octopus, and sharks. It was a great way to spend the morning... More
