Owner description: Are you a Shark lover, Seahorse fanatic or a Clown-fish groupie? Perhaps it’s the graceful Jellyfish or our newest family member- the Green Sea Turtle that you love the most. Maybe you simply can’t decide! At SEA LIFE Grapevine Aquarium you can make up your mind and see them all - from the curious and the rescued to the rare and the enigmatic. SEA LIFE Grapevine Aquarium offers an interactive, hands-on visit for all ages. A day out at SEA LIFE will leave you with fantastic memories and feeling empowered to make a difference to the underwater world. Take the “Behind the Scenes Tour” to discover the top of the ocean tank and get a closer look at the animals who call it home. You'll see first-hand how the SEA LIFE Aquarist Team prepares food for over 5,000 animals each day!

We were killing time between ice skating competitions at the Polar Ice Rink. What a surprise! Much bigger than I expected, many sea creatures to see. Several employees available to educate guests throughout the exhibits.

We went directly to the "behind the scenes" thing they had every hour. It was a great start of our tour of the aquarium and we got to see how they make their own seawater, how they took care of wounded animals and much more. It didn't take long, so you had plenty of time to visit the actual aquarium afterwards.

Inside everything is well structured and their tanks are well maintained, which makes it easy to see all the sealife and even take good pictures. It's not very pricey and I believe it is worth a visit if you are interested in sealife, which both me and my gf are (we are both scuba divers).

The mall itself has a good selection of food for when you are done.

My family and I enjoyed the aquarium. It definitely kept my toddler busy. There are a lot of spots around the aquarium for photos. Tickets are cheaper online and shorten your wait time at the entrance. I didn't mind the slight wait time at the entrance, because, unlike the Dallas Aquarium, they seem to be limiting how many people go in at a time. I never found it too crowded or felt rushed. I think it was worth the money.

Almost like a miniaturized version of the one in New Orleans. It was very clean. I was impressed with how clear the tanks were. We actually got to see the jelly fish being fed. The staff was very helpful and friendly. I wish the line wasn't so long. Maybe you need to add a couple of registers there.

The Sea Life Aquarium is a nice aquarium located at the Grapevine Mills Mall. It is also very inexpensive when you purchase a combo ticket (Legoland & Sea Life). We enjoyed the shark walk our children were scared and excited to walk this area,
