An underwater world, filled with adventures.
This is how I would describe our recent visit to the SeaLife Aquarium here in Kansas City.
Last week, my family and I were invited by SeaLife of Kansas City to come by and visit their establishment. My son heard about their new home in Kansas City, last year, and has been asking me non stop to go. We took this opportunity and invited his little friend to come along with all of us.
SeaLife of Kansas City Features:
- Underwater Ocean Tunnel
- Opportunities to touch a starfish and/or hold a crab in the touchpool experience
- Over 5,000 Sea Creatures to learn about and see
- 260,000 Gallons of water that hold everything from sharks, jellyfish, seahorses, stingrays and more.
We started our adventure by booking our friend’s tickets online, as my family received complimentary tickets. It’s advised to book online, in advance of your visit, to not only receive priority entry into the SeaLife Aquarium – but to receive online savings over the walk up admission price.
Our arrival to SeaLife Kansas City Aquarium was around 2pm on a Saturday afternoon. I was worried that our visit would be a busy one, however the crowds were very light. We enjoyed this time of day and were able to visit each station without pushing and shoving of other children.
Upon our arrival, each child received a scratch off card that they could use during their visit. Each area of the SeaLife Aquarium featured trivia questions of the animals that they were learning about. The 8 year old that we brought along with us really enjoyed this piece, a little more than our 5 year old. I thought this was a great feature to provide a little more interaction with the tour.
My favorite piece of the SeaLife Kansas City Aquarium was the stingrays. They had a bridge that crossed over the tank so you could watch the stingrays from above, and along the back of the tank there was a tunnel for the kids to go in.
We were able to see a few of the stingrays glide across the water top, they are so graceful and such pretty creatures.
The SeaLife Kansas City Aquarium is not an all day adventure – just something to note if you are looking for an all day activity. We were able to visit the attraction and see everything in under an hour.
What I did like, the SeaLife Kansas City Aquarium is right next door to LegoLand (review coming in another post). Upon leaving the SeaLife Aquarium and entering the LegoLand Discovery Center, our tickets allowed us to come back and visit anytime in that same day.
After finishing LegoLand, the kids decided that they wanted to see the sharks again so it was nice that we could hop back over and let them do that.
We had a great time at the SeaLife Kansas City Aquarium and the kids haven’t stopped talking about our visit. I’m really happy to see such a family friendly attraction added to our Crown Center area. We will surely be back to visit again!
