  • Went with grandkids ages 12 & 9! Kept their interest thru! Petting of the rays was a big hit! Don’t miss this! On hot days, go in the morning.  more »
  • Definitely a fun experience- they limit entry based on the hour at peak hours. My kids liked the variety of wildlife. Kinda expensive for kids under 5.  more »

  • Had a great time at Sea Life! Took my 7 year old while visiting KC. He enjoyed the various exhibits, fun facts and various "play" options. Really nicely layout. Also, thought it was cool how its attached to Lego-land, yet separated as well. Would recommend to other with small children.
  • Great place to go to fest the youngsters or I'd the house. We went with our 17m old and he was fairly amused... when he wasn't trying to put starfish in his mouth (that was my fault). There is a clean bathroom with changing tables and these passages between exhibits allow you to lazily peruse the exhibit without feeling like you're in anyone's way. Especially with a stroller. RECOMMEND BRINGING A COMPACT STROLLER and not a bulky one so that you can maneuver around the crowds better. Once you're done there you should go to the food court across the street or go next door to Lego Land for more age appropriate fun with the kids. Highly recommend.
