Looking for something fun to do over Spring Break? You won’t want to miss the fun, interactive new Shark Misson area at Sea Life Aquarium in Grapevine. My family was treated to a special media preview to check it out! We loved the interactive touch screens…the games and information were very engaging. The larger then life images and fun facts could have kept us busy for hours. Definitely a place to take the shark lovers in your life. And of course, the Gogo SqueeZ is always a favorite healthy treat for my girls!
In Shark Mission, you can immerse yourself in the life of a shark, play interactive games, experience spectacular visuals and learn fascinating facts about these majestic predators of the deep. The hands-on exhibit, in conjunction with the redesigned Shark Walk, create a new shark area that allows you to watch several species of sharks swim beneath your feet from a suspended glass platform and discover compelling facts about shark anatomy and habits with giant cutting-edge touch screens.
For a larger than life experience, there is also an opportunity to take your picture with the humongous jaws of a Megalodon shark, the biggest prehistoric shark that ever lived, whose teeth are nearly ten times the size of a great white shark. You can also touch real shark eggs, teeth and more in the interactive discovery touch pools. Be sure to also watch aquarists feed the sharks in the ocean tank every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday at 2 p.m.
“This is the first Shark Mission to open in the U.S., and a great opportunity for visitors to learn more about these majestic creatures in a fun and engaging way before seeing these amazing predators up-close in our Shark Walk and 360-degree underwater ocean tunnel,” says Iain Scouller, SEA LIFE Aquarium Regional General Manager.
On opening weekend, maximize your fun and take part in a self-led scavenger hunt to find all 15 species of sharks in the aquarium, more than any other aquarium in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, with the purchase of a Guide Book for $3.
