Imagine seeing thousands of sea creatures miles from any ocean? At Sea Life Aquarium Kansas City, experience a beautiful display of starfish, sharks, seahorses, rays, jellyfish, and more!
Upon entering, kids are given a card for the Quiz Trail where they can find and answer 9 questions throughout the aquarium. They enjoyed finding the clues and learning interesting tidbits about the sea life.
A highlight was the Touch Pool, where we could touch a sea star, hermit crab, star fish, and more! The guide answered questions and helped us get over our fear of touching these intricate animals. It was amazing to experience how these creatures feel – some looked soft, but felt like rocks, where others were smooth.
The Ocean Tunnel was full of sharks, rays, turtles, and colorful tropical fish! It was fun to be surrounded by these amazing creatures!
My husband’s favorite was the Jellyfish Display and the backlights in the exhibits. They are so graceful in the water but we would not like to meet them face the face in the ocean!
The huge Stingrays were fun to watch as they glide through the water. It was cool to see them from the top, while standing on the upper deck with a window in the floor.
The Claw Area was very interesting, where you can learn about the anatomy of crabs and see how large they can get! The Japanese Spider Crabs were huge!
In the gift shop, the kids enjoyed playing in the Kid Zone, where they also received a medal for completing all the questions on the Quiz Trail.
We had a wonderful experience at the Sea Life Aquarium Kansas City!
