I have missed you all! I am back after surviving a 3.5 week long RV trip taken up the east coast with my family! Yes, all 7 of us! It was a blast taking in the world from the view that a RV gives you, rather than flying over it all in an airplane.
I have splendid news to share, as I promised, SEA LIFE Grapevine Aquarium at Grapevine Mills Mall is opening soon, on July 12, 2011! My family is again abuzz with excitement about yet another grand display of fun-family entertainment from Grapevine Mills Mall. (Legoland was our original flurry of fun!)
This absolutely fabulous display of the wonders of our ocean will open to once again a tremendously long line of families. But I would like to share with you a way to jump to the head of the line! Purchase an annual pass online for a great value of only $45.00 and you get in through a priority entrance with much, much less waiting! This pass can also be purchased for a family of four for only $170.00, an additional $10.00 savings. With the annual pass you will also get special discounts in their retail store, discounts on hosting birthday parties at the aquarium and invitations to special events, plus much more!
If your looking to purchase tickets online for only a one day pass, the website also reduces the rate compared to the walk-up prices. Legoland Tickets can also be purchased on the same website, purchasing both will also provide you with a discount.
Are your little ones into sharks like my 7 year old is? Are they captivated by their sheer power and strength? Then take the Sharkwalk if you dare! For a limited time, the Sharkwalk is included with your admission ticket at no additional charge. Grab your camera because the look on your angel’s faces when they come up close to a shark, behind the protective glass of course, needs to be captured for a lifetime.
An interactive Kid’s Quiz Trail will hold your children’s attention, no matter what their age, and will provide education on top of the entertainment. A sea-life themed playzone has been constructed to help your little active ones release that pent up energy!
One more tip to my readers, if you’re heading to Grapevine Mills Mall soon, go to the Simon Guest Services Desk and ask about the specials offered to get free tickets to SEA LIFE Aquarium. Right now, if you purchase a $50 Simon American Express Gift Card, you will receive one free ticket to the Aquarium. If you purchase a $75 Gift Card, you will receive two free tickets to the Aquarium!
This incredible 40,000 square foot aquarium cost an estimated 15 million dollars to build and will house over 5,000 sea creatures. Dallas is a 6 hour drive to the nearest ocean, do you miss it like I do? Now you can take your kids to experience sea life right here!
