One of nature’s most misunderstood species and state-of-the-art technology collide in Shark Mission, a new interactive zone that launches at SEA LIFE Aquarium Grapevine on Friday, March 7.
In Shark Mission, visitors can immerse themselves 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 guests of all ages to watch several species of sharks swim beneath their 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. Visitors 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.
SEA LIFE Aquarium Hours: Monday – Saturday 10 a.m. to 7:30 p.m. and Sunday 11 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. - attraction remains open 90 minutes after last admission.
