Sea Life SharkSEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium opened in April and will transport guests into the amazing underwater world.                     SEA LIFE Kansas City will take visitors on an enthralling 2-3 hour journey from the fresh waters of the Missouri River, into the mighty Mississippi River then out into the warm blue coral strewn waters of the Caribbean Sea, ending in the deep dark abyss of the Atlantic Ocean.                                                             Come nose to nose with sharks and prepare for astonishingly close views of everything from starfish and seahorses to graceful rays. A centerpiece will be a huge tropical ocean tank with a walk-through underwater tunnel.
