NEW - SEA LIFE Aquarium Kansas City

SEA LIFE Kansas City Aquarium, opened in April 2012, will transport you into the amazing underwater world. SEA LIFE Kansas City takes 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 humble starfish and seahorses to graceful rays. In addition, a stunning centerpiece is a huge tropical ocean tank with a walk-through underwater tunnel. To get any closer you’d have to get wet!

This is Merlin’s fifth SEA LIFE Center attraction to open in the USA, and SEA LIFE at Crown Center highlights all of the qualities which have gained the brand the support and endorsement of marine experts worldwide.
