Ripley's, Rainforest Cafe and the Sea Life Aquarium

We took a mini family vacation to Grapevine, Texas. We had been looking into vacations and would love to go to Atlantis, but seeing as it would cost us around $10,000 we went the cheaper route.

Ripley's Believe It or Not

On the way to Grapevine, we stopped at Ripley's Believe It or Not in Grand Prairie, Texas to the Odditorium and the Palace of Wax. You definitely get your money's worth here. There is even a "horror" part in the Palace of Wax that we decided to go through and I totally had a freak out. In order to enter the Horror part, you have to go through this hallway that has an air bag type of thing that you have to squeeze through. It started closing in behind me as I was going through and I started having a mini anxiety attack, turned around to go back out and my sweet husband called out to me from the other side so I was comfortable going back through. It was neat, but scary as all get out for me.


Rainforest Cafe

After we left Ripley's we checked into our hotel and headed over to the Grapevine mall for a bite to eat at the Rainforest Cafe. Since we had to wait for an hour and twenty minutes for a table to become available, we walked the entire mall. This mall is huge! And awesome! It took us an hour to walk the entire mall and we only stopped at one store.


It took us a while to get our food, but the atmosphere kept us entertained and the food was amazing!

Sea Life Aquarium

The next day we headed back over to the mall to visit the Sea Life Aquarium. I don't like to leave negative reviews, but the price wasn't worth what we got to see. It was neat, we enjoyed seeing the sea life, but it was quite short. They have a map on the outside of the aquarium and it is very misleading as to what is actually inside because it makes it seem like a huge place with tons to look at. But, if you have small children, I think they would really enjoy going. My favorite part was seeing them feed the stingrays.

 

We had a great time and I would love to go back to the mall.

If you are ever in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, you should definitely go to the Gulfarium Marine Adventure Park.
