Great place to take kids of any age, I had 3 teenagers and they all enjoyed it. We have been to Ripley’s Aquarium in Gatlinburg Tennessee several times and Ripley’s MB is the same yet different. Yes they have the sweet shark tunnel, kinda different...More

My biggest complaint is the "50% off admission after 5pm" billboards all over town. Nowhere does it say anything about being only on certain days, and when you call you get an automated system which also never specifies. Felt a bit like bait and switch....More

Ripley's as a whole was less than I expected. This was my favorite of the 5 Ripley's places to go. It was not as big as I would have expected but I enjoyed the glass bottom boat ride over the shark tank. I learned a...More

All I can say it is well worth the money to visit this attraction especially if you have young children. My daughter loved being able to pet the Stingrays and the jellyfish. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definetly be visiting again..

This is my second Ripley's Aquarium. I've been to the Gatlinburg one several times, and in my last review I noted that there's an increasing focus on micropayments. Pay for a picture, pay for a souvenir, pay to feed the rays, pay to ride a...More

Over $30 for an hour worth of aquarium. The aquarium in Pine Knoll Shores, NC is the same size but waaaay cheaper. Don’t get me wrong, it was clean, and had great staff, the shark walk through was cool, but $30+ for a small aquarium...More

This place was a nice diversion on a rainy day. It’s not as big as say the New York Aquarium or the Aquarium in Camden New Jersey, but it’s very nice and well managed with a few fun experiences like a Mermaid show.
