Excellent visit. My girls & son met the mermaids which created a lot of fun & excitement. Only need about 2-3 hours. The aquarium is on the smaller end.

This was a small Ripleys and not worth the twenty dollars. It was enjoyable nothing spectacular however. It's located at the Grand strand so there's other things to do.

We have visited the Ripley's Aquarium before, as nice and engaging as it is, it seems to just keep getting better. They add sections of species and, especially considering the underwater walkway, it just pulls you in and keeps you engaged. Great fun for everyone.

We had a blast everyone from Micah at the ticket booth to the young ladies that operated the glass bottom boat were wonderful.

Disappointed. Not a lot to see. Also, it was not cheap. Thank goodness I received a discount. Worst aquarium I've ever been to.

My kids loved the vist to the aquarium. They have three touching stations. Horseshoe crab, jellyfish, and stingrays. Their shark tank has some large sharks in it and a wide variety of fish. I thought it was rather pricey for a couple hour visit but...More

we bought the aquarium tickets at the believe or not attraction and walked right in when we got there, they just scanned the ticket.
