We did the entire Ripleys package for Myrtle Beach and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Our 6 and 8 year old loved the dives at the aquarium and all of the little activities.

My fiance and I visited Ripleys together probably 4 years ago? We came back down for a visit the beginning of the month and decided to return. We both felt like it was a waste of money! The SWARM room was interesting with the fish that would nibble on your fingers, but other than that we probably spent 45 minutes... More

I won 2 tickets to Ripley's Aquarium as one of my prizes I won on the Sqrambled Scuares show (see my review here on Trip Advisor), and I was able to share one of my tickets when I came in. I thoroughly enjoyed the shark tank and seeing the beautiful fish, plus the other exhibits are interesting. I don't honestly... More

My family of 5 went to Myrtle Beach, SC for about two weeks in August of 2014. We were so excited to visit the aquarium. For our family the aquarium cost about $150. It took us roughly 20 minutes to walk through the entire place. The smell was horrible, especially near the food court. We had no desire to eat... More

The only thing good in it was the underwater shark aquarium. Overall it is overpriced, very small. I had such high hopes however didnt really find it that as per my expectations.

Visited the Ripley's Aquarium in early sept 2014. Had a good time. There are a lot of different displays geared for children that are great interactive learning tools. The explanations on the wall around the exhibits are very well written and explain a lot about the animals on display. They have a large selection of different aquatic life on display.... More

The aquarium had all that you would expect and maybe more. The best part is its location, it's part of Broadway at the Beach and all of those attractions and not a stand alone attraction.

It was very crowded the day we went but it was raining so we sort of expected that a little. The aquarium is very clean and the people were really nice. We had a blast!

This is a very small aquarium and they charge a pretty hefty fee to get in. I wouldn't recommend this place unless there is bad weather and you need to find something indoors to do.
