Cool place tons of interactive exhibits for the kids including a live mermaid show. The shark tank is great! Make sure you check out the tunnel and the flesh eating fish. We bought a package that included another Ripleys attraction but GPS had a hard time finding it and it was not very close to the aquarium. If you are... More

This place was awful. I was told by a friend not to do it but I did anyhow. The sharks were OK but that's it. Tons of people. Very small. You can get thru it in 30 minutes. Total rip off!!

My kids loved this, but the price is a bit high. It was really crowded when we went and felt like we were fighting to see a lot of the animals, but was overall a good experience.

I think it would be nice to choose the park of our own to combine into the package. because Ripley believe it or not wasn't one of choice.

Visited on Monday 7/21 late afternoon. The place was totally jammed with people. I was honestly shocked at how many people were in this place, even after knowing how jammed the whole area is. There were too many people to really see or enjoy any of the sights. The price was ridiculous - $25 for adults, $16 for tweens and... More

If i had the chance to do it again I would save my money. For the price, there really aren't that many displays. Yes, the sharks are great and if this is your inly chance to go to an aquarium then by all means go. If you have access to a quality aquarium near you, skip this one.

My family and I have taken our young children to this aquarium twice and we have always been astounded by how much it costs to get in. Tickets are normally about 25 dollars a person. They do offer a military discount, however in the last year they have changed the percentage of the discount, so now you only get a... More

Our kids had a great time, there were lots of things to see. .. It was a little crowded but that was to be expected this time of year! It was very clean inside and well maintained! They even have a small food court, again pricey, but convenient!
