Ripley's aquarium was laid out well, the docents were knowledgable and fun to talk to. The moving walkway was a perfect way to get up close & personal with sharks! Worth every nickel - tip - there re coupons available for this - look around and save yourself a few bucks.

We have been here several times over the years and unfortunately the experience never changes. The shows are basically the same from year to year as well. If its your first visit I would recommend stopping by but its not worth return trips for the price.

Very good if you have little ones. My daughter absolutely loved it. Did not take very long to see all there was offer. A little expensive.

I have been to Ripley's Aquarium 4 times a let me say it's a nice aquarium. Every time I have gone there a lot of things that changes so it's not the same unless you live down there. Make a trip down every summer and I make sure that my family and i visit Ripley's Aquarium when where down there.

Was super impressed with this aquarium. We got discount tickets at our hotel. Was worth every penny. Watched a diver feed the stingrays and sharks swim right over your head in a clear tunnel

We went to Ripley's for the first time and enjoyed our visit. In December they offered a special addition: 50 Christmas trees, one decorated for each state, and we wanted to see those. One con was that some were in very dark areas, and not spotlighted, so you could not really see what was on them. The aquarium exhibits were... More
