We had a great time! Very easy to see why this is rated the #1 aquarium in the US according to their sign & print materials. My wife and I went to Shedd Aquarium in Chicago a year ago and enjoyed Ripley's much more. Very neat to see the tunnels they have for kids to explore the exhibits, too.
Definitely would recommend to all who are in/visit the Gatlinburg area.
