Visiting Aquarium day after Thanksgiving

We will be spending the Thanksgiving holiday in Atlanta and are thinking about visiting the aquarium on Friday. Does anyone know if the aquarium will be particularly crowded the day after Thanksgiving? When would be the best time to visit. The hours are 9 am to 9 pm.

I can see that going either way. People may be out shopping or home watching football. Or they may be taking advantage of the day off school to go to the aquarium. This person reported crowds on Thanksgiving Day:


My advice is to get these as early as possible. If the 9am slot is available, take it. The crowds accumulate over the course of the day, so earlier is better. Also, book your Dolphin Tales times and get there well in advance to snag good seats, as that fills up.

Reserving aquarium tickets in advance is a MUST on a holidy.

I think it will be crowded. Go early, or go later in the day after the crowds start to head home.
