“Great aquarium.”
Reviewed January 5, 2013

It is a great aquarium. Loved that you could walk thru the main exhibit with fish on both sides, and above you. We spent several hours there, and if we were with children would have stayed longer. Yes, it is pricey, but worth every penny. Their Christmas decorations were a tree for each state, decorated with state appropiate ornaments.( Independance hall for PA, Surf boards for Hawaii etc.).

“Better than I expected, well worth the money”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

What a wonderful place. My only suggestion is to get there for when they open. After the place has been open for an hour, lines start forming and some exhibits get a bit crowded. But we got there for when they unlocked the doors and made a trip through everything and even had enough time to go through the under water tunnel a second time. The under water tunnel being the best thing there. Nothing like seeing sharks of several species swimming around you. Out of our trip to Myrtle Beach, This was by far the best part about the trip and I'm glad we came here last as it put us in a better mood driving back home to Va.

“Too expensive”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

The aquarium was interesting, but rather small. We took our family of five and it cost $100... Entertained my 10 year old and 7year olds for about an hour. I felt like it was not a good value at all.

“Nice place.”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The Ripley's Aquarium is of a decent size. Not too small but big enough to spend some time in it. Seeing the sharks and stingrays swimming around was great!
