Although it was pricey, it was definitely worth it. So many different type of fish and sharks! To see them swimming and living together was truly amazing.

I will definitely return to the aquarium.

Today we went to see the aquarium. It was laid out real nice. The shark area with the moving floor was great! We also loved being able to pet stingrays. What a great day. Lots of memories were made

We visit Ripley at least once a year, and the kids often swim with the sharks and stingrays. This year we bought season passes.

TIP: Check Facebook and the aquarium web site for discounts and special offers. If you’re unsure about a season pass, no worries - you can credit your tickets toward the cost of a season pass before you leave for the day!

First off, the spring break crowd WAS CRAZY... and they make you exit through the tiny gift shop. Let's just say pure chaos. With young children this is not fun.

Second, for a 3 year old, 5 year old and two adults it was close to $90. Which is a total ripoff. There are way better aquariums that like teaching about animals instead of collecting money.

I was not impressed with this aquarium at all and will not be back.

No matter where we went, crowds of people blocked our way. Hard to even see the exhibits. The exhibits were breathtaking when you could get in to see them. Best to order tickets online before you go because there is a long ticket line. You can use the email confirmation on your phone. Beware, you MUST exit through a very crowded and difficult to navigate gift shop.
