|About these ratings|
Located in the Broadway-at-the-Beach complex, Ripley's Aquarium is one of the most popular aquariums in the country. The most noteworthy exhibit here is Dangerous Reef, a huge 750,000-gallon underwater tunnel that you can walk through with sharks and fish swimming overhead and besides you. Finish your tour of the aquarium with a stop by the interactive Discovery Center exhibit, where touch pools house creatures like eels and horseshoe crabs.
Recent travelers say that the aquarium can get uncomfortably crowded. A TripAdvisor user says: "EVERYONE goes in the rain and I'm not kidding. If the line is long when you get there save it for another time."
Admission into the aquarium also gets you into the dive shows and special exhibitions if there is one. If you plan to go to other Ripley attractions in the area -- like Ripley's Believe It or Not! Museum or Ripley's Haunted Adventure -- consider buying a combination ticket from any of these places. Discounts are available on all tickets for kids under 12.
