About Ripley's Aquarium, Myrtle Beach
Anything attached with the tag ‘Ripley’s’ is sure to catch our attention and make us want to check it. And this aquarium on Myrtle Beach is one of the highest visited attractions in South Carolina. Located along the promenade, the Ripley’s Aquarium is one of the best maintained state-of-the-art facilities you will come across. View the creatures of the sea up-close and personal without having to even get wet. The Dangerous Reef is a 750,000 gallon tank that has been structured like a tunnel to give you the illusion of walking through the water with the marine animals. Kids in particular love the Sea-For-Yourself and Pirates: Fact and Folklore exhibits which give them a chance to explore and learn something new.

We (2 adults and 2 kids age 6 and 3) absolutely loved the Ripley's Aquarium! Not only was Ripley's amazing, but the entire Broadway center was amazing. We visited this are 4 different times during our 5 day stay. The shops and restaurants were all great. We purchased our aquarium tickets online as we sat in the parking lot which saved about $12 for our entire party. There were lots of exhibits with hands on activities to offer, plus a small play area and concession halfway through. We didn't do any other attractions at the aquarium but spent a good 2.5 hours walking through. Awesome trip!
it's okay at best. The exhibits are nice and it's far less crowded later in the evening but I felt there wasn't much to offer. Not worth $26 in my opinion. Maybe good if you have little ones that couldn't handle a larger set up.
There are several exhibits but it's extremely difficult to navigate with any crowds and even more so with a stroller. There is no clear flow of traffic which slows everyone down. Each exhibit is like a room with various size windows in a wall. Very small viewing area and too high for smaller (age 5 and under) children to see. We were constantly having to lift our younger ones to see. The shark tunnel was the best part of the whole "aquarium." We are quite disappointed in the amount we spent for the experience we had. Although customer service was knowledgeable and efficient, they were far from friendly and welcoming. We won't be going back.
My boyfriend and I took our 15 month old daughter a few days ago while we were on vacation in Myrtle Beach. We got in for $20 total because the aquarium was having a deal for North and South Carolina residents where we get in for $10, money saver there. Not only did our daughter love the aquarium but we did too. I love the atmosphere and the environment. Our daughter became the "horseshoe crab whisperer", the minute she stuck her hand in to pet one, all of them came to her. We didn't notice until the man running the exhibit pointed out how many were in our corner. Anyways, I love the underwater tunnel, I just love the whole place in general. The only thing missing was the penguins (they have penguins at the Ripley's Aquarium in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee.) Hopefully someday they will get penguins.
The aquarium was a great experience. The shark tunnel was mesmerizing and a lot longer than I expected it to be! We loved the jelly fish exhibit too! It wasn't over crowded, just the normal crowds to be expected. The one con is probably the exit that is through the huge gift shop.. seriously it's a big trip for children.
