Ripley's Aquarium, Myrtle Beach Reviews - Write a Review
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!
I think the sharks and stingrays were my favorite. Enjoyed getting to touch a jellyfish swimming for the first time without being stung!! Also got to touch stingrays and horseshoe crabs - how cool is that?! The tanks were all well kept and the aquatics were just beauitful. Plenty of room for everyone. Handicap accessible which made it easier on my knees. Staff was pleasant and eager to answer questions. Highlight of our afternoon!!
Another tourist exploit. I seriously wish there was a place kids could go to see some sharks and other interesting fish without paying so much. The facility is amazing and the staff was helpful we just didn’t think it was worth $90 for our family. Not to mention the $3 to feed sting rays .05 cents worth of food. Or $26 to buy a $1 picture of the family. I realize these things have costs but I guess we are just getting tired of rediuculous prices.
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.
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.
