This was the one place the Heather wanted to go so bad. She spent almost the entire day there and we still had to drag her out. She love animals of any kind and was in awe with everything she saw. Being able to touch the stingrays and the horseshoe crabs was a little scary for her at first but once she got use to it wow.


"Swimming with the sharks"

Ripley was great the shark tank is something every one should see and the sting rays were wonderful

Description

About Ripley’s Aquarium

Ripley's Aquarium is an 85,000 square foot, multilevel collection of wonders of the sea.

From the large tanks to small tanks, their exhibits are interactive, educational, and fun for the whole family.

In addition to their year-round sea life exhibits, they have seasonal and traveling exhibits so that each time you visit you can experience something new.

Start your adventure right when you enter at the Entrance Tank, a perfect time for a photo op at this tubular tank.

Move down the sloped ramp to see the tropical Rio Amazon exhibit full of piranhas, the giant Arapaima fish, poison dart frogs, and more.

Next, check-out Discovery Center, a shallow pool with touch friendly horseshoe crabs, sea urchins and star fish.

Take the glidepath through the largest exhibit at Ripley's Aquarium, the Dangerous Reef. Step on the glidepath and ride through the tunnel where large sharks, sea turtles, fish, and eels swim above and beside you. Fear not! There are 4.5 inches of acrylic glass between you and the marine animals. Stand in awe of the wonders of Rainbow Rock, a coral reef teeming with colorful, tropical fish.

Take in the ethereal sights of the Living Gallery, seahorses, sea dragons, octopi, and jellyfish lazily float along in their glass cubes and bubble shape tanks.

At Ray Bay, you can watch over 100 rays being fed and interacting with the divers during several daily shows.

Saturdays and Sundays watch a live mermaid show three times daily where the mermaids swim among the ray. Then head upstairs where you can interact with the rays by petting them as they swim in a shallow pool, unfortunately the mermaids are too shy to visit you at the petting pool!

Ripley's Aquarium is open 365 days a year, Sundays - Thursdays 9 am-8 pm and Fridays - Saturdays 9 am-9 pm.

Tickets can be purchased ahead of time online or at the box office by the entrance when you visit. Ticket prices vary for adults from $19.99-21.99, inquire about special group pricing.
