Ripley's Aquarium is located at Broadway at the Beach. Move through a see-through tunnel while fish and sharks swim all around you. See ray sharks, dive shows, marine education presentations, creatures from the Amazon rain forest, octopus, sea dragons and thousands of colorful fish. Touch horseshoe crabs and rays. You can buy family, season and business passes, and the aquarium can be rented for business meetings. The Polynesian Review, an evening of food, dancing and hula lessons, is held Tuesday through Thursday from 7:30p to 10p. Sunday Brunch is 9a to 2p.
For the cash we spent on combo tickets, we could have went to a theme park for a day. Ripley's needs to cut all prices by 80% to make these worth the money. I do not recommend to anyone, except to the elite, affluent, uppity travelers.
Of all the Ripley's attractions in Myrtle Beach, this is the only one worth going to. The rest are boring and lame. This aquarium is not the biggest or most exciting one you'll ever see, but while in Myrtle Beach, it IS worth a walk through. I will agree it is costly, but most things on vacation ARE costly. Young kids will surely enjoy it. Especially the moving sidewalks through the BIG tank (filled with sharks, rays, swordfish, and other very cool marine life) TRY to visit during the off seasons if you can. During the peak tourist times (June, July, August), it can be very crowded and make for an unpleasant day. Takes about an hour to go through. Go early to avoid the crowds too!!!
This was way too expensive for what you get. It is so over crowded and small that we didn't enjoy ourselves. They put more into the decorations than the tanks. We didn't find anything in the tanks especially interesting. This place has way more hype than it deserves. I've been to many aquariums and this was the worst. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
I have been to other aquariums, and this one pales in comparison. It only lasts about an hour, and it is so crowded that you can't even enjoy yourself. Most of the aquariums I have been to have a "flow" to them, but this one felt like a free for all. It is too pricey for such a small aquarium.
Not worth the admission price. $42 for 2 adults to walk through this place in 40 minutes. I had already visited the Ripley's Aquarium in the Smokies at Gatlinburg, Tennessee and this one was exactly the same. I expected better since it was near the ocean. If in Myrtle Beach I would reccomend that tourists avoid all the Ripley's rip-off attractions.
We have taken our daughter several times. She is 6and never gets tired of the exhibits. While my husband enjoy going it's too expensive and usually so crowded people keep bumping into you and it's not a very good experience. I think if they would reduce their prices somewhat and have some sort of organization where everybody was't standing on top of each other to view the exhibits it would be a much more pleasureable experience. However, kids love it and they have alot of beautiful exhibits but I still think it's to much money for what you get. I guess alot of the traffic that goes through this attraciton are people whi have never been before.
The place took maybe 45 minutes to walk through. It is nice but not worth the money. if you have been to any other aquarium you def. will not enjoy this experience. I have been to the Pittsburgh Zoo and had a better time.
our kids never get tired of going,and we love it too,it's a priviledge to live in myrtle beach & have access to this without having to travel to florida or california for the kids to enjoy somthing special (nautical)
we took our 6 grandchildren to the aquarium and i think the adults enjoyed it as much as the children. it was quite expensive for a family of 14, maybe they should give lower rates to children under 12. but, all in all, it was a great place to go.
