I didn't want to leave. There was so much to see and do. All of us were in awe of the aquarium. We were sent two adult tickets, but paid for my son and sister to go with us. The adult tickets are $18.99 which I honestly think is a little expensive, but there is so much to see and do at this aquarium. Here are a bunch of pictures from the hours we spent there. I'm going to start off small. See this HUGE aquarium? It is small compared to what you're about to see.
Check this out. It had a revolving belt that you can stand on and you get to "ride" through this long aquarium tunnel. I felt like I was in the ocean as all of these amazing creatures were swimming around me.
Evan was so in awe that he wouldn't even look at me so I could take a picture.
There were just so many things that kept the kids interested. Evan was wanting to jump from one thing to another.
Isabella was completely intrigued as well.
I wish I had a better picture, but this was HUGE. It had a bunch of stingrays and you could lay down all around it to "pet" them. The end was deep enough where people could get in the water and snorkel.
They even had this really neat aquarium where you could crawl in the middle and get your picture taken. I wish my husband wouldn't have zoomed up so close-it was really neat. Evan refused to get in it. This is me and my baby sister.
This was on the floor. To the side you see where you can pick up horseshoe crabs and then there is that huge fish slide.
I'm not gonna lie, I was a little freaked by picking up the horseshoe crab.
This was the Lethal Weapon exhibit with all of the deadliest fish.
The wealth of knowledge was amazing. They had these colorful signs above each creature telling what it was and what it did.
They also had these "secret boxes" where you put your hand on it and the cover flies up to reveal what information was inside. Evan thought this was the coolest thing ever.
Please tell me that I'm not the only one with problems trying to get our WHOLE family in the same picture? This was at the very front of the aquarium and all I wanted was a picture of all of us in front of it.
"Come on Evan, stand by me."
My husband finally came over, but Isabella was looking around and Evan kept drifting. Not to mention, I kept coming up with these weird looks and my sunglasses made my hair poof on the top. Why didn't someone tell me?!?! Needless to say, it never worked-but it would have made for a cute family shot!
We had an absolute blast at the aquarium and our only regret is that we couldn't spend more time there. We were meeting some people for dinner and even though we were in there for a couple hours, it seemed like time flew by. If you are ever near Myrtle Beach, SC, I highly recommend Ripley's Aquarium. If you like what you see, visit them on facebook.
This was not a paid post and honest opinions were used. The opinions are solely my own and may very from others. We were given two adult tickets to write this post. I paid for my sister and we also had to pay for Evan.
