t was a very rainy day in Pigeon Forge and the whole world was in line to visit Ripley’s Aquarium. It must be the place to go!
This aquarium is voted #1 by Trip Advisor. That is an awesome score to have and we were excited before we even got there!
Where do I even begin? I took a ton of pictures so need to narrow it down here a bit for you…
We walked into this view overlooking Discovery Bay where you can touch Horseshoe Crabs and walk around to play with other interactive displays including saying hello to Nemo!
The kids can climb in that tub to get a closer look…my child disappeared before the picture was snapped. sigh.
This area leads to my boys favorite part of the aquarium….dinosaurs. Yes Dinosaurs at the aquarium!
Not just plain models, but large moving reptiles. P’Diddy is standing right next to one here, but ask him if he went near the T-Rex. No he didn’t!
C’Man climbed in as close as he could get in the penguin room and took some great up close and personal pictures!
Do you spot him in this photo?
I had two favorite parts. The first was Shark Lagoon. Step on the moving floor and glide underneath the sharks! eeeek! You get really close, but it awesome. I could see all their teeth and everything!
We spotted a cool looking hammerhead shark, a sea turtle and other various sealife that we were ooohing and ahhhing over.
As we were moving along, I was chatting to the lady next to me and telling her she HAD to go touch a stingray.
Did you know that stingrays were soft? They have a surprisingly sleek feel to them and honestly I could sit there and pet them all day.
Fantastic place with so much to see!
