Went to Ripley's Aquarium and paid $16.95 to go to something that was so not worthwhile. When you go in, it's one big room and you can pet stingrays and turtles. Then they have a moving sidewalk that moves in a circle around the large room and it is entirely glass all around you. Above you and to the left and right. They have sharks, jellyfish, other fish, etc., in the tank. Which I suppose is neat, but I won't pay it again.
I suppose if you have kids, this would be a neat place to go. They would probably like it a little better than two adults would.

The Rio Amazon exhibit displays piranha and other beautiful fish that are found in the Amazon River. You can marvel at the animals in the sea life collection, such as a giant octopus, sea anemones, coral, jellyfish, a seahorse, and an array of dazzling fish. At the Sea-For-Yourself Discovery Center, you get a chance to hold a horseshoe crab or pet a gentle ray. A dive show and marine education classes are presented hourly.
The big attraction by far is the Dangerous Reef, a 750,000-gallon tank with the world’s longest moving glide path at 330 feet. Here you glide your away through a tunnel of beautiful and brilliantly colored fishes, rays, eels, and more. You also get a close encounter with quite a few sharks! Kids, both small and over 21, will love this. It is such a thrill to be this close to sharks. In fact, it was after seeing this that we decided to get certified to scuba dive, just so I could get closer to the sharks. When we were here, the glide path was off, offering us a chance to take our time going through the tunnel.
There is a café and gift shop on the premises. There are also several chances to have your picture taken for a souvenir. As soon as you walk in the door there is someone waiting to take a picture. For more information, to find out what is happing during your trip, or to purchase advanced tickets, you can go to www.ripleysaquarium.com. You can also purchase tickets right in the front. If there is a long line outside, duck into the visitors information store right on the corner. You can purchase tickets here, as well as tickets for most of the shows in town.

This is part of the Broadway at the Beach complex.
It is unique because you are going through a tunnel with fish on both sides of you and overhead. You can either ride the conveyor belt or walk at your own pace along the edges of the belt. I was expecting more colorful fish.
I will not revisit.
