Ring in the New Year at Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies

Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies will ring in the New Year with its 7th Annual Dance with the Sharks New Year's Eve Party. Guests will have the opportunity to explore the undersea world of Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies while they party the night away with 10,000 exotic ocean creatures, including 12-foot sharks.

The New Year's Eve Party features two separate dance areas, one with an 8-piece dance band and another with a DJ, an unlimited feast of over the top hors d'oeuvres plus a champagne toast at midnight.

"Our party is both unique and fun. You can dance, eat, and party throughout the aquarium until 1 a.m., plus just prior to midnight we can all go out to the aquarium's plaza and watch the city of Gatlinburg's fireworks display and ball drop. It's always an incredible event," said Steve File, general manager of Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies.

The party is great for the entire family. Those wishing to bring children can take advantage of the aquarium's Educational Childcare program, which is offered to children ages 3 to 12. Advance arrangements for childcare are required.

The party price is $109.99 per couple, $69.99 for singles, and $29.99 for children (3-12). Educational childcare is available for children ages 3 to 12. All prices are plus tax. Reservations are required.The aquarium is located at traffic light #5 on the Parkway in Gatlinburg, TN and is open 365 days a year. The Aquarium closes to the public at 9 p.m. on New Year's Eve and opens to party guests at 9:01 p.m.
