Ripley’s Aquarium is one of the most visited attractions in Gatlinburg and for good reason. It is literally teeming with aquatic life, with over 10,000 exotic sea creatures comprising more than 350 individual species. Diverse sections of the aquarium highlight coral reefs, sting rays and even local creatures like catfish.
The most popular exhibit at Ripley’s Aquarium Gatlinburg has to be the Shark Lagoon. Visitors travel along a 340-foot long glidepath, winding their way through an underwater tunnel while coming face-to-face with snappers, tarpons, grunts, squirrelfish, a green sea turtle, giant stingrays, sawfish and very large sharks.
