Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies


Whether you visit Gatlinburg and the Great Smoky Mountains regularly, or you and your family are planning your first visit, Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies is a MUST SEE during your visit!

Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies 'much anticipated' Grand Opening on this whopping 66 MILLION DOLLAR project was on December 15, 2000! This opening date was pushed back and pushed back, when the local paper ran the story that the attraction may be opening that weekend, it almost seemed 'too good to be true'. Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, did in fact open that following weekend! This was never a 'rushed' project, and many of the delays were simply due to the management's un-willingness to compromise the animal's safety, leaving no stone unturned, delivering this unsurpassed 'underwater fantasy world' that will literally take your breath away!
