Planet Jellies At Ripley’s Aquarium: An Out Of This World Encounter In Myrtle Beach

Ripley’s Aquarium

has long been a favorite destination for anyone visiting the Myrtle Beach area, and was recently awarded a coveted Travelers’ Choice award from Trip Advisor. Located amongst the shops, attractions and eateries of beautiful Broadway at the Beach, the Aquarium is home to a huge assortment of cool and unusual sea creatures, in true Ripley’s fashion! Get up close and personal with spotted eagle and cownose stingrays, come face to face with Green Moray eels, moon snails and other slimy animals in the SLIME exhibit, and see a scary assortment sharks as they swim overhead and around you, within the gliding 340-foot Dangerous Reef tunnel. Kids and adults alike will also love the Mermaid show, and touch tank filled with bamboo sharks, horseshoe crabs, and stingrays.

Brand new for 2015 is Planet Jellies. This beautiful expansion to Ripley’s Aquarium will mesmerize and transfix visitors. Being surrounded by thousands of jellies (including the moon jelly, the upside down jelly, the Atlantic sea nettle, the Japanese sea nettle, and the spotted lagoon jelly), backlit with color changing displays, is an out of this world experience and a must-see for all! As you enter this permanent new wing, soothing music will greet you while educational displays teach you all about these fascinating creatures, including their lifecycle, habits, and what to do if you are ever stung by one. Visitors can participate in interactive exhibits and can even get the chance to pet a special tank full of jellies — a perfectly safe, sting-free experience of course. Guests are also welcome to watch the jellyfish eat at 3:30PM daily.

Tickets to Ripley’s Aquarium range from $14.99 for children to $22.99 for adults. Or save money by buying a combo pass to one or more of Ripley’s other area attractions: Ripley’s Odditorium, Ripley’s Haunted Adventure, Ripley’s Mirror Maze, and the Ripley’s Moving Theatre.
