It is a fine aquarium, but it shouldn't cost me $130-$150 for two adults and a child. It isn't THAT good.

We stop here every year on our family spring break in Gatlinburg. It's become a tradition. See you next year!

Great place for a family trip. Lots to do. Spent all day here. They take your pictures a couple times throughout the visit. To have them printed is a bit pricey.

I read great reviews but was still unsure... I am now sure that this is a must especially if you have kids. We will bring the kids when we return. I thought the tunnel was going to be just a short walkthrough but I was pleasantly surprised. The gift shop was great also...I wanted to buy everything!
