Ready to immerse yourself in the wonders of an underwater kingdom? Ripley’s® Aquarium is a US$40-million, state-of-the-art, 87,000-square-foot (26,518-square-meter) aquarium experience. Surrounding visitors on all sides of the aquarium is Dangerous Reef, a 750,000-gallon tank populated by fascinating shark life. Other features include Ray Bay, highlighting a variety of rays from multiple viewing levels, and Friendship Flats, where guests touch Atlantic rays, Southern rays, cow-nose rays, spotted eagle rays, and bonnet-head sharks. The Living Gallery features a collection of delicate undersea life—including Pacific Giant Octopus, sea anemones, living corals, jellies, and weedy sea dragons. For a hands-on experience, hold horseshoe crabs at the Sea-For-Yourself Discovery Center, an interactive, multimedia playground and educational resource center that interests both children and adults. The aquarium presents dive shows and marine education classes hourly.

New at Ripley's Aquarium for the year 2010, the Lethal Weapons exhibit explores how sea creatures of all shapes and sizes fight for survival in their underwater battlefield. Featuring dozens of the most shocking and deadly creatures—from a Portuguese Man of War that stings everything it touches to a crowns of thorns starfish—as well as hands-on displays, Lethal Weapons aims to give each visitor a spine-tingling and unique experience.
