“Lifesize dinosaurs”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 May 2012

We went early after the aquarium opened. It was fun looking at the dinosaurs, exotic fish, sharks, sting rays and stone crabs. It took us about 2 hours to walk through. The cost was $20.99ea. There is also a IMAX theater but extra to attend. The boardwalk around the aquarium was enjoyable as well. Tip# try the doc popcorn and feed the fish below the pier. The speed boat racer looked fun but our time was limited. There are a few amusement rides and a arcade. There are shops and places to eat. You could probably spend hours at this location walking and taking in the sights. Enjoy your stroll...

“It was ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012

Well a rainy day took us here instead of the beach, a bit costly & not that much to do inside, if you are going, go early.
The travelator under the Aquariam is worth the $$$$$ you pay to get in though, this is brilliant.

“MUST Go Trip for ALL!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 April 2012

The Aquarium is one of the most unique attractions in Myrtle Beach and if you go especially after having a fun morning on the beach it's like having never left the Ocean! And that's a good feeling if you love Ocean and marine life as much as we do. Always a must go visit for my family!
