This aquarium is awesome! I mean, really awesome!! If we saw nothing else, this would be worth the trip! It is 85,000 sq ft this aquarium has incredible fish, an outstanding shark area, and many other species!

There are parts where you can pet horseshoe crabs, stick your hand in water with little cleaning fish, and a huge tunnel that you can ride through to get a feel for what it is like to be surrounded by sea life.  There a little tunnels that children enjoy using to pop up mid exhibit.  There are beautiful exhibits and amazing exotic things to sea such as leafy sea dragons and scorpion fish.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium

Visit the strangest place in Gatlinburg! Ripley’s Believe It or Not! has been proudly freaking out families for over 90 years. Come and see the museum that inspired the hit TV series.

My kids had a blast here! There are so many weird things and my kids got a kick out of all of it! Where else can you make shadows stay on a wall and rub a Buddha with shredded money in his belly? I think my kids were really amazed how other people have lived and some of the amazing things they have done. This museum highlights that in the craziest way!

Ripley’s Guinness World of Records

Guinness World Records Attraction will bring the amazing book to life through incredible displays, games, trivia, themed galleries, and more! You can even try to break a record while you’re there!

This one was my kid’s favorite! They LOVED this museum. You get to see the world’s largest and shortest man, see amazing records that have been broken and even get to do hands on experiments to see how good you would be at things!

There is something for everyone here! There was even the largest crochet blanket and book collection and that was right up my alley so I took a lot of pictures of those! Your family will love talking about the interesting things they see here, it is an educational trip all the way around! Ripeys2 Ripley’s Haunted Adventure

Ripley’s Haunted Adventure is a world-class Haunted Attraction & Gatlinburg’s #1 Haunted House! Frights, Fun, and Screams for everyone. That high pitched scream you hear… yea that’s you! Come visit, if you dare.

You need to be 6 years of age to enter, there are actors whose mission it is to scare you so if that is not your thing keep that in mind! It is very well done and really does scare you! The place is very creepy and real looking!

It’s going to be a bumpy ride. Better strap on your seat belt for this film. A State-of-the-Art Motion Simulator! Ride the move, feel the rush. Experience the thrill on a movie you ride, powered by REAL D!

This is right next door to the Haunted Mansion and my family enjoyed this one. I get motion sick so easy and recently have struggled with bouts of vertigo so I sat this one out. My husband and my boys loved it! It is so fun feeling like you are really there and experiencing the different places and they loved that about it!

Ripley’s Mirror Maze

Come visit Ripley’s Marvelous Mirror Maze and Candy Factory and see if you can find your way out through mirrored corners, dead ends, and infinite reflections filled with LED lights. Don’t worry we send search parties every half hour!

This was really fun! You have no idea which direction to head and which door will lead to what. It is all a guessing game although my kids swear there is skill in it! You get to see incredible mirrors and lights and the place keeps you guessing at every turn. I loved it because we started cracking up and I love it when we have a good laugh as a family!

Ripley’s Davy Crockett Mini Golf

With the Great Smoky Mountains as the backdrop, two beautifully landscaped, 18-hole courses will amaze and delight you with animated displays throughout! They are just outside Gatlinburg, in Sevierville.

The golf course had some beautiful water areas, I love when a course has pretty things to look at; it makes the playing even better seeing all the beautiful areas! We did this right before going home and it was a perfect way to end our trip!

IMG_8135 I cannot tell you how much fun we had at Ripley’s in Gaitlinburg! My kids said it was one of the best trips we ever took, we had so much fun! If you bought the combo ticket you could have a full weekend and that is a win win for your whole family!

I was given tickets to the Ripley’s Attractions in Gatlinburg for review! All opinions are 100 percent mine!
