Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies
Ripley’s® Aquarium of the Smokies is literally teaming with life – their 10,000 exotic sea creatures comprise more than 350 individual species. With 1.4 million gallon saltwater the aquarium features 12-foot sharks in the world's longest underwater tunnel. There are more fish in this aquarium than there are people living in the entire town of Gatlinburg. Although Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies is hundreds of miles from the ocean, the scenic beauty and the abundance of water all around make the town of Gatlinburg a “natural” location for a world-class aquarium, America’s most fun aquarium.
