I expect a lot from ripleys aquariums, the one in Gatlinburg, TN is fantastic. This one however let me down a bit. Its much smaller with less exhibits and the price was still fairly high for what you get to experience. I was also expecting...More

I don't think you will need snacks. I sure you could take bottled water. It doesn't take that long.
