The best aquarium I have ever visited. There were a lot of underwater tunnels with moving walkways for the lazy. I saw the cleaning of the fake coral in the shark tank near closing time of the aquarium. There was a deeper tunnel which had living coral and the like. There was a very diverse crowd of marine animals on display throughout the aquarium. The architecture and layout of the building was extremely impressive and easy to follow.
This aquarium is a must see for every single person alive. When you are finished at the aquarium, take a walk across the street to No Way Jose for dinner. This restaurant serves Mexican food and is also the best Mexican restaurant that I have ever been to...especially for the price that I paid!

It was a great place to go to, especially with younger children. I would not recommend going if you are going to be in a wheelchair, for it is hard to see some of the animals and readings, considering that it is always fairly busy. But, otherwise its layout was great. There were so many different fish that it was unbelievable. There was even a moving thing that you can step onto and stand on. It takes you under some sharks and saw fish.

I was really impressed, there were so many interesting creature's I had never seen before. I really enjoyed their shark exhibit for the moving walkway which allowed everyone to move along slowly and take it in without having to pay attention to where you are going.. Over all I had a blast in Gatlinburg..
