This new exhibit at Ripley’s Aquarium will make you feel like you’re in Hawaii, check out Aloha Cove!

Aloha Cove at Riplely's Aquarium is interactive and even smells tropical, too! This exhibit appeals to all the senses.

Ripley’s Aquarium in Myrtle Beach gives you all the summertime feels, no matter what time of year you visit.  Their brand new Aloha Cove exhibit is right in line with making you feel all warm and sunshiny.  We had to check it out!

As you walk into the exhibit, you’ll stroll down a hallway adorned with surfboards, Hawaiian words like “Aloha,” and flowers.  Plus, you’ll smell the sweet scent of coconuts and pineapples, and it isn’t a figment of your imagination.  The exhibit actually is scented.  You’ll also find the perfect photo opportunities throughout.  Aloha Cove boasts so many opportunities to interact including Bongos, a hula dancer cutout, a shark’s mouth, and more!  You’ll be having so much fun, you won’t even realize all that you’re learning.  The walls are lined with fun facts about the Hawaiian culture, as well as facts about surfing, and volcanoes.

Aloha Cove offers a fun, informative experience for all ages!  It will be on display from now until the Summer of 2020.
