    I am complaining about the discount offers. I received an email offering $5.00 off each ticket for the aquarium. When I tried to purchase the tickets for 4 adults, I was redirected to the bundle offers. No where did it say the $5 discount could not be used. Using the code America14 would not work. It just stayed the same. No explanation, just would not take it. After numerous attempts, I called the phone number at the bottom. I spoke with Jonathan, who was not helpful. He said there was a computer problem and to just keep trying. From about 8:pm til midnight, I kept trying every 15 minutes or so. This morning I called the number again. I got TerryLynn. She tried to help, took my phone number and called back later. I was told that you could not combine the coupon code and the bundle. The site is set up very badly. It should tell you that and not direct you to the bundle site when trying to order. I am very disappointed. You just lost $120.00 because of poor organization. This is a very bad first impression of a company. If just buying tickets is such a nightmare, how will a visit be?
    I believe this is called bait and switch advertising. You sent me an email with an offer. When I tried to use that offer, I could not. This leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I’m sure we will find many other things to do on our vacation instead of spending our money with this company. They say the best advertisement is word of mouth. The same holds true for the worst. I will be sure to tell others of my bad experience.

      Hi June,

      I’m sorry to hear of your experience in dealing with Ripley’s. Unfortunately we do not have control over their ticket page and all we are provided is the link to their page and the coupon code. On their page that we link to, the individual Aquarium tickets are underneath the bundle packages. I can assure you there was no intent on any “bait and switch” as we work hard to inform everyone of the best, honest deals possible in town. It could have, however, been made more clearly on Ripley’s ticketing page. I would recommend forwarding your complaint directly to Ripley’s at in hopes they can resolve this for you and perhaps improve their ticket purchasing page as well.

      PLAN “B”————-SEARCHING.

      • BEAU says

        there is not one place to even search for any other option other than “combos”—when “specials” r advertised on tv commercial for $10 adult admissions to, ” ripleys aquarium of the smokies” and similar costs with huge–huge savings for 4 yr olds & infants free——-how are we—the customers to purchase these specials that r only avaiable until labor day??? i am in shock!!! my daughters are disappointed. my grand daughters don’t understand why it’s advertised for special admission adults $10 with discounts as well for children. 8 month old–free, age 4—much less. how can u advertise this special on tv and say this special offer and not have it on ur site???

        shed some dim light on this please. the day is planned for a birthday gift.

        • Gatlinburg TN Guide says

          Hey Beau,

          I completely understand what you’re saying and I highly suggest contacting Ripley’s directly (we’re not a part of Ripley’s) to voice these frustrations with them so they can hopefully make these specials more clear for visitors. If you are a resident of TN, you can purchase tickets at their ticket booth for $10 each when you mention “10 for TN” and show your TN ID….this offer is good through Labor Day.

  2. Michelle says

    We are going to Gatlinburg on the 30th, so the 10 for tn is for the aqarium? Im looking for discount codes, is it better to just purchase at the booth
