No bones about it: ‘Planet Jellies’ fascinates visitors at Ripley’s Aquarium in Myrtle Beach

Make no bones about it. Even without eyes, brains, blood, a hard skeleton and a specialized digestive system, jellyfish arouse a fascination.

“Planet Jellies” has landed as a new wing within Ripley’s Aquarium at Broadway at the Beach, in Myrtle Beach, all with a sting to stimulate and educate with spectacular views and extra understanding of these creatures, and six kinds on display.

Just walking into this new, permanent gallery where a big concession stand once stood, visitors might feel like they’re entering a darker, but enlightening world, especially with the soothing music and all the tall mirrors and rotating illumination of colors on the various tanks.
