Dance with the Sharks on New Year's Eve

Dec 06, 2013

dancewiththesharks.jpgThinking about Renting a Gatlinburg Cabin for the Holidays?Why is the last decision of every year the hardest? Yep, it's the age old question: where to ring in the New Year! You don't want the same old, same old. You are a wee bit past the days of "partying like 1999", maybe you even have a family now and want to include them. You still want fun, but something different, too. Well, have I got "different" for you. How about partying with the sharks? Get your attention, did I?

Gatlinburg's Ripley's Aquarium of the Smokies, which is located close to all of Heartland Cabin rentals, will be hosting their 12th Annual "Dance with the Sharks" New Years' Eve Celebration, naturally, on Dec. 31, 2013. The 12th Annual – that should be a clue as to how much fun you are going to have – why else would they keep doing it? They have pricing for singles, adults, and children!

Ryan DeSear, general manager of Ripley's Aquarium, assures us the party is unique, fun, and great for the entire family. How could it not be? The doors close to the public at 9pm, and at 9:01pm you will be admitted for a fantastic evening of dancing to a live band, eating unlimited heavy hors d'oeuvres, and in general, partying throughout the aquarium! By the way, there will be staff present to make sure you or your children don’t end up as heavy hors d'oeuvres for the sharks!

Just before midnight, you will partake of the City of Gatlinburg's fireworks display and ball drop from Ripley's Plaza! Don't even ask – YES, there is a champagne toast to ring out the old year and ring in the new! To make sure you remember all the good times you had, a personal souvenir photo of your rockin' good time will be going back with you to your fabulous Heartland Cabin accommodations that you wisely chose to book!
