The North Carolina Aquarium at Pine Knoll Shores turned off its 30-foot waterfall for cleaning and its staff was able to collect coins thrown in by the tourists.

The “Smoky Mountain” waterfall served as a wishing well for visitors for over 14 years

They posted the images on facebook with the caption “Our staff turned off the 30-foot tall Smoky Mountain waterfall and collected all the coins! About 100 gallons of coins were cleaned and sorted and will go toward the general care of the aquarium and animals during this time. Can you guess how much money was in the waterfall? Put your guesses in the comments and we’ll post the answer next week! Thanks Liz Baird for the photos”

The also posted an update regarding the coins found in the aquarium and said, “ Coin update! We’ve had such an amazing response to our coin post! Thank you to everyone who commented and submitted a guess! It’s taking longer than anticipated to sort, clean and count coins. Staff is still sifting through the almost 14 years worth of coins from the waterfall. We’ve sent a portion of them to the automated coin counter at a local bank. It took about four hours to get through nine crates of coins! So stay tuned! We’ll post the total amount next week.”

While it is closed to visitors, the aquarium has been offering virtual events, behind-the-scenes tours and animal encounters.
