This is still okay to kill an hour or so if you are stuck for something to do, but bear in mind it hasn't changed in 20 years, and some of the displays are now starting to look a bit worn and tired. I would also strongly advise not to buy tickets for this if you also plan on visiting... More

An interesting way to spend an hour or so in Blackpool and have a giggle with friends. At £5 each (student id) it was a fairly inexpensive way to pass the time whilst waiting for the weather to improve!

Have been to Ripley's before in San Francisco and the kids love the books. Some interesting exhibits here - but only really takes about an hour to go around. Great for a wet and windy day!

Value for money if you take your time to read everything. We spent about 90mins going round, but if you didnt bother to read anything you could get round in 20 mins

We visited on 27th March, was very quiet which was great as there was no queue's! Admission was only £6 per adult which was great value for money as me and my partner throughly enjoyed this attraction! It has some amazing fun facts and things you literally can't believe! Well worth a visit!
