Miserable woman on the till to get tickets . About 20 minutes in total . Maybe half hour at a push . Some interesting things , some not so interesting . Not great for young kids.

If you are in to reading about weird and wonderful facts, then you will not be disappointed. There are many oddities in this place which make your mind boggle! I also found the price for entry was reasonable for a family of 4, especially when compared to other attractions in Blackpool.

Worth £6 I suppose. Some interesting things. Some not so believable. Takes around 20 mins to go through. Would not be of interest to anyone under teenage years. As most things are pretty boring. Don't expect too much from this attraction. But worth a visit if it keeps you out of the rain.

This little attraction was very intresting to me and my husband. It's a nice way to kill a hour or so if you just want to have a relaxing time indoors(or in our case to get out the rain). Only thing we found was that the gift shop was a bit of a letdown at the end of the attraction.

Good fun and interesting, later in the day it was much cheaper, £6 instead of £9 per adult. My only gripe about this place was maybe someone could go about with a duster, but that was all. Some interesting weird and wonderful things to see and some hands on bits and bobs too.

Visited Ripley, s believe it or not whilst on holiday in Blackpool. It's smaller then other ripleys attractions but well worth a visit if you like the weird and wonderful. Great price to get in, also discounts are available if you book on line with pleasure beach tickets. Full of unusual things from a shrunken head to unusual illusions. We... More

I bought tickets online on the blackpool pleasure beach website meaning I got the tickets for £4.50 each. There was some interesting stuff inside however it was a bit short and more bizarre things could be put in there. However, for the price you pay, it is good value and is good if you are trying to fill an hour... More

Can't believe how quick it took to go round. We took our time but felt it was too much money for what it's was. Really could do with an upgrade.

We went as a mix of adults, children and a teenager, I don't think any of us will be rushing to go back. It takes under an hour to do it all, and it's pretty much just models and video's, with the odd interactive bit. Kids weren't scared at all so don't worry about that. It would make far more... More
