Good for children

I found it kind of cool when I went, although the place seemed to be quite tacky and very predictable.

Myself and my partner paid £6 each to get in, which compared to how expensive most things are in Blackpool is not a bad price. It is very small but it is packed with facts around every corner, even going up the stairs! You could not spend a day here, maybe an hour and a half maximum but it has... More

I'm a huge Ripley's fan, and knew we just had to go here whilst we were in Blackpool, it is a very small place, you couldn't spend hours here, maybe an hour tops, but packed full of information and knowledge. Some may find it boring, but I absolutely loved it, will likely return again!

Get Discounts if you park your car in some of the car parks in the area. Great attraction in wet weather, we live in Blackpool and still visit at least once a year, kids love it. Lots of oddities to see and interesting facts too.

Have seen the Ripley's books and heard great things about the London one so went out of our way to go. Absolute waste of money and time. It is more accurately a history museum, with the facts written on boards around the place and not much to look at. To actually do anything or interact with anything while there, you... More

Overall very entertaining Definitely not Disney World but it isn't trying to be. Great artefacts, highly unusual stories and just good old fashioned fun. Staff were cheery and helpful. Certainly brightened up a couple of wet afternoon hours in Blackpool! Give it a go.
