Mostly everything at this attraction could of been read in a book. Walking around you will find placards of facts and the odd model or photo relevant to what fact you are reading about. However, the effort was made by the creator and the lovely staff hence the 4 star rating. It's like a museum, not much for the younger... More

It cost £20 for our family of 4. There are several interesting things there but most of the vending mystic rides didn't work. My kids are 9 & 11 and they both found things they liked.

A fun diversion for the money. Plenty to make you laugh, wince and frown for an hour. We enjoyed it.

It's not bad, quite interesting and lots of facts. Would have been better if the actual exhibits and not just copies it passed an interesting 1/2 hour

We needed to kill a couple of hours so went in here for a bit. It was fun and genuinely interesting. I thought it was a little expensive for what it was. It is great for kids of all ages and adults.

went for a visit with high hopes, but it was found to be a bit lacking and small. best bit was at the end wanking through a fixed walkway but the tunnel was turning, that was a odd feeling. took about 45mins to go round.

We'd never visited a Ripley's before and so had high hopes about what was in store for us. We bought our tickets at the tourist office and got £3.00 off per adult so this is worth doing. The start was good - lots of interesting exhibits and a fascinating video about various unusual people around the world. Then further in... More
