Whilst overpriced for the size of the attraction, there are some extremely interesting displays, interactive attractions, facts and figures. Took just over an hour to get round, and that was transitting relatively slowly and taking in many of the facts, displays. My teenage nephew and niece learned a lot, which added an extra star to the overall rating. Would have... More

This place is great. Me and my partner visited whilst staying in Blackpool for the weekend. We both thought it was really interesting some of the things you see in there are mind blowing. It is filled with great information and facts. Would have give it 5 stars but just think it is over priced

interesting but really not worth the money. We tried very hard to kill time & get our money's worth by looking at everything & reading all the info- it didn't help that the small cinema (?) info exhibit wasn't working. Sorry to say we came away totally underwhelmed. .

We read the reviews and even though we saw some bad ones we decided to give it a go anyway! What a mistake! I found some of the stuff very interesting but we were done within half an hour...a bit of a rip off for the admission price. Would understand if we rushed around but we took our time reading...

Visited Ripley's, like others, just to get out of the wind and rain. £9.00 each to get it, absolutely extortionate, didn't know you could get £3.00 off vouchers if you visited website first, mind you, had i visited website first, i wouldn't have gone in at all. Very drab and uninteresting. Most of the "exhibits" were pictures on the wall.... More

We popped in here after visiting the waterpark, we had our daughter of 8yrs with us who wasn't overly impressed with the attraction, I've got the book and the place didn't live anywhere near up to that overall i think they charge too much for not a lot really!

Okay...it was just okay. Not very interesting, some good exhibits & facts but overall a bit drab & old fashioned. The acid test...well...? Even the kids were bored. Overall, not really worth the money, in fact - the everything you need to know is in the £2 souvenir brochure you can buy at the door. ...won't be going back. Disappointing... More

Visited in December 2012 and loved every minute. So interesting and such a laugh! Great for young and old. Lots of interactive exhibits and very quirky stuff! Needs a bit of updating as a bit old but thoroughly enjoyed it!
