I went in here years ago but couldn't remember much about it. So went with my partner and daughter. For the price it's not a bad place, lots of interesting facts and fun interactions. It's not a big place, but for the money, it's worth checking out sometime.

Decided to visit Ripleys. Quite enjoyable but wouldn't visit again, one of those places once you have been there is no need to go again. Found it tired and dated.

I went there with my mum and 5 year old son. My son wanted to go in looking at all the stuff outside. As he started to walk through the entrance without even walking in the first room my son got scared and did not want to go in. We did not even go into the first room. I explained... More

Loved visiting Ripleys, such a lot of information to take in. My son & I took our cousin who was on a weekend visit to Blackpool. We all had a great time!

As the title to my review says if it's raining in Blackpool you could spend a couple of hours here. Some of the displays are quite fascinating. The best ' bit ' for me was the bridge you walk across before leaving. I really felt as though the bridge was swaying but in fact the walls were moving!!! Weird sensation!!... More

Average tourist attraction, fair number of odd things in displays but nothing I'd not seen before, may appeal to kids more

However glad we went as I wanted to experience it after having a few annuals over the years. I thought it was ok value and the book you can purchase at the beginning for £2 is worth it! I wanted to see more but I expect this is one of the smaller exhibitions across the world. Interesting read about the... More

My honest opinion is that ever adult would find at least a dozen things in this place interesting no matter what you are into however it's not really any good for children and my 8 yr old and 2 yr got bored quickly. So I would say this place is best for adults only. The entrance fee is very good... More

As a family we had read the reviews for this and were quite excited to get the opportunity to visit, especially my son who has read the books. However, the place was very dated and the things that you had to read were not always clear or located well. After 10 minutes my children were bored and itching to leave... More
