For the prices I paid its terrible there's hardly anything to see the only things the kids likes was the moving tunnel , tarrant cards and palm readings the rest was boring and disappointing barley took us half hour.

Not worth the full price, the exhibits aren't any better than reading the Ripleys books my son has and even with reading every exhibit in detail, barely takes 45 minutes. Dissapointing

If you want a taste of the slightly bizarre with a touch of seaside chic then put an hour aside and visit Ripley's believe it or not. Situated by the pleasure beach we had booked our tickets online (50% off the ticket price) and tickets picked up at the casino this place does not have buggy access so our daughter... More

Some interesting things the rest is junk and too many things that need money use! Needs brought up to date and more of a wow factor!! Unless your getting a mega deal to get in don't bother!

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
