Sincerely speaking, I didn't have big expectations but at the end I had a good time! I have two teenager daughters and they really enjoyed it. Worth to make a visit if you are in Surfers Paradise.

We went there with the kids who really enjoyed it - they were in age range from 4 through to 14 years old. We spent around 3 hours there on a rainy day. Worth the visit.

We've been to the Ripley's before it was refurbished. The new Ripley's is so much better and so much more to see. The children were afraid at first because of the tribal articles on display but they soon relaxed as we went through the rooms of different display. There is a laser beam game that is particularly popular with children.... More

Looked to be a general knowledge store. I found it very boring until i reached the laser game room. If you dont have anything else to do, then you can give it a quick look.

We paid $58 for a family of 3.then that afternoon went to time zone where there is a wall of discount vouchers advertising adults at student prices which would've been about $25 cheaper and would've been a lot better value for money. My 7 year old was more interested in scanning the exhibits onto his ripleys iPad ap than reading... More

This place was great for the whole family. Our 5 year old son was scared at first but enjoyed all the interactive things that he could touch and play with and my husband enjoyed reading all the interesting facts, me on the otherhand enjoyed taking photos with all the displays

Both myself and my partner enjoyed Ripleys. It has been done up since I last went and I liked most things that had been done. Worth going if for nothing else just to see the sheer enormity of Robert Wadlow.

Went there with my 17year old daughter. We weren't expecting much, as we had bought cheap tickets from scoopon. The place was big with lots of things to look at. Which was great as it had easy to read and understand explanations for all their displays. My daughter loved the interactive things there. We had quite a bit of fun... More

You have to visit this great place of entertainment and information at least once and share in the delightfully weird and wonderful stuff on display, including fake mirrors, a lots of memorabilia and information to shock, horrify and entertain. The kids will love it and so will the adults.
