We had a good time as not only was it educational but the Laserace which is located within one of the floors filled my children with lots of thrills as they tried from "Easy" to the "Expert" levels. They even have alternative doors if you want to skip the spinning tunnel which I did.

Ripley's Museums are always lots of fun and there's always something you didn't know about. They have some interactive displays, videos and wonderfully intriguing exhibitions.

Ripley's Believe It or Not is conveniently located right near Surfers Paradise beach. It's quite interesting and fun but not worth the fairly high entrance fee.

Interesting but a little expensive at full price. Try and find a discount voucher from the numerous tourists guides and maps available free at the airport and other places around the Gold Coast. The laser room was fun but there was a bit of a queue.

Too expensive as kids didn't really enjoy. They just wanted to get out. If they were a little older they might appreciate it (?) I won't be returning any time soon.

This 'educational' trip was a bit freaky for my daughter (8) at some parts. But it was different and amusing. Recommend it to people who like history and culture.

I used to watch Ripley's Believe it or Not on TV when I was a kid, so it was a blast to take my two kids there to see all of the weird and wonderful things. They really enjoyed it!

This is actually a museum showing several different things and facts from history. The best was the statue of tallest man, Laser Ray play station etc.

Had been to Ripley's many years ago and decided to revisit while back in Surfers, with some things still similar (but still very interesting!) and many new and exciting things for the whole family to see and enjoy! It was a great outing the whole family had enjoyed, its a great place to find out quirky facts!
