There is actually soo much to see and do. It has got to be the best place to go in surfers! Soo much information to learn, and soo many freaky things! It was my second time there and still does not disappoint!

Easy location to get to and acquire close parking. Always something new to see at Ripley's. Very kid friendly / orientated. Value for money.
