Watch for discounts and its well worth the time and money. Takes about 1 hour or so to enjoy, read the stories. Decide if its real or not...

I walked out with my family and felt like I wanted to stand outside and tell everyone not to go inside save your money. It should be called ripoff believe it or not! Seriously, it was so boring. If it were free it would have been a waste of time. Save your money.

My wife used to stop at every ripleys on road trips and i got dragged in here for the first time. Something fun to do on the boardwalk. Inside are factual and ridiculous things. We got a good laugh and saw some interesting crafts and projects.

My husband and I stopped here when the rain on the boardwalk became too much to deal with. We thought the $18 price tag was a little steep but again, looking to have some fun and get out of the rain, we ponied up. We had so much fun! The gypsy cart was amazing and we loved the "art room."... More

I am okay with it but we cannot go to Atlantic City without going to Ripley's. It has some really cool exhibits but it doesn't change enough for me to go too often, I get bored easily. But the kids love it! Every time we take someone to AC they have to go to Ripley's. Just be sure to look... More

This is a self guided tour that lasts apx. 45 minutes. It was cool place for the kids to visit. It is pricey, so grab a coupon if possible. The kids liked the creepy displays and optical illusions. The Vortex is done very well and even Dad liked that part. A few nightmares from the youngest due a coffin/ body... More

We took our two boys aged 9 and 14. It was fun. Even for the parents! Clean, air-conditioned, and entertaining. Don't set your expectations too high, but it was a nice diversion for a few hours.

My family loves to go to Ripley's whenever we find one. We love to see all the weird items. My favorite was the movie about the Lizard Man who pus a corkscrew up his nose.

Always wanted to go so this time I took my grandson in. It was awesome. We went through and had some fun trying to figure out some riddles. They had trick pictures. They also had some fun surprises along the way.
