Another visit and was hoping that there were some new exhibits, but unfortunately everything was still the same from six months ago. But a one time visit is still sure to be interesting.

Best thing to see in the city. Casinos are just nothing. Must visit. We spend a lot of time in here. Everything deserves to be seen keenly and appreciated. We got a reasonable amount of ticket on groupon. $22 for 2 people with the book and one laser game and also free appetizer at one of the Casinos. Laser game... More

Took the kids to Atlantic City for the day during our Christmas brake. The last time I was at Ripley's was when I was a kid in Gatlinburg. I have to say It was ok, After doing the Museum I felt that the price was way high for what you got. Some things were very interesting, but most were not.... More

Over priced, tourist trap located right on the boardwalk. Very very pricey ticket to go inside a not very thought out inside. I have been to the Orlando Ripleys which was so much better. Shame.

After having passed by Ripley's several times on previous visits to Atlantic City, I finally put it on my to do list for this year's visit. And I am so glad that I did. It is a fun way to spend some time regardless of your age. I was there over an hour but you can easily linger even longer... More

I visited with my son, who had never been to a Ripley's Believe it Or Not! before. We had a great time. There are a few "gotchas" which gave us some good laughs. Loved the miniature rooms - wow. A good family activity.

If you need some uncomplicated fun, this is the place to visit. It's a bit weird, it's a bit funky, it's some fun facts, a bit of everything for a fun afternoon.

I'm an AC-area native and sometime's it's cool to just do touristy stuff and see how the other half lives. With the exception of the front desk person occasionally being a littttllleee too sales-oriented with add-ons and keychains, etc...this place is an awesome time and a great getaway from the casino hustle and bustle. Definitely recommended, though... If you're there... More
