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.

I took my husband here because he likes seeing odd things from around the world. There were some neat things to see in here and we even learned a little bit while on vacation. However, I was expecting something more from this. I guess I was expecting to see some super strange things. I bet that children get more out... More

I thought this was a boring Ripley's. There were a lot of exhibits related to artwork. I didn't think it was as good as some of the other ones I've been to. My advice is that unless it's a rainy day, skip this place.

My kids and I have gone to several Ripley's locations throughout the years. They're 19 and 21 now, hardly kids anymore, but it's still a place where I can forget they're grown and we can laugh over oddities like we used to. We were here for at least 90 minutes, browsing and taking our time reading the descriptions. The laser... More

Pretty fun time at this place, but the best part is the double mirror. Watch out don't get caught doing something you will regret. Hee-Hee

A must do for people of all ages-interactive and educational! Ripley's is a fun place on the boardwalk to check out and reasonably priced too.

I have been to a Ripleys in San Antonio, and Florida and this washy far the best. It wasn't overcrowded and the attractions were entertaining.

For what appeared to be a tiny building from the outside is very misleading. There were many exhibits. The visit took easily 75 minutes to view and all people left learning something. We have often seen these in different area and passed on them. This worthwhile distraction served as a great way to wait for meals at a neighboring restaurant.
