Even after seeing odd and interesting things every day online, this place is still worth the visit. Go here to really experience many cool things.

We walked along to Ripley's one evening and were pleasantly surprised at how many interesting things there were to look at here. You must try the tongue exercises when you first enter!

Interesting, fun, but so busy that it was next to impossible to read each item and enjoy each exhibit.... back to back people but we enjoyed regardless.

I've been to other Ripley's in Atlantic City and NY. If you've been to one seen them all. It's basically all the same. The only reason I went was because I had the Go Orlando Card. I wanted to use it as much as possible, to get the most for my money. It was just ok for me.

If comparing this with wonderworks I would pick wonderworks every time. We spent around 90 minutes here. The exhibits were ok but tired

Thanks for coming to visit us! It is hard to compare us to Wonder Works. While we both have interactive elements in our show, they are more science focused. We are based on rare, interesting and unusual artifacts, animal and human oddities and one-of-a-kind elements. We try to keep our show fresh by bringing in new pieces. We do value... More

The heads up is that Ripley's is a filler if you have a free hour or so, and you've absolutely exhausted the theme parks and other attractions. You'll find youself blitzing through it and wondering whether the $90 for a family of four could have been spent better else where.

Thanks for your review! While we are not an all day attraction like the theme parks, it does take about 90 minutes to experience our museum. With 600 exhibits, we try to maintain a variety that appeals to all. We appreciate your visit and hope you had an enjoyable experience. More

I went to a Ripley's as a kid and remember it being much more interesting. A lot of what we saw was pictures with a plaque explaining what we were seeing, or a fake thing trying to show what the real (person, animal, etc) looked like. Some of it was interesting but I probably wouldn't spend the $$ to go... More

Very neat place. Thought it was great. Only thing is the tour could have been better if it was guided instead of wondering by yourself.
