As is with most Ripley's attractions, this one is very interesting to say the least. There are tons of things to look at, and you never get bored. Each Ripley's Odditorium is different than the rest, and there are always amazing things to see. This one is definitely worth it!

Interesting.... was not THAT overly excited when we came out. First 10 minutes was an interesting "look-at-everything" but thereafter we just walked and stopped here and there. Perhaps some other people would find this more exciting? Sorry!

This attraction was decent and interesting for what it was. I always wanted to go to one and I felt I got my monies worth. It takes about an hour, and all in my party enjoyed it. Tip - purchase tickets online to save about $4 per person. We bought tickets online in the parking lot and the bar codes... More

The exhibits were pretty much as I expected - I'd seen the books. There were lots of wonderful and wacky facts. And despite knowing a lot of the stuff anyway, there was still lots to be interested in. We wondered at the amazing people featured; gasped at the horrors of the torture chamber; checked out the shrunken heads and amazing... More

Real objects and stories, not just pictures, from Ripley's world travels. Weird, sometimes a little disturbing, but fascinating. Would have enjoyed more interactive exhibits, but it had plenty of pleasant surprises. Suitable for all ages.

Went 15 years ago and again two years ago, nothing changed. For the amount it costs it's at best a 45min attraction.

I ordered tickets online and found it convenient and cheaper (discounted price for ordering online). The place is interesting and fun. Don't go into the tunnel if you're through least bit claustrophobic. Once you've been there once, you probably don't need to go back unless of course you'd like to.

Due to the wether we dropped by. It cost about $75 dollars for 4 of us, using a discount coupon. It was quite interesting and fun. The funniest bit was the one way mirror watching people pull funny faces and realising we done exactly that earlier! The kids enjoyed it and found the exhibits interesting. I guess is a little...

We spent a few hours at ripleys. My daughter loved the books and couldnt wait to go. It had plenty of interesting exhibits and fun and quirky things to do. Wasnt too crowded when we visited. Make sure to bring your camera...some fun photo opportunities for all the family.
