I just visited this particular Ripley's with my grandson year before last so, when my son was in town and wanted to go, I just assumed it would be a rerun of the last visit. Not at all! Almost everything is new and now I can't wait to take my grandson again. There is so much to see and to... More

The Ripley's believe it or not museum contains an odditorium (where it shows the weird artifacts), a mirror maze, 7-D theater, and a laser race. The odditorium was a little boring for the kids at the end because it takes so long to finish all the exhibits. The 7-D theater was really fun. You get to choose which "movie" you... More

Thank you for visiting our attractions and I am sorry your kids were scared inside the mirror maze. We have a couple of Ripley's characters in the maze that are a bit freaky. They are representations of actual people who I have met personally. They were very nice and pleasant despite their interesting look and I promise that the characters... More

Four different activities. I was with and infant so I let my family do all four activities and I just did the oddities exhibits. My family seemed to enjoy it! They also offered a military discount.

It took you 1hour to explore the 16 rooms inside the Infinity Maze. If you are not dare for the spooky room in Ripley's Belive It Or Not, then you'd better try this. Mission is to find the exit from the mirror wall. Remember to put gloves and shoe sock on all the time. It prevents you from sharp edge... More

My husband and I wandered into Ripley's today and were really amazed at what a good time we had. The place is unique, that's for sure, but everything is very well presented. Dan was bewitched by the asian sculptures in jade and camel bone. I thought the Titanic presentation was really great. A great form of entertainment while you're on... More

So, I went to Ripley's this past weekend. Before I go on, let me state that I am 24 years old & I went with a friend of mine who's also an adult, and we had no children with us (I guess we were recapturing our youth lol). Anyways, I must say I was really impressed w/ the venue! We... More

Thank you for your response and I am happy that you enjoyed your experience. It is funny that you mentioned children freaking out in the mirror maze because children are usually the best at getting through the maze. It is usually the adults that get lost the most. Kids are also pretty good at the laser race because they are... More
