I am sorry that you did not enjoy your experience in the Ripley's attraction. We have walked through the show and verified that the odors you may have smelled are not there anymore.

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
