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

This was my first time ever coming to one and I read many reviews before going. I had a family of 4, with my two boys ages 3 and 4. What was cool was they are free under 5. The museum part was pretty cool, I tried to keep an open mind for all ages. I think we did it... More

I loved going here and seeing all of the awesome things. It was close to the hotels and the beach. If it's raining this is a great experience.

Visited summer 2009- We came here on our last full day in Panama City because my husband was badly sunburnt and refused to go to the beach. There was a lot to see, and it was worth the money to get in. It was nice and air conditioned and very interesting!

We visited this attraction as part of a package we had purchased elsewhere. I had visited Ripley's in St Augustine so I had an idea what would be there. This location felt small by comparison. Many of the exhibits were old and the displays were faded or hard to read. I was disappointed. There were a few jewels but not... More
