Think twice before visiting ocean city Maryland. The beaches are extremely dirty, the crabs are of poor quality, most of the hotels are run down filthy & nasty, and the police are always looking to ticket tourists to pull in revenue. I literally saw five cop cars back to back ticketing people. Also, the crime rate is high, especially vehicle... More

Had been here years ago, and was shocked to see the price increase to $14 a person for adults. A bit pricey even for the OC boardwalk.

We always have a nice visit here. The kids have been here every year, and still love to go. Ripley's Believe it or Not is a good place to take the kids and astound them year after year.

Anybody who's ever been to Ocean City knows about the shark through the wall. Most don't realize the fun attraction inside the building. There is a lot to see ( & A LOT to read) but it's worth the effort. Hard to keep the little ones interested (until you get to the mirrors) but everybody else will be entertained by... More

Loved the cool things to look at and observe. Probably not good for little ones who may lose interest. My teens enjoyed it immensely.

They need up to date information. Other than that, it was ok. Also we got the three all deal. Meaning we could go to ripleys, mirror maze and the laser game. We did but we could only do each thing once for 45.00. I think it should be at least twice

I've been to other Ripley's museum and this seemed a lot smaller than most. Pretty expensive but a nice change for a rainy day.

It's on a boardwalk that is full of other attractions. My 12 and 10 years old's were very disappointed in the displays. I would strongly suggest skipping this attraction while in Ocean City.
