Despite the name, great family spot!

Very dependable food, good service. Although the Bar area is fairly large, so is the dining area. Outside playground available for children. On the bay with water views.

Been in a couple of these on other vacations and this one is great as they all are. Kids really enjoyed all the oddities and exhibits. Couple of them even scared my teenage daughters, and I love that!!

We visited Ripleys at night about 9 pm and it was still pretty busy. It cost about $15 per person to get in and you could bundle it with a mirror maze and /or a laser maze game. We did just the museum and the mirror maze. The museum was interesting and for the most part kept our teens occupied.... More

Unique, grossly interesting and jaw-dropping exhibits intermingled with factoids..my tweens loved it! Go slow through the tunnel walk with flashing lights.. Heck, turn around and try doing it again if you dare....

We went here for the first time & we really enjoyed it! So many cool things to look at in here! The price is really decent too! My 8 year old son was really interested in everything he saw. What a great place! We will visit again next time!

A great stop on the boardwalk, Ripley's is a lot of fun to walk through. A ton of exhibits, facts, and stories throughout the place. It's one of my favorite stops when on vacation.
