If you can the best thing to do is buy for all three attractions, Ripley's, The Wax Museum and the Undersea Garden. The undersea gardens are just okay but the other two are wonderful, Shows how it feels to be in an earthquake, history of the Japanese dropping balloon bombs and what happened to one group years later. Wax Museum... More

Not as cool as what I promised my teenage daughter. But we got a deal on groupon. Out of the three attractions at Mariners square, this was the most enjoyable

Typical Ripleys with same ole exhibits. Totally not worth the money if you've been to other Ripleys. Seems these days they all have pretty much the exact same exhibits for 80% of the place, not enough special exhibits (like bigfoot here) to make it worth the expensive price they charge. If you've never been to one it's worth going once,... More

We bought tickets through Groupon paid $16 for two adults $11 for my son and my daughter was free. With the Groupon we got all three attractions: the wax museum, under water sea garden, Ripley's believe it or not. We took our time and very much enjoyed it. We saying karaoke at Ripleyson the American Idol stage. My son loves... More

To be fair, we've been here before. It's worth it to buy a Groupon or a pass to all 3 Mariners Square Places. Take your time going through, and enjoy. You only get 1 time through. Read the signage on the walls- pretty interesting stuff.

I enjoyed thisunusal place to visit Although it might be a little intense for the youngest children I think the older ones will find this interesting... So words of caution for the little guys though I know a family whos 3 year old was pretty scared.

It really is kind of cheese but the kids loved it, look for discount. I would not pay full price. Gotta see it at least once

Wasn't sure what to expect but we had fun and saw some cool stuff. They have a large Bigfoot a.k.a. Sasquatch in the front area for photos. You can pay just to go through Ripley's or get the 3 ticket option for Ripley's, The Wax Works and Oregon Undersea Gardens. We just wanted to check out Ripley's Believe It or... More

I really love this kind of stuff and learning weird stuff out the world. It wasn't big but had a bunch of information and sites to see. Take your time when you are going through there is a lot to see in a small place.

I took my nieces and grand nephews and we all had a great time. They've barely changed anything in the 30 years since my last visit...and it shows. We had a Groupon so I was okay with the prices, I would have been disappointed if I paid full price.
