It was nice to sit in the smaller theatre. Have been there several times over the last few years when in town visiting family, it's always been clean, the crew friendly and the top films available.

It's purely a tourist attraction. We went in for something to do to kill some time while waiting for another adventure to start... it was funny, silly, and not particularly worth the cost of admission, but at the same time, sometimes you have to do the silly expensive tourist traps. It was fun for what it was. There were some... More

Ha ha ha, You are greeted by the "one and only" Big Foot which made a great picture. We liked the out of space area, the shrunked head video. A fun place to go to spend a couple of minutes.

I hadn't been to a Ripley's before so I don't really have a point of comparison. Overall though I was pretty underwhelmed by this. It seemed like there was not very many actual exhibits and a lot of filler. Maybe if you really need something to do but there are a lot of other things in this area.

A very interesting attraction! Many things that are on display or video... A rather fun place to go through. I would suggest your children be a little older to go through this attraction though.

I feel like this is a little bit much for what you get. It's a really short walk through there and we spent 24 a piece for tickets...little steep.

The figures were so life like. They looked like they could almost talk to you. The assortment of figures was amazing.

This is a fun and interesting place and takes some time to go through and read each display. Don't imagine little kids will appreciate all the history and artifacts but older kids and adults will. Yes, it ends in a gift shop but so does most other exhibits we've been to all over the world. Also, in the gift shop... More
