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

This is our third different Ripley's this year and they are all pretty similar with a few wrinkles. The place appeals to its audience, 9-year-old boys, and has a few fun things for dad too.
