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.

My 15 year old son insisted on checking this place out while we waited for a table at the Local Ocean Seafood restaurant down the street (which was excellent), but Ripley's was a complete waste of money.

We took 2 ten year olds and their favorite part was the dance room (silhouette) and American Idol room at Wax Museum. Good to buy pass to all three attractions (Ripley's, Wax Museum and Under sea Gardens) for 24.99 adults and about 14.50 kids). Fun place to go with kids, especially if they are into Ripley's. Take your time at... More

We had a 5 and 10 yr old scared with screaming kids behind us. Probably better for older kids? It was something to do if the weather was bad.

My wife, son (8) and I toured Ripley's Believe It or Not while we were waiting for our dinner reservation. It was full of neat things to see, read and watch. We enjoyed ourselves and it was an entertaining tour through the exhibits.

Not so fun for younger children. It is dark things pop out and really a bit scary for younger kids there is a lot of cool and amazing things to read, and learn about. But for younger child we heard a lot of screaming and crying while walking though.
