They really have some neat exhibits and my son loved the crazy tunnel and dance party room. The creepy exhibits might be much for some of the more sensitive kids, but plenty to see for both kids and adults regardless. Buy this as part of package to save $$

Everyone liked it but seemed very small. Like we were in and out just like that. Lots of things to look at, very interesting and entertaining. The collector penny machine was out of order......very disappointing. We got one everywhere we went but here. Still kinda sad about it. All in all it was an ok experience.

I've heard great things about them and was really hoping to visit... Be sure to call before you make your trip to MB, because they were only open over the weekend. We were hoping to go during the week but were very disappointed.

It wasn't too bad they had a few interactive things for the children. We would have went to the aquarium but gps took us this this ripleys instead. Probably won't go back but it was ok.

Thought we would try something different when we lasted visited Myrtle Beach. This was not a good choice. The admission cost is very expensive. Not worth the display. It was very hot and very crowded. I didn't even stick around to see all of the displays because of the amount of people in the rooms. I would not recommend this... More

Thank you for visiting Ripley's Believe It or Not Odditorium. We take your comments seriously and are always looking for ways to improve our guest experience. I notice you attended the Odditorium in July, which is one of the busiest months in Myrtle Beach for all area attractions. Our admissions prices are very competitive among Myrtle Beach attractions, either in... More

There were some cool things to look at, but they charge way too much which is to be expected in a tourist location. There were only 1 or 2 sections I found interesting. Prepare to do a lot of reading if you want to understand what you are looking at.

Even though most of the displays have to be taken with a grain of salt, we enjoyed going through this museum. Some of the displays are old, dusty, and have seen better days but still fun to look at everything. I don't want to give anything away so I'll just say they can be sneaky in there.

Having visited other Ripley's Believe It or Not locations, this one by far is the worse. It is lacking in the density of interesting subjects and topics found at other locations. It is also much smaller in size, but the ticket price is about the same. Not a total bust, but if dollars are few in number, I suggest spending... More
