Some interesting stuff but not worth the money ---- My teenager was not impressed -- esp. since you had to stand and read about everything --- lol -- heaven forbid he would have to read something in the summer!

Kids like it, but for nearly $100 for a family of five, this doesn't really deliver compared to other options. We went through it in less than an hour.

It kept the kids entertained but, was very crowded in there. The attraction was good and would of been better if not overly crowded.

We bought an Aquarium Plus One ticket online and went to the "Believe It or Not" second. Though I think most of the items in the place have been there for years, they were interesting and the kids were able to get involved in some of the activities and displays. It does take a lot of reading so younger kids... More

There were some really good things but there were some pretty boring things. If you want to go I'd recommend buying tickets online a head of time it's cheaper. I wouldn't pay full price and I probably won't go back. It's one of those if you've seen it once then you've seen it. My kids did get kind of bored... More

The person selling the tickets at the front was very friendly and helpful. We loved the "odditorium" and the kids had a great time.

My family and I visited on a rainy July 3rd day. We bought the package for 2 attractions. While as an adult, its interesting to see these artifacts, my 7 year old was grossed out and a little bit scared. Showed mummified body parts, shruken heads, cannibals - it was a bit intense! There was a lot to read which... More

Very little for the value. Tickets were a bit pricey for the 5D theater and i expected the aquarium to be a lot bigger as well.

Too much money per person. Nothing much to see. The mirror maze was the biggest jip of them all. If you have kids, you are just wasting your time and money.
