I had never been to a Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum or a wax museum, so I had no previous experiences to compare with this visit, but I thought this attraction was excellent! The Ripley's Museum is divided into sections, each a different category, such as human oddities (you can compare your height to the tallest man in the... More

This place was awful! Out of date wax figures, boring Believe it exhibit, and the cost was way too much! Loads of ethic people in your way clogging up exhibits so you can't past by easily! Too bad I can't rate it a zero or Me & the family would!

This four in one attraction was more than we expected. I can't believe we have lived in the area all our lives and never visited. I loved the hands on approach and the fact that it was fun for children and adults.

My 17 and 19 year old and I laughed and smiled throughout our 2 hour visit. That being said, the ticket price of $29.95 per person was steep! AAA gave us $2 off per person. The mirror maze was surprisingly fun, the wax museum was quite long and enjoyable. In this age of internet and television, the oddities museum was... More

Cost $60 plus for 2 adults. We did the 3 displays combo. We skipped the Lazer tag. The wax museum figures were ok. A few of them looked good but most of them looked like they were coming off of a 2 week drinking binge. The hall of mirrors will probably be okay for younger kids. It took us about... More

For 4 people the cost was $99 and although it was nice, it was nothing really special. I was more disappointed with the Palace of Wax than the Ripley Believe it or Not. A few of the wax celebrities looked okay but the majority of them were not quite right and some of them look foolish, especially Jay Leno. The... More

Thank you so much for your review. I apologize that you found some of our wax museum figures to be a bit off compared to the real character. Our wax artist spends months trying to get the figures as real and life like as possible in order to create a fun and exciting environment for our guest. We will take... More

Wish there were less posters and articles to read and more actual objects and items to see and not have to read. We did enjoy the Ripley's Odditorium and the Mirror Maze - the maze was more difficult than any others we've done - had to follow a little girl to get out after about 20 minutes of wandering. This...

We went to this several years ago (I think we've been there twice) and we noticed the Ripley's part seemed about half the size it was before. We remember specific exhibits that are there no longer and don't seem to have been replaced. That was a bummer. I know they've added a hall of mirrors since last time so I... More

Wax museum was great! The girls loved the scary walk through! We also toured the side with Ripleys. A lot of fascinating photos and facts. Had to slow my girls down to read and look. Making a Wax hand was so fun! Great time had by all!
