Found the prices to be a little high for what you get to see and do. The wax museum was okay just not as big and elaborate as I would have expected. My grandson enjoyed it and that is all that really matters. I probably would not pay the price to come back. I think it is one of those... More

Thank you so much for your recent review of our attractions. We always try to be aware of pricing for our families but this is sometimes difficult to make everyone happy with 4 attractions under one roof. We appreciate your feedback and are glad that you and your family enjoyed your time. More

My family went through the haunted house. The tickets were reasonable priced we did not have to wait to get in. The attraction was pretty good better than I expected the wax figures made it unique.

We loved the house of mirrors, although if you have panic issues you might feel a little claustrophobic. Ripleys was not on par with those found in major markets like San Francisco but it was still fun and entertaining. My kids liked the wax museum and the room of presidents was very cool. The only problem was the quality of... More

Visited over the Labor Day weekend. It's quite pricey, but fun, and a good alternative for a hot or rainy day. You have the option to pick 2, 3, or 4 attractions. We chose all four. If we were to ever go back, we'd only do the Ripley's and the wax museum. The mirror maze and laser maze were, to... More

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 Out of date wax figures, boring Believe it exhibit, and the cost was way too much!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.
