We knew we wanted to go to Wizard Quest before we went to the Dells, and stumbled upon a Downtown Discovery Pass on their website which gave us admission to Wizard Quest, Ripley's and tokens at Bidder #4. We have always skipped Ripley's in other cities due to the high price and not knowing if the kids would enjoy it.... More

i would never spend my money to go back again....although my 11 yr old daughter thought it was a hoot! It's something to witness one time, I guess if there is nothing better to do. Not much to say, the pictures on the website are what u see. I started sneezing immediately from the dust....very dark, hard to walk with... More

I went with my husband & 13 year old son last week, the water park was a little too busy for us so we went into town and were VERY happy with this attraction!

It was about $60 for our family of 5 to visit the museum. We only spent about an hour there so even though it was interesting I felt it was too high priced. Knowing what I know now I wouldn't have gone unless the cost was half that.

Thank you for visiting our odditorioum. We are glad that you felt the exhibits were interesting. The best deal for admission is on our website. If you are planning on visiting Wizard Quest as well the most cost effective thing to do is to get a combo pass to both Ripley's and Wizard Quest. Thanks again for your review. More

It was fun the first time I went over 3 years ago. Attractions are the same. Not many things to see. Dark and almost dingy. Not fun for kids under 10 I think. I don't plan on going back.

Our two 14 year olds thought this was great my husband and I thought it was OK. It is bigger than it appears from the exterior so we did spend a good amount of time in there. We bought some sort of combo pass that got us admission to Wizard Quest as well.

We were driving through Wisconsin Dells and decided to stop for a bit and went here. It was $42 for the 3 of us. I thought it would be a little bit cheaper but maybe there are some coupons out there. It was fun to read about all the things our 11 year old liked it and that's what mattered.... More

Ripley's Believe It Or Not was really fun! Those other reviews are wrong.. You get to learn something new, and theres even real artifacts of Ripley's Believe it or not! Like shrunken heads.
