Some really creepy things here!

It was a fun thing to do on a hot day. Lots of interesting things, it would be boring for kids, though.

I love everything that Ripley's has inside. There's no shortage of things to look at and/or learn about. My biggest complaint is the price. If I were to do it over again, I wouldn't have paid as much.

The kids loved it; the adults not so much. A bit too dumb but the kids 10 and under were thrilled. Wouldn't go there again, but it was worth 1 trip with the kids.

According to my teenager this was NOT worth the money. Stupid and boring according to the teen. The most interesting things (if you can call them interesting) were in the lobby. The rest of it was not worth the money or the time to walk through it.

Based on the admission fee there was not as much to see as we would have liked. Most of it was the same and quite morbid. Guess we should have done more research before going.

There are plenty of displays with attached information. Take your time to read at each display. Entertaining and informative. There are also a few "secret passages" and other interactive opportunities. Don't be afraid to explore and push some buttons. Fun.

We were wandering around the Dells downtown on a rainy afternoon and came across this place, paid the admission (which was not cheap) and wandered around the halls of Ripley's... it's dated and kinda hoaky but we had fun looking through and reading all the oddities and factoids. Was ok for a first time visit and I would try and... More

It was a bit pricey for mediocre exhibits...but it was something to do to passed the time...it's something to check out while working Broadway and on to the next attraction.

We had been to Ripley's in another city and enjoyed that one. This one starts with a coffin and does not improve. It's all darkly lit and the main theme is death. Don't waste your money.
