Been to many Rip,yes and this one is the worst of the bunch. I guess because the cost is so high to get in, you expect more than 15 minutes of walking through the place and something interesting to look at. Not impressed

My daughter purchased the tickets so I have no idea what the cost was. I have been to these before in other cities so I was not as excited as my family was. I asked... More

Our 8 year old had a great time here, but I wish we'd have skipped the last half floor with him... Interesting displays of weird and quirky items sure to catch your interest. Our son enjoyed looking for the secret passageways and rooms.

My family ages 13-59 visited and loved it. Lots of very cool exhibits and things to see. Four secret passages to find and many photo opportunities. We loved it.

This was an experience to treasure. A combination of items you would never see all in one place. Our entire family enjoyed Ripley's.

This was expensive for what they had. Didn't seem worth the money. It was very small and not a lot of exhibits. I would say don't waste your time or money.

Thank you for visiting our odditorium. I am sorry that you didn't feel that this was worth your time. We do have 3 floors with over 11 galleries. I hope you were able to find the secret passageways and take advantage of the fun symbol hunt in the temple of discovery. Again we apologize that you were not completely satisfied. More

This is a very small and poorly kept attraction. It has a few things that were fun to look at but overall I would not recommend it

It was very interesting, and my kids loved it! They have already read the book so it was cool how they could see things from the book in real life!

I've been to a few Ripley's and found them fun. This is just a plain boring. Save your $ and do something else

Thanks for visiting Ripley's in Wisconsin Dells. We apologize that it did not live up to your expectations. It would be helpful to hear exactly what you felt was "lame." We are always looking for ways to improve our exhibits. Hopefully you had a chance to discover the hidden passage ways and did the symbol hunt at the end. More
