We have a 15 and 4 year old in our family. They both had a blast and enjoyed the exhibits. There is a lot to look at, read and take pictures of. A lot of very cool pictures were taken while at Ripley's. If you love cool #sefies then this is the place for you and your kids. You will... More

We just came back from here and it was a good way to spend an hour. Go through the fireplace for more interesting sites. The bottom floor smelled strongly of paint. It did have a temple theme with cool effects in it. Located right next to Wizard Quest. Stop at popcorn place between the two building. Get a Passport for... More

We apologize for the paint smell. The building next door is under construction and were using a strong chemical that day. We are glad that you enjoyed your visit and hope that you will visit again! More

We took our grandchildren, age 16 and 8...while there was more reading than they are accustomed to, they loved it!

This was terrible. The first room was fine covered in Duct tape but soon as you turn the corner you step into a room of death and bones. Then travel to Egyptian times. If I wanted to see Egyptian I would have went to a museum. This was lame and a waste of money.

This was one of our must sees on our list. Glad we went! We purchased a book for $2.00 along with our admission, and the kids (8 and 10) took turns reading it all the way home. My daughter was a little scared through some of the darker parts, but all in all, it was fascinating for both my husband... More

I loved going to Ripley's in Orlando, it's a memory I looked back on for many years so when I got the chance to see the one in the Dells I was SUPER excited. Boo. Nothing too exotic that hasn't been seen before, most of the signs were in the dark so you couldn't read them. One sign was so... More

We stopped at Ripley's in the Dells on our way home from an overnight stay at a local waterpark. Wasn't sure what to expect and was fairly disappointed. Expensive, we paid $45 for 3 of us. The lady was very nice and told us we could take as many pictures as we wanted. However it was so dark through most... More

We visited on 1/2 during the business hours posted online, stating they were open everyday and believe it or not they were closed! The door sign even said open every day! This was the first attraction on our trip that weekend! VERY VERY DISAPPOINTING!!!!!

My husband and I wanted to go to am exhibit so we picked Ripley's.... BAD decision. It took us 45 minutes at most to walk thru it and both were not impressed. For $13...not worth it! Basically just random artifacts everywhere with brief descriptions to read. Kids around us seemed to enjoy it, but I would not recommend it for... More
