I've been to the Dells many times but haven't ever stopped here. We were very pleasantly surprised. There were many different displays and secret hidden rooms and artifacts. Don't miss 'the Dark Side of Ripley" behind the fire place. It was reasonably priced, and it had an awesome gift shop at the end.

I love this place! So fun...they have wonderful tributes to Robert Wadlow, the world's tallest man. They have a gate that I never figured out how to open, but then they showed me. I highly recommend taking the kids here, it makes education fun!

My husband, 11 year old & I thoroughly enjoyed Ripley's! I hadn't been here since I was about 13 & it was just as much fun as an adult, if not more. We spent a good hour walking around and only realize now that we missed some things. We will surely be back when we visit the Dells again in... More

Much like any other Ripley's place. Is informative and interesting. Most displays have been on the Ripley's Believe it or Not TV show. Small gift shop. Some of the display areas were too dark to even read the accompanying information. Could use some more lighting.

For what the ticket cost to enter this attraction it was not worth it at all. The place was very old, dusty and dirty. Half of the lights were out on the attractions so you couldn't see the item nor read the placard. Don't bother with this.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our attraction. In a place where the public is allowed to roam freely many things will get broken and dirty. We are continually maintaining and doing our best to keep things show worthy. Thanks for your response as we always love to hear what guests have to say (good and bad) More

This was a "ok" stop but nothing to write home about. Price is too high for experience. A few cool things. Make sure to watch for the "extra" ways to see things. Fireplace bad prisoner cage.

My kids really enjoyed this. They are 12 and 8. Although they kind of breezed through it--I tried to get them to slow down and read some of the exhibits, they really had fun! We got the package deal with the Wizard's Quest, so I thought that was a pretty good deal.

Our family of four (two teenagers included) enjoyed Ripley's. We went late at night and almost had the place to ourselves! It's kind've creapy and a bit "dusty and old" like many of the reviews indicated, but it was still great fun for the evening. I'd recommend it to others as a good attraction to see in the Dells.

We enjoyed going through the exhibit, but was a little disappointed at the size - thought it would have been larger. You can see and read everything in an hour or so. The stuff this Ripley's has is pretty cool and different from others around the country.

I thought it was interesting, but it is not for those with short attention spans and difficulty perusing and reading. There was a great deal to learn, but my boyfriend was bored and tried to zoom me through it quicker than I'd have liked. I have to admit, they start out with some interesting stuff, and they end with some... More
