Some cool stuff, facts and figures but the exhibits are not modern or up to date. Feels like it was last updated in the 90's.

Not a bad way to spend an hour. The place could use a makeover and they need to have the restroom marked better but all in all our family enjoyed it.

This was not at all what we expected..however it wasn't crowded. There is a reason for that. All of the exhibits are old, and it's very dimly lit. Some of the things were duplicated from the Believe it or not attraction. Wasn't worth the money in my opinion.

Don't waste your money or time!!! I didn't look at the reviews on this one because everything else we had been to of ripleys was awesome- this attraction is in very desperate need of a renovation. It's old, outdated, dark and dingy. It isn't entertaining at all. Ripleys believe it or not is ten times better

Price is outrageous for things you can google and watch on truTV. Save your money and go to the pool or watch paint dry instead.

We enjoyed this over the Odditorium. We bought the pick three with the Aquarium. It is good for a one time but we wouldn't go back. Kids got bored with it.

Dont waste your money on this place. My 12 year old was highly disappointed. The only attraction she even enjoyed that was Ripleys was the aquarium. Wish I had not spent the money or time messing with this place. It was a joke!

none of the exhibits seemed to be the real record breaker artifact. there was some interaction that the kids liked. there are probably many more facts in the book than on display.
