“Pricey, Tourist Trap for Kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

After breakfast, the family decided to walk the town. Of course, we pass by Ripley's and the kids have to go in. I found nothing special about this Ripley's over others. Admission was pricey, attractions and exhibits were nothing out of the ordinary.

“Ok for ( young) kids”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

A warehouse of oddities, sadly a large portion of the 'amazing' curios are just animals with genetic mutations. Our kids were kept occupied for about an hour, but even they didn't give it rave reviews. For anyone over about 12 I'd doubt it would hold their atention

“Crazy Awesome 'Odditorium'”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

Right when you walked in there was a blinged-out horse, a two-headed calf, and a wax head with bulgy eyes. When you pay the admission, you step into a 'cave' that's full of exhibits. So you keep walking along, and there's some really cool stuff! (Lincoln-Kennedy Coincedence was, as the baby in the state farm commercial says, freak-y!) There 's one roller-coaster like thing, but you don't actually move in it. It's like a... a... room or something that goes around and around around you, and it makes you feel dizzy and a little bit sick. If you close your eyes until the end, it's like nothing. Then there's the upside-down room, and there's nothing you can really do in it unless you read standing on your head. The vampire exhibit was cool, and I liked the hanging cage. Have fun! It's expensive, but well worth the money.

“Good for kids”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013

We took the kids here so they could do something "just for them." It was pretty neat, and the kids enjoyed it, so that was the most important thing.
