Hadn't been to Ripley's believe it or not for many years unfortunately nothing much had changed probably more condensed than before. Still the same old stuff mainly tribal artifacts a lot of the stuff in the souvenir brochure wasn't there. Probably best saving your money...More

The exhibits are tired looking but are quite interesting. A few references to PT Barnum which the youngest was excited about. Most of the facts on the 12 stairs we all knew. Took a picture of the most interesting exhibit.... Wouldn’t visit again.

Took our 9 year old grandson who loved this place esp the fattest man. He was looking forward to seeing the shoes from back to future but didn't see these ??All in all a good hour spent

My son adores the Ripley's books, and was so excited to visit this attraction. Unfortunately our expectations weren't met. The museum is small, and very old and tired looking. There are very few original artifacts, most are just models created for this exhibit. There's not...More

Ripley is an interesting museum. It has many entertaining exhibits. All 3 of us found it fun and worthwhile.

Well I'm sorry to say I was very disappointed with Ripleys believe it or not. It felt tame and lack luster. There is not a toilet on the premises and if you have mobility issues it's not accessible. It felt quite dated and needed more...More

No you can enter this place without having to go to Pleasure Beach - can't remember how much admission is though but if you look on their website, it will tell you.
