Average for middle aged people but a great place for kiddys to be taken. Some interesting things on offer but nothing that you couldnt just search up on the net. Rather expensive also.

Me and my fiance went to Ripleys Believe it of Not when we went on holiday!! I was so excited to go from watching the tv show for years whereas my partner was unconvinced.. By the end however we were both in awe of all the stuff there I'll definitely recommend this to anyone visiting the Gold Coast!!
