Well located to get children to be occupied while mum can have a shopping break. The kids can see something different and learn lots of facts, different cultures and some scientific stuff. Nice laser room challenge. Worth a visit. AUD80 for family ticket.

Thank you so much for your review! Being $79.90 for a family of 4 for a few hours of fun hopefully is a justifiable price! Glad you enjoyed your time at Ripley's and hope to see you in the future!

Yes, we have an elevator especially for wheelchair access, and the attraction is flat all the way through. Our friendly staff will take you to the elevator and into the show.
