Weird. A lil' disturbing. Wouldn't want to go a second time!

I found this Ripleys to be a little disturbing with many reference to the dead and violence. However, there was a really interesting rotating tunnel and maze experience, which got... read more

I went to Believe it or not last year and we enjoy it. It is small, but interested and I loved specially the bridge that make you feel like you were turning 180 degrees while you walk on it.

Very reasonably priced. There is so much to see. I spent hours in the museum with my 11 year old son. This is a must do attraction when visiting Atlantic City with your children.

I found this Ripleys to be a little disturbing with many reference to the dead and violence. However, there was a really interesting rotating tunnel and maze experience, which got my head spinning. It's expensive for the price and the fortune telling/palm reading exhibits are again priced (and are a hoax!) - But there are some very interesting tidbits of... More

Lots of cool stuff to see. We went through the whole exhibit in about an hour. Less expensive than I thought it would be. A nice little distraction from gambling and drinking lol

My husband and I visited the Ripleys in Ocean City and really enjoyed it, so when we saw a great Groupon deal for the Ripleys in Atlantic City, we jumped on it. We took our 13 year old son, who really wanted to go after seeing our pictures from the OC location. We were a bit disappointed. There was a... More

I got two tickets on Groupon for $22 and thought it was well worth it. It took about 2 hours to go through and if you take the time to read and look all around there are a lot of interesting exhibits including a gypsy wagon, shrunken heads, and a giant clam. There is also a Lazer maze which would... More

Went there a few years ago with my husband and we found it to be very interesting. It's rather small, compared to the one in the city, but it still has a nice variety of exhibits which are very weird and odd. Overall, we enjoyed ourselves. Not the type of place you go to twice though.

I wanted to take my kids to this attraction because when I was younger I went. But the price has changed greatly since I was younger. Anyone with a large family will be disappointed with how much it costs just to get in.

We stayed next door all week and finally decided to stop in the last day that we were there. Wish we would have saved our money for something else. Mostly just pictures hanging on the walls with stories about the pictures. For what we paid to get in, it was nothing like we were expecting, it was very disappointing. The... More

Interesting but expensive for what it is. Alot of signs to read and young kids would not take the time or parent would have to read. Have to pay extra for interactive games/exhibits.
