Every Ripley's we have been to is different. This one is multi levey. There is an elevator if needed. Loads to see and plenty to do. Great staff. Always worth a stop.

They say if you've been to one you've been to them all which is pretty much true. If you're looking to get the kids out and about to spend a few hours doing something different it is worth the time, just very costly.

We went to Ripley's one afternoon because the ocean was closed for Jellyfish. It was very interesting and we enjoyed the time we spent there.

We needed a family activity during the day while it was raining and decided to go to this and Wonder Works. There was so many interesting things at Ripley's that we were there for about 2 hours and could have stayed longer. It was clean and everything worked (unlike some which have many broken activities). I suggest to go to this after lunch when the crowds are not as big.

We basically went as a time killer until we could check in to our condo for the week. It was very crowded and expensive! Some of it was interesting- the Titanic room and the different pictures done in different art styles (push pins, guitar picks, old records, dryer lint, mustard and ketchup) were our favorite parts. While we did enjoy our time, in our opinion, it's not really worth the money. We would not go again.

We visited on a Thursday afternoon and it was busier than we anticipated since it was a beautiful day outside. Their website also stated they encourage wearing a mask but the staff weren’t. We were the only ones in masks. Both my husband and I are fully vaccinated but still wore ours. The exhibits were neat, especially the Titanic room. It was pricey for what it was in our opinion. It was $96 for our family of four and many of the exhibits can be scary so we were only there about an hour due to moving along quickly either due to crowded areas of unmasked folks or the content being scary to the kids. It’s a one and done type of place for us.

It’s Ripley’s. It always interesting, always good for two hours & something to do on those rainy beach days or when you’re too sunburned to stay out that day. 😉 The exhibit boards are some of the same from other Ripley’s and some of the art style pieces are unique to their subject, but not necessarily to their style (portraits by bright light/crayon tips, movie characters made from metal junk, etc...) but overall, it was fun.

The BEST part is the Titanic exhibit. That was new, fresh & VERY interesting! We spent the most time there. Lots of information to see & read.

Seeing all the relics that were there were interesting. I saw many things that made me wonder . There were a couple of figures that were quite scary.

Very rainy day and it was packed. One thing that we were immediately struck by is that many visitors were not wearing masks. This was disappointing of course because we had noticed and selected this attraction because they had posted that masks were required. No social distance, no mask enforcement, crazy packed. It seemed like the staff was a bit overwhelmed.

However, since we had pre-purchased tickets we were sort of committed. Tickets are pricey. It’s a bit of a tourist trap and I’d guess that many of the items and displays are reproduced versus actual objects but it’s an enjoyable way to spend an hour or two. As with most tourist-centric attractions, you enter and exit through the gift shop. That being said, it’s got a funky exterior and kids (and kids at heart) love it. This is what Ripley’s is all about and should be expected.
