We enjoyed all of the weird facts and displays but this was not a crazy neat place. The best part was the 7D simulator and movie.

his place is amazing and fun to walk through but you need to take your time or you will miss something interesting. You will need a couple of hours to go and see all of the strange and cool items.

Some of the exhibits were more interactive here than at other Ripley's we've visited. The Titanic and play area for little ones especially stand out.
