We went to Ripley's on a rainy day during our Beaxh vacay and it was tons of fun. We spent at least two hours at the place and it was interesting at every turn!

In the process of doing the Ripley's Believe it of Not Ripley collected lots of curiosities, some of which are here. There are lots of fun items to view and read about. The sinking shaped building is because they have a Titanic display. I didn't do the extra activities, such as the maze. A fun rainy day activity.

Ripley's was full of neat oddities and interctive things to do. The titanic room was the best to me. We only did the odditorium and it was $30 for the 2 of us. They have other packages and options but it does take a long time to go through everything so I think it's worth the money.

It was OK, maybe would have been more interesting with kids. We decided to stop on while it was raining a little pricey for the experience but it was interesting. Wouldn't be interested in visiting again

It might have been the date and time when we went but Ripley's was packed and if that is a normal day it is the crowds which let the venue down. The exhibits, mirror maze and 7D theatre are excellent. Especially the 7D theatre which was fun and even had people screaming. There are two shows on, one geared for... More

Thank you for visiting and we apologize for the crowd. Normally, when it rains, we get busy because everyone comes off the beach to look for indoor activities. I am glad you still enjoyed the exhibits. Hopefully, you can come back and visit when it is less crowded. More

We bought the combo ticket at Wonderworks so it didn't cost us that much to go. The kids enjoyed it (8, 7, 4 1/2, and 3) There is a lot of reading, but even for little ones that can't read it's neat to look around. I'd rather spend time on the beach or pool, but if it's raining or you... More

While we found some things interesting and we enjoyed the moving theater I have to be honest and say this was way over priced in our opinions. The lazier exhibit either wasn't working properly or just wasn't very good. We did enjoy parts of it but not enough for the expense. Sorry

I am sorry to read that you felt the attractions were overpriced. We do offer discount coupons in the local guides which are distributed throughout the city. I hope you will be able to come back and give us another chance. More
