I enjoyed this. Lots of interesting, funny things to look at, and it was very wheelchair friendly. Staff was super nice too. We got their discount package, so we got to see the wax museum and aquarium also, at a much cheaper rate.

I only visited because family members insisted. It's kinda interesting but I would recommend spending your money on other attractions NOT on the bayfront.

The best display of the balloon bomb story is at the Klamath county museum in Klamath Falls, Oregon. You will be impressed!

For those that remember Ripley's as a tv show or print in newspapers, its a blast from the past down memory lane. Its the last gasp of freak shows and oddities that hasn't changed in 20 years. If you haven't ever seen it, its worth...More

Locate on the bay front. Many unbelievable items. Parking is not very handy. Nice gift shop that is shared with Wax Works.

I really enjoyed Ripley’s, but I do like weird, odd things lol. There was a lot to see, but it was quite short to get through. Did the 3 pack with the Wax and undersea gardens. Only took about 2hrs to do all 3. Worth...More

We probably only spent a half hour here, but we did enjoy the silly fun to be had here and at the Waxworks. Too expensive for what you get, but still fun to be included in a tour of the Newport area. Defiantly try to...More
