It was Educational

It was an OK visit. Some cool things to see and a few neat things to learn about but kind of on the boring side.

I don't know if the air was broke or what but it was very hot. I enjoyed it, but Ripley's Believe It or Not did not hold my 12 year old sons interest for long.

Look at it online and you will see everything in the museum it is over priced for what you get. Staff spoke very little english so asking any question was pointless. will not go back

I love this place! Very cool exhibits and a lot of them are interactive. You never know what is around the next corner, and it is one of the most interesting attractions in Myrtle Beach. If you love the unordinary, you better visit this place.

What's better then seeing fish in a tank?! A shark tunnel, watching all different types interact with each other. Sharks swimming beside and above you. Mermaid shows, petting stingrays and baby sharks. We loved the ripleys aquarium in Myrtle beach! Oh and petty jelly fish!!

We purchased a 3 in one ticket for Ripley's attractions and chose this one to visit. There were plenty of wonderful items set throughout with a little bit of something for everyone! Each room held new and strange things, some were interactive which made it lots of fun! I recommend this to anyone although a few of the items may... More

This place was really pathetic. We have been to a few of these in other areas and they are usually pretty good. This one was worse than I thought it would be (and my expectations were low). Skip this one. Also we went at night and that whole area is completely disgusting & scary.
