We had two tickets given to us at the hotel by departing guests. We have been to a couple Ripley's before but were sure glad we didn't pay for this one. Based on the dusty old exhibits and interior condition they poured allot more $$$$ into the outside to garner tourist attention. If you have some extra $$ and want... More

Some really wacky stuff there, but it's pretty easy to lose interest in it after a little while. Buy a combo ticket for Ripley's other attractions or the skywheel to make it more worthwile. Seems like the overall experience would be best for a younger crowd.

It is a fun way to spend a couple of hours. something will interest everyone in this place. It is what it claims to be a center of oddities. escape the weather and head in. they are... More

Always fun to get out of the rain (or too much sun) and visit the exhibits here. Kids love it and its all you expect from a tourist attraction!

What a unique place to visit - we really enjoyed ourselves w/ our 9 y/o son. We had a Groupon deal so made this place even more attractive. Not sure what full boat price is but, if you go in the offseason look for a deal. The area around it is kinda seedy - loads of people trying to get... More

We went there because we bought the ticket at the Aquarium. Because I used to watch the show I was excited about this visit. Not worth it. It is small. The highlight was at the end when you see the recording of one session you are trying to twist your tongue, so you can imagine how funny it was.

I really didn't want to go, but my daughter did. What a great surprise. We had a great time and learned a lot. Our daughter loved the bridge and the screen that you move in front of!

Currently they are offering a Groupon deal for the aquarium + 1 other attraction of your choice. With our extra Groupon promotion we paid $19/each for 2 attractions, well worth it. The believe it or not was a bit boring till we got to the end portion that was interactive. I loved the dancing color changing room it made me... More
