Your self-guided adventure is sure to astonish as you come face to face with remarkable relics and rare treasures from around the World. With almost 9,000 square feet to explore, you will discover 350 genuine artefacts, amazing stories of history and adventure, magic, mystery, incredible illusions, fun interactive games, life-size figurines of unusual characters who actually lived and unbelievable movies! Simply an amazing journey of on an hour or more - That's Wow Factor fun for everyone! New addition, Ripley's Impossible LaseRace™, is the only LaseRace™ in the Southern Hemisphere and tests the guile and agility of participants as they duck, shimmy, pivot, and crawl through a maze of bright green laser beams in an effort to achieve the best possible time. Touch a laser, and time is added onto your score. Enjoy four difficulty levels and play as long as you want! (Included in General Admission).

Ripley's only takes a couple of hours at most to get through. Or you can skip the reading, and take 30mins at most. There is lots to look at, and some things are interactive, but I probably wouldn't take really young children, or they may get bored easily. There are some pretty interesting things to learn about there, but I think the price is a little steep for something that you just walk through, and only takes as long as you want, so it is a good way to fill in some time.

Very interesting, a feast of unusual and strange people and other things on display. Best place in town when it is raining or you need a break from the sun.
