“Interesting way to spend an hour”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

If you're into the weird and sometimes creepy then you'll find this an interesting way to spend an hour or two. If you are unsure just go in anyway. Loved the weirdos at the entrance singing Lady Gaga (you'll know what I mean when you get there).

“Probably better then London's Ripleys!”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

I've been to Ripley's in London and I still enjoyed it. Some of the things were the same some were different. I definitely would recommend it to friends.
Loved it!

“Very interesting”
Reviewed February 17, 2014

I went here with my family..we really enjoyed Ripley's as we hadn't been there in about 10 years. I liked how they had made changes so it wasn't all the same. I thought the price was a little steep, but then for what they had to offer I guess it was reasonable. You walk though at your own pace (I think it took us a little over a hour) and had a variety of interactive things, videos and reading material.
