It seemed all gimmicky and fake. The only historic place they take you to is outside the fort. I recommend doing a walking tour that actually takes you past historic places at night.

My two little boys and I did the Ripley's Ghost Train and loved it. Our ghost host, Scott H, was fabulous. He made it so fun. He just had a great personality. We loved the ghost hosts who did the tour when the train got back so the ghost tour continued inside Ripley's. They were awesome as well. We got to see some ghost shots on one of the guide's phone that were captured during a tour. Someone in our group caught something too. Highly recommend this. We had a great time and would do it again. Great history tid bits too.

Not worth the money or time. The trolly makes 2 stops. Start at the Ripley museum then went to another Ripley owned property that was less than Interesting. Then went to the Castillo San Marcos where u just walk around on your own. Then back to the Ripley museum which is supposedly haunted. The guides tried hard a did a good job. We won't be back or recommend
Oh yea they give u some rake e meter things that dont work.

We purchased our tickets online (as part of a combo package) & redeemed them at the Ripleys Castle. Upon check in, you are given devices you will need on the tour. Our guide was Scott H. He kept everyone engaged and made the tour alot of fun, all the while giving us historical information. We had fun as adults, but it was appropriate for our children as well (7 & 10). Our favorite part of the tour was going inside the castle at night(super creepy).

For my son's first ghost tour we didn't want too scary. However, if you are over the age of eight, the tour really is underwhelming. It felt like there was not enough time spend at any site, and the sites relied on creepy props. I didn't hate it, but didn't love it either.
