“Adult Fun”
Reviewed March 7, 2013

Ripley's is a fun diversion for adults and teens. There were several rooms that I felt were not appropriate (sexual or violent images) for my 8 year old niece, and I had to cover her eyes because you have to walk through every room. My older kids (19, 17) and husband enjoyed it though. Think carefully about taking kids younger than 12 or 13.

“Great Birthday Party Experience”
Reviewed February 14, 2013

I called 2 days before I wanted to bring my son and his friends to Ocean City for a birthday party and they easily accomodated us. Jenna handled the plans and everything went smoothly. The staff was friendly and the kids loved it as it was different from the typical bowling party, etc.. The price was very reasonable and because we did not bring the maximum number of kids allowed, they even gave us a discount. Would definitely reccommend it for a unique birthday party for kids!

“It gets an A”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

I hadn't been to Ocean City in 12 years and it was my first walk on the boardwalk since 2000. Much has changed since then and Ripley's Believe it or not! was worth the price of admission and mirror maze. My girflriend, her friend, and I had a lot of fun inside that mirror maze despite it giving me a blinding headache just trying to get out of it. I was first out of it, luckily.

The museum was great from start to finish and I was heavily impressed with all the exhibits. Going through the whirly tube made me sick but it was a ton of laughs!

Most recommended for ages 11 and up. Kiddies? I don't think so.

I absolutely loved this place. There is so much to do and greatly priced too for ocean city prices. $20.99 and you get everything. The museum, the mirror maze, and the laser race..all of it and you can continue to return to the maze throughout day as well. The museum has so many interesting things in it from the srunken head to the elaborate camel bone carving a great experience everyone in the family can enjoy.
