Ripley's Believe It or Not!

It was fun in spots and incredibly bogus in others. My 4yr old daughter was terrified but on the other hand my 13 yr old son had lots of fun.

If you go expecting to have your mind blown, you'll be disappointed. But if you go expecting it to be what it is - cheesy, silly fun - you'll have a great time!

It was exactly what I expected it to be ... silly, interesting, fun, not too serious. I've been to several Ripley's and it's a bit smaller than most, but it's the same fun fare. Give yourself about 30-40 minutes to go through it. Campy? Yes. But that's what it's supposed to be!

Note: This is in "Mariner's Square" and they offer a deal where you can get into all three attractions (Ripley's, The Wax Works and The Undersea Gardens). Please read reviews of the other two attractions carefully before deciding to pay extra for all three. I wouldn't.
