Great visit! On our list of things to do for a quick weekend stay-cation. If you enjoy oddities and museums, you will not leave disappointed. My favorite is the wax portion of the museum. We had a blast!

If you have never been to a Ripley's Odditorium or the Wax museum, you need to. This is the second one I have visited. They have so many neat and unusual items and information about things all over the world. The people in the Wax museum seem so real. This one had a room that was full of all of the previous U.S presidents. If your looking for a neat place to visit put this on your list.

I entered and paid almost $21 to enter into the wax museum. They have Star Trek, actors, Disney characters, US Presidents, singers, Jesus, etc. Took many pictures on my Samsung phone. I would recommend it. They also have an optional Jack the Ripper exhibit at the end which can be scary for kids.

The Ripley's Believe It or Not was bigger than we thought. We actually read the artifacts signs and walls. It can get crowded and towards the end we couldn't really enjoy the rooms because of the layout. We added out the Mirror Maze. We were in there about five minutes and was not worth the money. Enjoy the Ripley's section and then enjoy ride home.

My wife, granddaughter, and I visited the Ripley’s palace on a cold, rainy day in the MetroPlex. Upon arrival, you are presented with a choice of entering the regular Ripley’s exhibit, the wax museum, the mirror maze, and the laser challenge. We chose to do the regular exhibit and the wax museum for a cost of approximately $62 for two adults and one child. Parking is free.

Some of the wax museum figures were done sometime in the past and need a refresh. Others are modern and done very nicely. There is a horror part of the wax museum that can be too scary for younger children. You have the chance to sit with Oprah or simulate punching Dr. Phil. There are historical figures, music and movie stars, historical figures, etc.

The Ripley’s Odditorium had some interesting items, but I must confess that I would rather read a Ripley’s book. Younger kids do not seem to have the patience to stop and look at everything, let alone read the accompanying information. Some of the hands-on items are interesting for younger children.

The laser challenge appears to demand physical agility. The mirror maze looks to be fun for kids. Note that we did not do either of these activities as we didn't have the time to do so.

There is a gift shop, but many of the items are made in China and not worth the money. There are some items that are on clearance that you might consider as a souvenir. Ultimately, they make a lot of money off of cheap stuff.

There is a snack bar area, but we did not eat there. There are clean restrooms near the entrance to the snackbar/Ripley's "Impossible" laser challenge.
