Houses some pretty interesting things, but over all I expected more. I was able to combine with the Aquarium, but if I had to pay for just the singe ticket I would be pretty disappointed.

Was there yesterday, if you are a local resident you get half price discount. The place is cool, nice walk ,on your own pace. A lot of interesting things. You see all the things that made Ripley famous, nice family fun.

Wax museums, haunted/fun houses aren't normally my cup of tea but when you're a dad on a morning stroll with his 11y old daughter and you find yourself saying no to every overpriced attraction, well, maybe you need to lighten up. The Ripley's name still has history and a reputation to it so I introduced her to the bizarre world... More

Hey, want to go to Ripley's, just go somewhere, lol. Seriously, not too shabby, not great, not lousy, it's a Ripley's, and instead of having one with a bunch of stuff, they have a bunch with less, good strategy I guess, as everytime we see a different Ripley's, we go because a different Ripley's is different.

I loved the Ripley's Believe it or Not Nuseum. I had the opportunity to share my experience as a child of Ripley's

Wow!!! This was an interesting tour, I was so amazed about all this stuff, from different countries, cultures, civilizations etc. Through all this you learned or better say, your knowledge grows, of course there are some things are not really important, but they come from people who did something and from now on they will be in the history of...

I had always told my boys about going here when i was a kid and how much fun it was. But somethings should stay in the past, the tickets are WAY overpriced, no idea how they can sleep at night charging that much! There are worse places to spend on a Saturday afternoon at the beach, but at least they... More
