Experience three unique attractions including the authentically unbelievable Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium, the exciting movies that you ride at Ripley's 4D Moving Theater and our larger-than-life Louis Tussaud's WaxWorks. Since 1918, our Believe It or Not Odditoriums have showcased the eclectically bizarre collection of Robert Ripley. We have carried on Ripley's tradition of scouring the globe for the world's most unbelievable exhibits. Authentic shrunken heads, two-headed animals and, a 19th century vampire killing kit only scratches the surface of what's behind the doors of Ripley's San Antonio.

Went on the 4th of July weekend so was pretty crowded but felt It was well organized. Some nice exhibits and should be fun for kids looking for indoor things to do on a hot summer day.

We bought the ticket to visit three sites and it was worth it. The wax museum, the 4D ride and the Believe it or not museum. All three have their own theme and will keep you entertained. Out of the three, the Believe or not...More

It was just ok. I got tired of reading things. The horror section was the best. Something to do in doors when it is during the summer and very hot. Price was just ok.
