"It was ok"

My grandson wanted to go for his birthday, i surprised him with tickets. He loved it! As far as for me...It was just ok. The price could've been cheaper for the venue.

"Oddities galore"
September, 2018
This was my families first time to the odditorium, although I visited a few times 30+ years ago. It's been around a looong time! There are so many cool things to see. There's quite a bit of reading to do to get the whole experience, and that might not be too easy for kids say younger than 10. It's good that you go at your own pace so you can spend half an hour if you want or 3 hours if you want. It's definitely a cool thing to do while in Myrtle.

Tip: You can take pictures. Good for older kids 10 and up if you want them to read.

Luckily we were able to get discounted tickets from the Reserve Myrtle Beach site. It saved us $40. But, overall there's nothing new here at Ripley's. It's the same as the other Ripleys. We spent $55 for a family of 5 and were out of there in 40 minutes.

"Ripleys"
May, 2018
First of all , super convenient to purchase tickets o Reserve - thanks!! We decided at the last minute to check out Ripleys - and I was a hero for instant tickets. The place is interesting, curious. Ok for the price - lots of “replicas of”. Decent for the price. The building seems very old and smelled funny, but the staff members we came into contact with were great- friendly and helpful. It was estimated to take 45 min, depending on how busy they are and how quickly you move through the rooms.

Tip: Parking on the street tough- if you don’t get something close , you may have to walk a bit. Bring a debit/credit card for the meter( or change of course)

You really do have to see what's inside in order to get the full feeling of the place. So many displays that keep you wanting to see more. A good place for the tourists to go.

Well I really enjoyed the Ripley’s books as a child and was hoping for some unusual things to learn about on my first visit to Ripley’s Myrtle beach. I was highly disappointed and we walked through very quickly as all the displays were very poorly done and uninteresting. Do not waste the time here☹️

Mainly photos of weird things. Admission should be free. I don't feel that any children or adults would enjoy this.
