"Interesting"
June, 2016
I hadn't been to a Ripley's since I was a child so this was a nostalgic stop for me. The young man wasn't sure what to do with our e-tickets and had to go get a manager. She showed him how to ring it up and we were on our way. I had read the reviews that said there was a lot of reading throughout the exhibit but I felt it was balanced with the displays and a few hands on things. It might not appeal to everyone but we enjoyed it.

The family visited the Ripleys Believe it or Not during our vacation to Myrtle beach. The expereince can be enjoyed by all regardless of age. My boys are 12 and 14 years old and they both had a great time . With the advent of the internet, I imagined my kids somewhat unimpressed with human oddities, but they really enjoyed the sights and stories that went with each exibit.

how could you not love a Ripley's, they have such cool unusual stuff. We had a fun time exploring the place. I knocked off 1 star because for the price it was a little small. it took us only about 40 minutes to get through it and we stop a lot to take pictures and to do all the interactive stuff.
