"Fun for a rainy day!"

This was a nice attraction to do on a rainy day. It had a lot of different exhibits but may be too scary for small children.

"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.

While walking on the boardwalk with the kids we decided to go inside Ripley's and it was smaller than the one we previously visited in Orlando. The kids seemed bored and not really interested in much.

I hadn't been to a Ripleys since I was a kid and we decided to give it a try. It was fun with some pretty interesting displays, the boys got a kick out of the more bizarre and unique ones.

Went here when my young adult kids were visiting and were bored. Got $2off each ticket by ordering on line but it was still expensive at $14.99 per person. It's mostly photos and reading about them which is OK and some of the stuff WAS pretty interesting but less than half way through I had a claustrophobia attack. I realize this is an unreasonable fear but if you have claustrophobia of any type do not go here. Also they don't have a parking lot so expect to pay extra for that.

It was fun, but could have been better. My son enjoyed it though, there are enough things that make you say I don't believe it!

This was our first time going and we had fun, We found out about a $5 discount while we were eating lunch at the pier and a plane flew by with the offer, Our son had a blast and we spend about an hour walking through and looking at all the oddities, I'm sure you could spend 2+ hours if you read everything and really took your time but our meter was running, I doubt we would go back unless things change inside but it was a cool experience.
