  • I had been to Ripley's as a teenager in Estes Park. I remembered loving it. Apparently as you age you are harder to impress. I didn't find it that interesting and my granddaughter was bored. 
  • This was a very fun thing to do with the family. I wasn't sure if my daughter who is 7 would enjoy it, but she had so much fun and wants to come again! 
  • We come here every year, the people are nice. The lady that takes pictures even physically walked us to the elevator(had mom with me and she is handicapped) very impressed with the customer service an...  more »

  • We thought it was very interesting! But we wish it was a little bigger. Everyone was also very friendly! Great place to go!!
  • Great place the take the kids. Thought I would see a bunch of Ripley's stuff I've already seen, but this place surprised me with unique displays and fun rooms. Seemed like the rooms never stopped, until the end. One person who worked there told me some of the displays are seasonal. I'm guessing this is so they try to lure everyone back for multiple trips. Good times. Highly recommend it. Took my family of four about 2.5 hours to traverse the entire building.
  • Staff was very nice. A lot of interesting things to look at. Doesn't take very long to go through tough. Less than an hour.
  • A good way for the kids to spend a rainy afternoon. We have been to other Ripley's in other cities, and this one didn't have as much to see. But there was lots of hands on things for the kids to do and try, like optical illusions and games. Price was more than I would have paid, had it not been raining, and coupons were not as common as in other towns. Our kids (ages 8-17) loved it, much more than my husband or I, and neither of us liked the price (20$/15$ ad/ch).
  • Very pricy! My husband and I went here durning our honeymoon. The place was cool to walk thru but 40 buck for the two of us was way to much. It takes about 30 mins to walk and enjoy all the facts and cools things. I think it would be better if it was priced at $10.00 a person not $20.00
