  • The best part of this attraction was the games at the end, however, many of the games were out of order. We also had a very bad experience with one of the workers there. I don't think that we would ev...  read more »
  • On a hot day, it might be good to get off the strip. Lots of interesting records to see. Fun for the family. 
  • Only part of this was very interested and worth going for. The interactive games you see advertised on TV that look so fun and appealing to young teens weren't working correctly. Several weren't worki...  read more »
  • Really the only reason it's getting two stars is the fact that the staff was really friendly and it was really clean. This was a lot cooler than when I was a kid. It was a bunch of replicas and some of interactions were lagged or not working properly. When 3 staff members, have to come by constantly checking equipment because it's malfunctioning is a big bad sign. Not worth the money spent or the timer overall. There are some cool things but pretty much you can find all of it on Google. Don't be lured into Ripley's packages it's a rip off. See my Ripley's Aquarium review and check out my other Gatlinburg reviews!
  • This is a nice place. My family and I visited a few months ago before it got too busy. Nice exhibits and really nice alot was computerized so all you had to do what press a button to read or listen. Really enjoyed our visit!
  • Just lots of fun. Not a bad price, either. Sort of like a competitive playground. Good for kids if it's not crowded
  • Everything could be seen online. Had ONE cool thing that was modeled to scale and you could see that outside. Don't waste your money.
  • We had fun at the World Record museum. It was considerably shorter than the other Ripley's attractions we did though. Many of the interactive exhibits were down. Still, seeing the worlds fastest, smallest, tallest, biggest, and best was good fun.
