  • Wished it was longer! Not much to it. Ended up waisting one of my pick 4s. Wish i couldve done something else instead 
  • We went this past week with a 15 year old and 10 year old twins. We all enjoyed it, though many of the displays were duplicates to Ripley's Believe It or Not. The games at the end were a lot of fun. I...  more »
  • 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...  more »

  • Not worth the money. Was basically like they took pages from the book and posted them on the wall, with an arcade at the end. The staff was all very friendly though! The wrist bands are made of fabric and only tighten! Very dangerous! When I tried to get it off it just kept tightening till my blood flow was cut off to my hand! The rubix cube solving robot at the entrance was the only neat thing.
  • Part of the Ripley package deal.OK in that case.Fun in basement with games.But would never pay just for it.Out of date stuff. You can look it up on web.
  • 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.
  • Broken exhibits and some blatant falsehoods, like the age of the universe in light-years (unit of distance). Amusing collection of facts, but why bother stating the windiest place with a metric like max MPH as a place different than the highest land windspeed (also max MPH)? It's like this science centric museum wasn't curated by a scientist.
  • 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.
