  • Ripley's Believe it or Not in Gatlinburg was an interesting place to visit. It didn't have as much as I expected, but was still fun, with some interactive exhibits for you to do. When we visited, we d...  more »

  • This place is great for younger kids, but adults exposed to the Internet have already seen or heard about most of the interesting facts. That being said, it's still exciting to see the collection of items, but there wasn't anything groundbreaking to see. Most of the little puzzles and games are designed for a younger crowd.
  • Nice attraction. Got to know few things which are really amazing. Staff is very friendly and provided good deal. Work watching it. Enjoy your time.
  • I actually enjoyed this more than I thought I would-lots of hands on stuff for kids and adults to enjoy-about 2 hours is more than enough time to see Everything and play with the hands on entertainment. Nearby to the aquarium and other attractions so you can park once.
  • A fun, if dated, exhibit. Not really worth the high price of admission. Check out the aquarium (also owned by Ripley's) instead!
  • Good time, great price with the aquarium ticket combos! I loved that they had shorter signs talking about the objects. Takes too long sometimes to read the longer explanations.
