  • You could read any of what u see online! It was horrible, waste of $40 and not even clean or kept up. The signs were hand Written and not even framed! The only cool item was the rolling ball on the wa...  more »

  • 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.
  • Had my 7 year old grandson with us he had a blast spent almost the whole day there is plenty to do and see I recommend it for parents with children of all age😁😁
  • Ripley's museums are always fun. I liked some of the gothic attractions that this one had like the african hate god and the shrunken heads.
  • I bought tickets to the Ripleys Aquarium online and it offered a package which included tickets to the Ripleys Odditorium. It is a 3 story museum with some fun things to see but it's probably a little too dark for younger children. My 5 year old daughter did not do well with certain parts that had more of a haunted house type feel to them. It took us about 30-40 mins to see everything. Not as entertaining as the Guiness World Records Museum in my opinion.
  • Fun. I thought it was fair priced if you consider it's kind of a tourist town so. I don't recall if the Orlando one was any cheaper really. Cool stuff to look at though.
