  • This, with the adjoining Wax Works and Undersea Gardens is a reasonably entertaining indoor diversion on the Newport Bayfront. If you know the old Ripley's cartoons, this is a collection of exhibits r...  more »
  • Have been to the Ripley's at Fisherman's Wharf, so I knew what to expect. Kitchy, but fun. Some interesting facts. 
  • Great entertainment for the whole family. You get a lot of early believe it or not newspaper stories with recreations of the sometimes startling facts Ripley discovered mostly in the far east.

  • I planned this trip with some friends for several months. We are form Aberdeen Wa, it is about a 4.5 hour drive. I must say the websites are a bit deceiving as to the reality of the experience. That being said the kids had a ton of fun as they have a collection of the books. The highlight was the kids putting their heads in the jar and the t.v reflecting their image back. Pricy, not bad for all three.exhibits.
  • We were told it was interactive and there wasn't much there that was. Wide variety of displays and cool rooms along the way. The best part was the dance light show room! Awesome gift shop at the end.
  • Ok now, I'm NOT saying to not go here!, I am just saying it was a bit underwhelming. That said it is a lovely reminder of our childhood. If you were born in the 70's or 80's you remember this sort of thing being FAScinating when you were a little one. Now-a-days kids have a different set of expectations, anamatronic and laser tricks don't quite hold their attention. But there is still a place for this sort of attraction on the family road trip. There are some interesting exhibits and Ripley's had made a reputation for itself over the years for getting some really great artifacts. In today's world we hear and see these sorts of things on shows, podcasts and youtube all of the time so it's less awe inspiring at it once was. But to have it all in one place is a fun adventure none-the-less. My personal favorite was the engaging dance room with a camera that depicts your movements on a screen in front of you with fun rainbow filters. Great tunes to help you move. Not gonna lie, I want one at home. If you buy the pass for all three venues it's not a terrible price to entertain the little ones for an hour or more. Plan to spend some money in the gift shop as two of the spaces exit right into it. The photo booth is also fun and easy to use.
  • Gross. Obviously no one visits. Girl at counter was watching a movie on her phone when we arrived. My thoughts before entering (we all finished our ice cream cones before entering) was.. "wow, this place is old. Needs some updates... and slightly creepy." No one entered or exited while we finished our cones (a good 10 to 15 min). Stages haven't been updated, cleaned or dusted in years. They're main show/exhibit was odd people. Dead people. With deformations. Wtf. Obviously it hadn't been updated in like 25 years. We all have seem this crap on the history chanel... then quickly turned it to something more interesting. Seriously just stupid. Don't waste your money. Seriously. It was 47 bucks for 4 adults. Really... I could have bought an awesome silver ring that would have lasted a LIFETIME for that amount of money. Sorry folks... believe it or not. But... if you are into being slightly grossed out and creeped... like an old haunted house. Go for it. Could be JUST for you... if your THAT hard up. Your local haunted house in October would knock this crap show out of the park by 10 fold! Seriously. I felt slightly stupider leaving. FIRST WASTING MY GD MONEY!
  • Really fun place, maybe not for younger children. Learned a lot of interesting and random facts.
