  • Had a great family fun day here at Ripley's with the wife and kids, we had as much or more fun then the kids, great place to visit. 
  • We were presented passes to Ripley's for all events. The odditorium offers many different facts and unusual pieces , the second floor offers an titanic experience. This was one of the best or most imp...  read more »
  • I visited this place to spend time before my checkin...The 7D theater experience was all was just time pass and average to below average experience 
  • It was fun. My 10 and 14 year old both enjoyed it. I have enjoyed Ripley's since I was a kid. Now that I'm older, it not as exciting as I remember, but we still had a good time. After your done with everything, your kind of like... is that it? Waiting for more... You only get to do everything once... bummer. The Mirror Maze and Lazer Race is fun, but I wish they were both twice the size. The 7 D movie is exciting! But only once and its not long enough. I love the Odditorium and really spend the time walking through and reading all the interesting things there. When we were done we combined the trip with Wonder Works across the street. Together. They were satisfying.
  • The inside of the building is much larger than the outside leads you to believe! The odditurium was so much fun, very informative. My favorite part was the Jade ship carving. The mirror maze was also a very fun and unique experience! The only downside, and I won't take off a star because it isn't the businesses fault, is sometimes it's a bit too crowded, and small children were running around being awful. If they had an adult's only day or time slot id be all about that. Nonetheless, if you're in the area on a date or with kids, you should come here.
  • Great place to visit and the whole family enjoyed it!!! Great staff and lots to do and see while your there. Exciting maze of mirrors really awesome souvenir shop and my kids really enjoyed the 3D Ride at the end!!
  • I was not extremely interested in visiting this attraction but my boyfriend was extremely excited about it being so close when we visited Panama City. Overall I think the visit was well worth the price. We bought the complete tickets for all of the attractions in the Ripley's building. The mirror maze was extremely fun, definitely the longest mirror maze I've ever done before. We each bought a pair of the Ripley's glasses for the maze, they make rainbows off of light and while they didn't do much other than make the maze impossible I also believe those were worth it. The laser activity was fun as well, although it was extremely short. You only get one attempt with a ticket and it doesn't last very long but it's a fun activity for all ages -- we are both adults and enjoyed it. The "museum" part was much larger than I had expected and there was so much to be seen. It was also extremely interactive. The theater was not at all what I expected - we chose to do pirates - but it was just as entertaining as the rest of the place. I won, and my boyfriend was told to swab the deck! If you are in the area and looking for a day trip at a reasonable price (they had student discounts and there were coupons available in booklets all over the city) then I would highly recommend this attraction.
  • Omg the best place EVERRRRR really enjoyed it
