  • I love things like this and Ripley's did not disappoint! This is a great place to unwind and check out another perspective. Maybe some people might shy away but probably not many! I found it very inte...  more »
  • Took a group of teenagers to this attraction. Fortunately, our group had found a way to get discount tickets - the "rack rate" for tickets here is high! Our tickets let us go to two other attractions ...  more »
  • Fairly expensive for what you get. Can't say it was that exciting. Staff seemed to just be going through the motions. Would not recommend unless you are extremely bored.  more »

  • While it can be pretty entertaining, my rating is based off of the customer service. Not only did the teenager working that day charge me adult price for a 4 year old (paid about $80 for me, my husband and son) but he also tried ripping us off by charging us $30 each for 2 Ripley's experiences, when online it clearly states that is not the price. When we challenged him on the price he had nothing to say. Also we paid around 4pm, and they were closing at 5"30 for a spacial event. Apparently they forgot we were inside because they shut down and the girl at the end had to unlock the doors to let us out and was rather rude about it, even though they were the ones who forgot they had customers inside and we were clearly out before the 5:30 closing.
  • It doesn't look like much on the outside, but it is three floors of fun stuff you would not expect. My husband and our three kids speed in and spent a couple hours walking through. I recommend. Also perfect for a rainy day.
  • While at the Alamo Bought Discount tickets from Groupon and went to see the oddities. its very interesting and a lot of fun lots to see and do and touch. They even had a wheelchair they let my wife use because her knee was giving out because of all the walking we had done
  • Kitschy items of questionable quality and quantity in a faux museum setup. Great place for kids and teenagers to visit, and everyone should visit at least once just to check it off the list. Once you have been to one Ripley's, you have been to just about all of them. Right across from the Alamo, so you pay inflated tourist prices, or prices that seem more than what it should cost.
  • My first time here was when I was 6 years old. I am 30 now and still love love this location and all it has to offer. The upgrades in the Wax museum are amazing. Very happy. Must see in San Antonio!!
