    Ripley's is always very funny here in San Antonio there are many attractions that amuse and impress at any age you can take a picture inside a box, next to the world's tallest man or inside a huge tire! Bella la sala optical illusions in which depending on where it appears on the screen as Giants or instead tiny Fun pass in the middle of a tunnel illuminated with images that give the illusion that the floor is turning funny also the final room where dancing projecting images on a big screen Then in every Hall there are many surprises and I don't want to disclose them all we all enjoyed it very much!

    Went on the 4th of July weekend so was pretty crowded but felt It was well organized. Some nice exhibits and should be fun for kids looking for indoor things to do on a hot summer day.  more »

    Lot of unique stuff and fun facts. There's something for everyone. Take the time and walk through and read through all the fun facts.. Some are unbelievable and entertaining. Compare to some of the other Ripley's, this one is a bit smaller with less stuff but nonetheless still good. This is a nice spot next to the Alamo so you can easily spend a day here

    Fun for the whole family! Running out of ideas for family fun? Go to ripley's! I recommend doing both the believe it or not and the wax museum, its only a few dollars more to do both per person. It can pass you much time if you take the time to read and enjoy each exhibit.

    It was a great experience. My kids loves It! There were lots of things to see and interact with. Love a business that provides a military discount to support the troops and families. For photography, the lighting on pictures is bad but can be fixed with editing programs. I was able to get lots of great shots of the family!

    It blew our minds away seeing and knowing different facts from around the world .. it was good... My wife and I also enjoyed their bridge walk with the spinning hall , music and lights so much... It was so good , we walked down the hall 4 times....

    My husband and I were considering going here while on vacation last week. However, due to their aggressive saleswoman's actions, we decided not to go and will never attend this location in the future. We had just gone to see the Alamo & decided to ask the man at the counter at Ripley's how much it cost to go inside. He was nice & polite as he explained the packages & pricing. My husband & I decided not to go in right then, that we might go back before our trip was over, then thanked the man and left. A very pushy saleswoman chased us up the block, grabbed me by the arm, and asked why didn't we go in? It completely freaked me out, I don't like pushy people up in my face, she totally disregarded my personal space and I truly DID NOT appreciate it!! My husband had to tell her TWICE that we were not interested in going in at this time, then just walked away, in order for her to leave us alone. I have anxiety issues and I was very distressed that somebody would come and grab me by the arm like that. Not happy at all. *IF* we ever decide to go, we will not be going back to that location, and I will not recommend it to anyone either.

Where to stay in San Antonio

To be at the heart of San Antonio's buzzing atmosphere and attractions, stay along the city's River Walk. Lined with hotels of all levels, the area is known for excellent dining and nightlife, and is close to all of the city's main sights. While this area tends to be pricier than other neighborhoods, it is the best option for those traveling without a car who want to take full advantage of their vacation time in San Antonio. For a more rustic experience, venture outside of the city limits to stay at one of the old-world guest ranches that dot the beautiful countryside.
