  • The water spray did not work. The length of the show was to short. Prices were a little high to purchase T-Shirts. 
  • Very interesting thins to see. The little theater was awesome. I took my grandchildren they loved it however, not for the younger children. 
  • The admission to the Odditorium is quiet pricey, even with the online combo coupon. The 4-D theater show (that lasts less than 15 minutes for 2) was cute, kids enjoyed the laser game and the atomic ru...  more »

  • What an amazing place to visit! Such excellent quality in exhibits. The 4-D movie was a little underwhelming, the screen was blurry a little bit and it was a bit hard to follow what was going on. The exhibits are the main attraction, and there are games you can play. The Laser Maze game is really fun and so is the Atomic Rush game.
  • Ripley's Believe it or not was ok. First off when you get there, there is guy outside sitting at a little information area right outside. He tells you about how there is this resort called Westgate that has been renovated recently and how all the rooms are named after dead presidents and how nice the place is etc. Then he continues with they also have timeshares there. He says If you go they pay you to go and then you have to go there for an hour where they show you the resort and then they will ask you if you want to continue. Anyways that was awkward. Not expecting that at Ripleys Believe it or not. The museum was ok. Do not think it is worth $17.00. With the 4d shows its 25. The museum had some cool things in there but most stuff in there were ok. Not mind-blowing. The 4d show was nice. Just wish it was a little longer but it was nice. The water scent, and seat effects were nice. Overall it was ok.
  • My daughter and I had a great time here. The best part is at the end when you have to walk through a "moving tunnel" and it really messes with your balance and equilibrium. It was a blast. Be sure to check out one of the 4-D movies while you're there.
  • Ripley's Believe It or Not in Williamsburg, VA is a fun little tourist stop. We took my 6 year old little sister and she also enjoyed it. There are several interesting things to see that really require a bit of reading to enjoy, so the museum aspect may not really appeal to families with younger children. There are several games and attractions in the museum, though. However, they all cost extra money to participate. It felt pretty scammy in a way, to be honest, but they were never very expensive. We enjoyed the 4-D theater a bit, but it isn't really a great overall experience. It's very short, and every feature is pretty similar in content. Be prepared to get wet. Upon exiting the theater, we were dropped in the candy shop where we were introduced to the most interesting employee the site had to offer. He was a young man that seemed a bit too couped up in that little room. He was nice, but he also seemed like a prisoner. Anyways, there are more fun things you could do in Williamsburg, but Ripley's isn't a bad sideshow on a rainy day.
  • Took my wife here on her birthday. We enjoyed all the displays, although I wish I was a little bigger. The tunnel right before leaving the museum was a lot of fun. The gift shop was well stocked and the price was not bad for admission to the museum. The interactive games were a little dull but we still enjoy the experience
