While the rain was blowing sideways we decided to go do something we hadn't done before. It was a fun time and a great way to kill time. Fun info to learn but would be better and more fun for kids.

We bought the three-attraction pass which seemed like a good deal. It will save you quite a bit of money if you want to see all three exhibits. We visited Ripley’s first. It is certainly interesting, but two members of our foursome found it to...More

Enjoyed Ripley’s. A lot of fun facts. Located close to the wax museum and undersea gardens which made seeing all of them very convenient. Also there were sea lions basically right across the street so they were seen and heard up close and personal.

Bought a groupon so went ahead. Good for little kids. I enjoyed the pics of Taylor Swift & Michael Jackson made out of chewing gum.

Well, I wanted to go and I went. It was pretty cheesy, but then I guess I knew it would be before I went. It was an OK way to spend about 20 minutes. Perhaps kids would like it better? There wasn't a lot to...More

We are sure this would be fun for first time visitors. We thought there may be some new items and went again, with about 7 years in between visits, but nothing really new.
