Very cool exhibits and artifacts. We have been to Ripley's museums before and we really enjoyed this one. The gift shop was also nice. It had a wide variety of things to choose from. My only complaint was that it felt a little short.

Escaping from Dallas for an afternoon we passed this place on way to Fort Worth. An interesting looking Vegas type building and we dared each other to stop and go in. We did. It turned out to be great. We got there several hours before listed closing time on door but were informed they would be closing in an hour.... More

This is a great place to spend an afternoon with your family. I loved the wax museum, and so did my 10 year old grandson and 15 year old granddaughter. We spent a long time here as the kids wanted to know all about the figures. It was really a fun, educational experience. The chamber of horrors was fine for... More

This is a great place to visit and we'll worth the wait. We chose to go to this place on our last day in Texas. My daughter loved it. Her favorite attraction was the wax museum, mirror maze and 7D movies.

You can do it all as we did or only one part if you want. The wax museum was the best one I have seen, only disappointment was where they had Talk Show... More

Pleasantly surprised at how much there was to do! Even more pleasantly surprised about the generous military discount given to our family.

Came with my 23 & 4 year olds. They both enjoyed it. The scary maze was too much for the little one, but I enjoyed this exhibit. I think they shouldn't charge for each exhibit separately, it's not that great.

This is one place that the name explains it all,. BELIEVE it or NOT! A lot of history is there to learn, or you can just look and enjoy the craftsmanship of making wax figures look like real people. There is so much to see, and then another part is dedicated to the World famous book: Ripley's Believe It Or... More

Several fun activities you can do with the kids where everyone has a good time. Although some of the wax figures need help in the wax museum (which is the only reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5), We still had great fun getting up close and taking photos with all the "celebs." There just aren't that many... More

My husband and I went with our two granddaughters (ages 12 & 17) today. Each of us had a really fun time! We went through the wax museum, the odditorium, the mirror maze and also had a wild ride in the moving theater, which featured two movies. The person who greeted us and explained how everything worked, Brenda, was fabulous... More
