Thank you for visiting Ripley's. Hopefully you were able to find the secret passages and explore our 3rd floor. Along with finding the symbols in the temple of discovery to unlock more artifacts.

The exhibit was neat to look at, but you pay $15+tax per head to walk through, which MAYBE takes 10-15 minutes. There wasn't anything that WOWED me. All of it was basic stuff you see watching the show or looking at in a book (personally,...More

Kinda cheesy. I expected a little more. Got in free due to buying tickets to wizard quest. Glad I didn't buy tickets as I would've been disappointed. Lot of reading. All replicas. Kids weren't really impressed either.More

We found this place to be very antiquated. Not sure they have upgraded or added to it for quite some time. Did not feel it was worth the price of admission.

We went to Ripleys and it had some new exhibits as well as old favorites. I especially liked the hidden room behind the fireplace and the hidden compartments in the last room.

it is a self-guided tour, so it is up to you! We have had guests go through in 20 minutes (not recommended) and others stay up to 2 hours. :)
