My hubby and me had great fun here, even through it's aimed at kids, we let the kid in us out and had a right giggle Take your time as you walk round as you could miss things

We visited Ripleys because there was torrential rain, and we wanted to dry off. We used our New York City Explorer pass. It wasn't really my thing. But we still had a giggle. We had an hour or so walking round at our own leisure....More

Hmm, someone gave me a free pass, otherwise I would not have bothered. With the internet and being able to see most things online, this is very dated. Sort of like being at a country exhibition. Nothing new to see. Wouldn't buy a ticket for...More

Like all the others Ripley's. Expected to see some varieties from one to others, seems that's not the case. Don't worth the 65 bucks spent.

Don't get me wrong, there are some interesting and unique oddities in Ripley's--I just cannot justify paying $100.00 for 3 people. You can be in and out in less than an hour and I realize things cost more in the city BUT still not worth...More

Don't waste your time here. New York has so much to offer, get off Times Square and go explore. It is a complete tourist trap.

We should have gone to Madame Tussauds. We didn't and quickly realised our mistake. We made the most of it taking some cheesy photos. At the end you have to walk through a stupid tunnel that makes you feel like you're spinning around. I freaked...More

We visited Ripley's in New York 42nd Street. It's a fun museum and we really enjoyed ourselves. I liked the push botton in the restroom ladies :). Push for a surprise!

In the center of London, this unique five stories museum was a cool refreshment. Very unordinary exhibits - some are terrific some are amazing. Price is a bit high - but overall experience was good.
