This is a cool place to explore and see "in person" some of the actual believe it or not items and people.

We had the city pass and went to the river walk. We had an extra ticket and decided to give it a chance. It was a pleasant escape from the chilly outside. Plenty to read and explore. Would recommend.

I would recommend this place over Guinness Book of World Records. This place was very cool and had many world records as well as very interactive. There is a lot to see here but Is very expensive.

The 4d theatre was pretty bad. I can get better 3D on my tv at home. The two movies lasted 10 minutes each and were completely pointless. We were unimpressed.

Hey Sandy, we’re very glad you enjoyed the 4D theatre and the Ripley’s museum. Thank you for the feedback about the wax museum, we will look into adding additional signage to redirect guests to optionally bypass the horror section.

My two older teens and I loved everything about the museum! Well organized, lots of great details and incredible exhibits! Did not expect the quality. Even though it was crowded, we could access and enjoy everything!

It is just a tourist trap place to have some fun watching the kids you take. Once you see one of these you know what you will get. There is funny, gross, and some scary things here, but nothing too bad.
