Just around 1 hour to go through all the things but fun for kids. My son enjoyed the gallery, ancient swords etc. Not a must do in my opinion but perhaps better than some other activity around the Surfers Paradise area.

We all enjoyed Ripleys. Great way to spend a couple of hours. Interesting things to look at and plenty of interactive items to keep master 7 engaged.

It is a very interesting attraction, lots to see & do so don't rush through. Take time to stop & read the many facts. However it can be expensive so always look for the discount coupons...I personally would never pay full price.

We liked this activity but thought it was a litter over priced for what it was. Essentially it's like a museum. The fun interactive things helped keep our children (ages between 4-9) occupied.. some bits were a little boring for them

Thank you so much for taking the time to review us! YES! Ripley's is an interactive museum which means there is plenty to learn but also plenty of things to touch, listen and watch as well! Thank you for visiting.

Enjoyed it more than I thought. My toddler wasn’t so sure of some of it but the 4 yr old and 12 yr old loved it.

Interesting facts and trivia from around the world. Illusions and lots of stuff to see and do in there. Great to take kids esp if they can read already.

Occasionally Groupon has very good deals on this. I purchased it through Groupon the last time and it was definitely worth it .

Yes, we have an elevator especially for wheelchair access, and the attraction is flat all the way through. Our friendly staff will take you to the elevator and into the show.
