A little pricey but OK.

It's great for kids, but I did like the mirror maze and the "bike" ride. Some interesting things. Overall an OK visit, mostly for kids.

This was such a fun place to go. It's a good combo ticket with Wonder works across the street. It's not as interactive but the moving theater was so much fun. You get to see a show and attack the giant bugs with guns. It's a jerky ride so be prepared. The other area is all of Ripleys artifacts. There... More

This place was a good place for the whole family. Lots to read and see. Lots of fun interactive features too. It's a bit overpriced and we didn't like how they do the pricing. All in all, I highly recommend the odditorium. We didn't really care for the 7D theater The mirror maze was fun. We did not do the... More

It was interesting but somewhat boring for our grand kids. We love the look of the outside. There was so much to look at.

Staff was amazing. The young lady at the counter was awesome. She noticed my USAA card and asked if I was military and gave me a discount. ( I wish I could remember her name) she was joking around and explaining where everything was and what her recommendations were. We took them and had a blast.

Not cheap and not super expensive. Very interesting collection of oddities, different from the San Antonio location that we've been to before. Cool 7d theatre where you get to shoot things with the lasers. Cool mirror maze, buy the glasses! Play the laser maze too!
