We spent a couple of hours there on a cloudy day. 2 adults, 3 teenagers - $77, with $2 coupon for each of us. It was interesting, but not the type of attraction that you would return to.

We spent several hours at Ripley's. We started in the mirror maze. My husband didn't really care for it, but I thought it was fun and there were some interesting exhibits. We then went through the rest of the exhibits and they were fun and interesting.

Laser room was lame! Not worth it. If you have those paper 3D glasses at home, take them if you do the mirror maze. They charge you $2.00 per pair. The other 2 attractions were good. You are only allowed 1 7D " movie". That was fun.

We only did the tour of oddities and nothing else. Sort of hokey. Tacky for sure and old! Kids might have fun if you add more of the other attractions that are available but we only did the minimum tour!

Ridley' is always a good stop. My wife and I bought tickets that included the 7D theater and the mirror maze. We had a great time. The mirror maze is awesome. We were able to get senior tickets because I am over 50. So that means BOGO!! Enjoy!!

We experienced a heavy rain day and decided to venture into Ridleys. We arrived at 1:00 pm. Long story short we exited Ripley's at 9:30 pm. What a great time. There was so much to do time flew by. The entrance fee at 1st thought seemed a little pricy, but after fully enjoying the facility, I left felt I got... More

There are some amazing things to see in here. Some are a little corny, but enjoyable. They also have 3D rides to go on as well that were very fun.
