If you have not been there, then plan this for a day that is hot or cold or wet to be outside. Some things were worth seeing at least once. I liked the "Robots" best.

We breezed through the mirror maze pretty fast but it was still fun and harder than fair mirror mazes. The wax museum was impressive in variety though some of the characters were too skinny or just not quite right. The variety included pop stars, actors, fairy tales, cartoons, presidents, heroes and villains in history, life of Jesus Christ, and a... More

We went to the wax museum. The person at the ticket register said there was a Groupon available which we took advantage of and were very thankful for the suggestion. I have been to only one other wax museum and it was in Hollywood. I would have to say the one in Hollywood had figures that were much more life... More

We went here for the first time and enjoyed our trip. The wax figures and exhibits were great. We tried all of the options and did not really care for the laser room. It was small and not worth it. The 7-D moving theater was the best. All of the figures, mirror maze and exhibits the kids enjoyed.

I used a groupon and it was only good for one exhibit only. When I arrived, there was a young girl standing around the counter. SHe looked straight at me, didn't say a word.

We're sorry to hear that we did not meet your expectations when you visited. The $10 Groupon deal is good for one attraction, and all other attractions can be added here at Ripley's for an additional $5, and $2 for The Impossible Laser Race. You should have been instructed at the ticket counter on how to go about the attractions.... More
