Overview

Experience three unique attractions including the authentically unbelievable Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium, the exciting movies that you ride at Ripley's 4D Moving Theater and our larger-than-life Louis Tussaud's WaxWorks. Since 1918, our Believe It or Not Odditoriums have showcased the eclectically bizarre collection of Robert Ripley. We have carried on Ripley's tradition of scouring the globe for the world's most unbelievable exhibits. Authentic shrunken heads, two-headed animals and, a 19th century vampire killing kit only scratches the surface of what's behind the doors of Ripley's San Antonio.

Went in to Ripley’s with a group of friends. It was a interesting place to go into. It was kind of like visiting a bizarre type of museum.

We had an awesome time. The tickets featuring 3 attractions was a plus for our family. ( consisting of 2 small children, a teen, and a young adult) “More bang for your buck “-I’ll say! It was a perfect addition to our short stay!❤️❤️❤️

Some things were a little much for me but all in all it is a super interesting place, first Ripleys attraction I have went too! Some of the place was rather falling apart or cheap but the information and set up was pretty cool.

I took the family this past weekend via a triple pass for Ripley's, Louis Tussards wax museum, and the Ripley's 4D theater. For the $70 per attraction and how crowded and tight it was in the different rooms, it was not worth it, and the...More

Well, it's another Ripley's believe it or not location. Nothing off about the location and the part dealing with human punishments in the years bygone is gruesome and really well demonstrated.

Good family experience in a typical tourist town atmosphere. Some very interesting exhibits. The combo ticket is the way to go with the oddity museum, wax museum, and theater.

I got the 3-attraction (Tussaud's wax museum, 4D movie, and Ripley's Odditorium) combo (you save three bucks per admission) and visited with family. I used to watch Ripley's believe-it-or-not TV show with Jack Palance back in the 80s when I was a child, so this...More
