“Enjoyable”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

My partner & I found some of the things interesting and spent a good hour walking round. For example the "Shrunken Head" exhibition along with video showing how they did it! argh..that was gruesome to say the least..

The price we paid was £4pp due to a discount voucher that we had got. We would not have been happy having paid the full £12pp as we don't deem the attraction worth that amount.

“Good for the right person”
Reviewed 30 September 2013

Ripley's is strange to me (beside the fact of what its about), i went there after my girlfriends brothers family go to Blackpool a lot and go to Ripley's each time it seems as there two kids love it, and it was in fact the two kids that wanted us to go as we all were in Blackpool, we had discount vouchers which got printed off before we came (i recommend anyone thinking of going here does this) which made it £10 for me and my girlfriend and i was willing to pay this for us both but no more after seeing it all. It has some very interesting information and being someone that loves facts it started off very well but as it went on and on it just seemed to be a lot of reading and i noticed i knew a lot of it, my girlfriend isn't a massive fan of facts and only found her interested here and there as we went round. Over all i think its a place for certain people to go or as something to do to fill part of the day, i am glad i went in but wouldn't return every time i went to Blackpool. Worth it at the discounted rate.

Went here September 28th, it's interesting enough in parts, some cool stuff, also some boring stuff though, cost £6 each per adult to get in, we was in there around the 45 min mark

“Nothing has changed for years.”
Reviewed 28 September 2013

I can remember going in here over 10yrs ago and enjoyed it. But it seems nothing has been updated or even moved. Certainly no new attractions. Unless you count the smallest car but you can see this for free in the entrance. We paid £6 which i think is a bit much considering how no money has been spent on it for years. Looking at other Ripleys on youtube this a poor relation but if you have never been in before or don't know about Ripley then its still worth a look.
