Ive been wanting to go to a Ripleys for ages so was delighted to discover that this one was in Blackpool. Full of quirky facts,exhibits and photos, this place is for people who like the more fun and hands on parts of museums. It also includes a mini cinema screening more Ripley facts from around the world. The only thing I would complain about was the fact that many of the little machins situated around the attraction that you could pop money in to (for example) have your fortune told etc were not working at all yet were more than happy to take your money and not retun it.I found this attraction to be full of interesting items but would have preferred there to not be so many 'replicas' of items but the actua laretfacts themselves.

Visited in August 2010, and my three boys really enjoyed it. Paid £15.00 for 4 of us, and it was quiet in there, being the evening. There are plenty of objects to see and information to read....believe it or not!! Displays from the tallest man in the world to animals with two heads! Took us about 30-40 minutes to walk around, exiting into the gift shop. A good place to pass some time. Recommend.

on our last morning in Blackpool we passed by Ripleys, we were in no hurry and thought we would be there a couple of hours but it took no longer than 25 minutes even though we looked at everything and read everything! ok there are some amusing things but it is very lacking and dated. this is sadly a let down to the name Ripley! overpriced, £8 each
sad to say, skip it!

Its a real shame that when this first opened it was great to go round as a kid., now prices have reduced but they haven't updated the shabby looking exhibits or introduced any new amazing up to date exhibits. Needs a complete re-vamp before i ever intend to go again.
