My granddaughter (8) loved it and found it very interactive. She especially loved sitting outside listening to the music at the entrance. Would like to know what those songs are.

I visited Ripleys as a 23 year old adult with my partner on our mid week getaway. I had been to Ripleys a few years ago but couldn't remember a lot about it... that was until I got inside.

There are many weird and wonderful things to see! And I believe the interactive features are a new thing (since I went last), to make it more exciting for the young and the old. But... I will warn that some of the rooms/ exhibits could be scary to young kids (I was even feeling queezy after seeing the shrunken heads and skeletons/ bones).

I liked the tunnel but my partner felt sick after walking through it, so beware if you get dizzy easy, or don't like feeling uneasy or unsteady on your feet.

Allow at least 1.5 hours to read everything.

I wouldn't recommend it to my friends. Not with young children. Our kids are aged 2,4,7 &8. They were too young to care about the history of this place. For 3kids, 2 adults it cost $75! We were there prob half hour. Some interesting things but scary for young kids. No stroller access we had to carry it downstairs, bit annoying. Worlds tallest man was best part.

Really enjoyed it here and you can easily spend hours looking and reading about all of the interesting Believe it Or Nots. I enjoyed taking heaps of photos with the different characters such as the worlds tallest man. If you were a fan of the show you will definitely love this place!
