Very plain candy store and very expensive. $3 for 1/4 pound (candy gets heavy quick!).
Good if you have a specific candy you only want, but otherwise stick to getting it at the grocery store.

I paid $17 for just over a pound of candy (which is less then it sounds). It was also smaller then I expected and the sour gummy candies were all hard.

You enter the mirror maze though a candy store with lots of different candy. While we were there, if you bought a pound of candy, you got a free stuffed animal. Since we had our 3 year old with us.....we bought the stuffed animal!

We stopped at Ripley's Candy Factory because it looked SO awesome from the Parkway!
I told my daughter she could fill 1/4 of a bag. We ended up with 1/2 a pound. The price was $2.99 for a 1/4 of a pound, not a great bargain but we got to pick and choose.
After I paid I seen a plush penguin that said if you bought a whole pound he was free. I wish I would have noticed him earlier. Also after I paid my receipt says to ask about their promo bags and get 20% off. Unfortunately none of these offers were known by me until I had paid :(
