The exhibition is really interesting and full of weird things. You can find something strange for everyone here. In Surfers Paradise it is close to everything.

Well worth the trip and money. We spent hours wandering around looking at the exhibits and learning about the obscurities of the world.

Thank you so much for visiting and for sharing your review. We believe our ticket price is comparable, even cheaper than most other attractions in Surfers Paradise. As our Odditorium is a self-guided experience, the time it takes varies greatly. Ripley’s itself contains 15 individually...More

My boyfriend and I enjoyed the unbelievably believable facts from the microscopic ornaments to the tallest man. Our favourite part was the laser lights challenge where we feel like characters from the matrix. Would definitely recommend such tour to our friends.

Occasionally Groupon has very good deals on this. I purchased it through Groupon the last time and it was definitely worth it .

Yes, we have an elevator especially for wheelchair access, and the attraction is flat all the way through. Our friendly staff will take you to the elevator and into the show.
