We only did the mirror maze, which was a lot of fun. The lighting was cool and it took awhile to figure out the way around the maze. The admission price is high.

This is one of those places you should visit once just to see some craziness. We laughed at parts & were grossed out at others. an enjoyable way to spend a morning. The 4d film was a waste of time. the maze of mirrors was fun

Visiting here was a great experience as there is something that is appealing to everyone from childhood on up. Definitely something a tourist with young people should experience.

Surprisingly nice compared to other I have visited 3 different attractions usual museum part, 4D attraction which was fun, and mirror maze had a coupon for it but even if i did not would be worth the admission 26 per person.

We have a 3 yr old who loves Transformers! We went there to see Bumblebee and go through the attraction. I don't remember things being so jumpy and spontaneous in the ones I've visited before. Our child was scared and afraid to walk through without holding a hand. There are lots of human figures, things that move, and blowing wind.... More

I had some time to kill. I did not know what to do. I remembered this place, and I decided to give it a try. It was interesting seeing all of the facts about the things Ripley discovered, and I got to learn about Ripley himself. Everything was very interesting although I do not know how true some of the...

Ripley's always hosts a huge selection of different attractions and this one is no different than the rest. It has a wide variety of interesting items to look at and the piano stairs are super fun. I also liked being able to "walk the high wire".
