Experience three unique attractions including the authentically unbelievable Ripley's Believe It or Not! Odditorium, the exciting movies that you ride at Ripley's 4D Moving Theater and our larger-than-life Louis Tussaud's WaxWorks. Since 1918, our Believe It or Not Odditoriums have showcased the eclectically bizarre collection of Robert Ripley. We have carried on Ripley's tradition of scouring the globe for the world's most unbelievable exhibits. Authentic shrunken heads, two-headed animals and, a 19th century vampire killing kit only scratches the surface of what's behind the doors of Ripley's San Antonio.

This place was everything it advertised itself to be. It had something’s that freaked me out, only reason I can’t give it full points, but so very cool. Get the triple pass and do the Wax Museum as well. You’ll be glad you did!

Take all the time you need, you can learn a lot and be amazed! Buy the 3 in one ticket and go to all three facilities, their haunted section is really well done, (no spoilers). You can spend hours and just keep walking around!

Fun for all especially the kids. Lots of hands on activities. Loads to look at. Takes about 2 hours if reading along the walls.

Ripley's in every city is fun to go to, but the layout of the San Antonio location makes it so awesome. Great viewing of oddities over the years and I will definitely go back over and over again.

We really loved this. You can buy 1 ticket to view 3 of their facilities (which are all next to each other). The ticket is good for several days so you don't have to do it all at once. Great entertainment for the family!!!!

You can bring a stroller they have elevators at ripley's and They told us you can't get the military discount online when we went, but it was worth waiting for the discount
