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.

We decided to bite the bullet and see Ripleys. It was ok, but I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. It was just a little too hokey.

We recently visited both the wax work museum and Ripleys in San Antonio while on a short trip to Texas. We had a great time in the wax work museum with our two young boys, who were particularly scared in the monster section. Ripley's was...More

They charged me $47.61 for the 3D 10 minute show! This should be Ripoffs Believe It or Not! The show was to kiddie, not good like last year! Don't waist your money here. They might as well put a gun to your head!

We got a package deal to the Odditorium, the Haunted Adventure, and the Tomb Rider 3D while our Airman son was on leave fresh off of graduation from the Academy. The Odditorium was by far the most fun. So many cool exhibits, facts, photo ops,...More

Ripley's is just a place of really weird things. The family had fun but we paid about $60 for the four of us and it took several hours to walk through.

do you offer military discounts for these attractions, if so how much would the prices be?

I'm wanting to bring the family here for our vacation to San Antonio in mid March this year. I am thinking about getting the combo pass for all of us. I saw how I could buy the ticket online. I'm wondreing if there's a way to get the military discount online? Also, will I be able to bring a stroller with a 10 month old? Can we still enjoy everything with a 10 month old?

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
