  • Four adults, a 14 year old, and an 8 year old, and we all thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! We did all of the activities/exhibits there: laser beam race, mirror maze, 7D theater, Ripleys, and the wax...  more »

  • The size of the building is deceiving – it’s much larger than it appears. Admission can get pricey, so we decided to see only two of the exhibits – the odditorium and the wax museum. Ripley’s is interesting, especially if you take the time to read all the displays. The information about Ripley himself, as an illustrator, writer and collector of oddities in very interesting as is a display of a person who spent years trying to dispel Ripley’s collection. My ten-year-old granddaughter liked the display about the red headed explorer and his shrunken head. My thirteen-year-old grandson really liked the wax museum hall of horrors. It was too scary for his sister, though. Super nice staff when my granddaughter lost her ticket to the second attraction. They provided a quick, no-hassle solution with a smile. Great rainy day place – save time for reading. Ask for the senior rate if you qualify. It saves a couple of dollars.
  • It was interesting, but the wax sculptures were hit or miss. About 25% didn't look remotely like who they were supposed to be. The Ripley's part was a bit better. There were some cool things to see and learn. The 7D games were our favorite part, but they were way too short.
