Overview

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 bought the ticket to visit three sites and it was worth it. The wax museum, the 4D ride and the Believe it or not museum. All three have their own theme and will keep you entertained. Out of the three, the Believe or not...More

It was just ok. I got tired of reading things. The horror section was the best. Something to do in doors when it is during the summer and very hot. Price was just ok.

Right next to (attached to?) the mirror maze is the Ripleys. Believe it. Or Not. What is really interesting however is their snack bar, especially in the heat of the summer, as you can get away from the insane Texas heat, if even for a...More

Lots to explore. Seemed larger than the Branson Ripley's. There was some repetitious information/exhibits that were at Branson, but we still enjoyed it.

I have to say I have been to two other Ripleys and this one was the most disappointing. Don't think I will be visiting anymore. Was to expensive also.

If you would like to see many things you couldn't ever imagine, then this is the place for you. We laughed, we cringed, our eyes bulged out of our heads. And we'd do it all again. This place is like none other.

We only did the odditorium, so I cannot speak to the other exhibits. The odditorium itself had many exhibits and artifacts, some of which were optical illusions, some interesting facts and some a bit macabre. We moseyed through at a moderate pace and didn't read...More

The Alamo took a lot less time than scheduled. We had plans of visiting the the wax museum, so we added Ripley's as an afterthought. Our kids LOVED it. (Ages 7,8, 11,12). We spent about 3 hours there! Was very impressed on how much the...More

this place is quirky but it IS a Ripleys so you kind of expect it. We were so hot outside so we were looking for some inside fun for a bit. It was a nice break, but I probably wouldn't spend the money to go...More

This museum is full of crazy stuff. Costs about $25 each. Kids laughed at a lot of it. Overall, I think it's too large and expensive for about a one hour experience.
