Did the whole tour which was a bargain with a military discount. Museum was interesting and we read every exhibit and enjoyed it all. Mirror maze was very fun and the theatre was also. Very clean and everyone was friendly. The sound effects in the bathroom had everyone laughing. Good time and it was a welcome break from the beach and heat.

Our family visited here on a Friday night. This was my first time in a Ripley's establishment. I found it very interesting and worth the money, however we were there with an 11 year old and it was not quite as interesting for her. There is a lot of reading (of course) with the individual items but a younger child isn't going to take the time to walk through and read everything. There are not very many interactive things to do for kids. While it was worth the money to me, it was most certainly not worth the money for a child.

Thank Ashlea B

There were some interesting parts but I don’t think it’s worth the money. There are better things to do at the beach.

We bought the combo tickets and did the ‘odditorium’ and the mirror maze. The actual odditorium was fun for our kids even with them not being able to read as well. A good bit of it is interactive so they loved it. However, the mirror maze was their favorite. They laughed their way through it. They also made wax hands out front. A lot of fun!
I feel like it was reasonably priced. A good way to spend an afternoon if you need a break from the beach!

We bought the four activity tickets. The price at the counter is the same as online. The 7D moving theater was our family's favorite even though it's short. The mirror maze was a close second and you can do it both ways. The laser maze is somewhat short and confusing. It would benefit from an attendee explaining what to expect though there is information posted. The odditorium was interesting but kind of gross for some of our group. You have to take it with a grain of salt and understand that it's anachronistic. We enjoyed making wax hands and the gift shop prices aren't outrageous. FYI, it's a better value for all of the activities including the wax hands compared to prices at Pier Park. We'd recommend it as a good option for a sun break.
