The water spray did not work. The length of the show was to short. Prices were a little high to purchase T-Shirts.

"A little pricey for what you get, but it's an experience the kids will remember"

The admission to the Odditorium is quiet pricey, even with the online combo coupon. The 4-D theater show (that lasts less than 15 minutes for 2) was cute, kids enjoyed the laser game and the atomic rush. It's a good thing to do on a rainy day, and the BEST restaurant in Williamsburg is 2 doors down. :) (food for thought) The actual museum itself seems smaller than the other Ripley's I have been in.

What goes on in the 4D Theater?
We have two different shows running in our theater. They alternate every half hour starting one hour after we open. The shows are similar to an amusement park ride, only the chairs do not move so no one gets tossed around. Each show is about 15 minutes long.

The shows themselves are appropriate for all ages, although sometimes small children are scared of the dinosaurs.
