The weather was terrible while we were in Williamsburg, Va so we were looking for indoor things to do. Ripley's was convenient to our resort and kept us busy for a few hours. The 4D short videos were fun and silly but be prepared to get wet. The amount of items in the museum was astounding. We enjoyed seeing and reading about all the strange things Mr. Ripley discovered. He was an amazing man in his own right. I could have spent more time but the teenagers were ready to go after a few hours.

We weren't sure if Ripleys would be too young for our family but the 4 of us tried it and had a lot of fun!! We got the 4 pack and saw the movies -- we enjoyed the snowmen movie even more than the dinosaurs. The 2 games are fun -- do the hard level on the atomic rush game. The laser game is pretty hard! The odditorium is pretty fun to go through. All in all a fun way to spend an afternoon.

A very fun way to spend a few hours. Many things to see and learn about. The 4D video is cool but would be nice if it were longer.

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.
