"Yawn"

The 4D Movie is GREAT! But everything inside the "museum" is just so-so. Stuff we've already seen... world record stuff, and few things, but all in all It kind of reminds me of something my grandparents would like to see. Little kids might find it interesting too- but a teen or adults? Just pass. With that being said HOWEVER the staff is AWESOME! They were all so nice and helpful.

"A Wonderful Experience for Family!"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

I've been to a few Ripley's in my day, but this one was absolutely perfect for our family! The museum had some of the most interesting, kid-friendly displays and activities. My nephews are very active, but this museum held their attention for a full two hours! There was also a 4D theater. The experience is totally worth it. The age range in our group was from 8 year old to my mom (50+) and we all had a blast. I will definitely go back again. Excellent experience for the price.

"Way Overpriced"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed January 19, 2016 NEW

We had a rainy cold day and thought this would be a fun time. You can’t just buy a ticket to the museum you have to buy one that includes little kid games and the 4D movie. I guess they are trying to justify their high prices. There were some very interesting things but they were few and far between. Games were a waste of time. Experience made us start calling this Ripley’s rip me off museum.

We enjoyed our visit here, but once you add up all extras, it kind of expensive. Interesting things to see.

"Good Time but not the best one"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed December 15, 2015

We had a good time however this isn't the best Ripley's I have ever been too. It was a little high for how small it is. The one in Gatlinburg and Myrtle Beach are much better than this one.

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.
