i was very put off by both the prices (very expensive for what you see) and the fact that there probably should be a disclaimer for young children -- cut off heads in photos and many things that are quite disturbing. definitely not worth the price we paid to get in.

I've been to a few Ripley's museums and they are always fun. There are lots of interesting exhibits to see. My husband and I also went through the Mirror Maze which was also fun to do. I think Ripley's is a must do while in OC.

Visited with family of 5 - 2 adults 1 Senior 2 kids 11 and 6. A great value of the amount of interesting exhibits and really cool stuff for kids and adults to see. I think some exhibits are a bit much for young kids but overall very family friendly and felt like was a good deal

It was ok wouldn't go in there again. Kinda pricey, the best part was the mirror maze you can add on.

It's your typical tourist attraction. Great to do when it's raining outside and you can't enjoy the beach or the boardwalk.
