Fun place

This is a fun place to visit. The moving theater is fun, there's a mirror maze that's a little challenging, and plenty to check out in the museum.

If you are looking for a place to kill a little time, this is for you. It is filled with interesting, if odd, exhibits, just as you expect from the name of the place. I was most impressed with the space dedicated to the Hogwarts building made of matches. Quite well done. I wouldn't visit again, but I enjoyed it... More

There are lots to see at Ripley's. A T-Rex made out of Pop-Tart wrappers and Hogwarts made out of matchsticks are two that come to mind. There are plenty of creative and weird things to see here. The 4D theater was neat and not too long and the maze was surprisingly challenging.

So many things to see and explore. Buying the 3-way combo ticket was perfect. The Moving Movie was such fun and the Mirror Maze was perfect.

This attraction had a wide variety of unusual items. There are paintings made from grease, statues of various people and even a replica of Hogwarts made from match sticks. Inside are other attractions you can purchase separately. The moving theater is fun for toddlers on up. They also have was hand statues you can make and a mirror maze. Recommend... More

We had a great time getting lost in the Mirror Maze, and enjoyed the theater and museum as well. We spent about 2 hours walking through the whole place, and the staff even allowed us to stay 20 minutes past closing time so we could finish the experience. If we had that much fun, I'm sure kids of all ages... More

Used the "FREE" CharmCity busses to see the Fort McHenry and the Famous Lexington Market. Also visited the Light Street Market and Johns Hopkins Hospital. Wonderful

Had an awesome time here with my wife. We spent about an hour and really enjoyed it. I only got the odditorium which is the main museum, but I regret not getting the mirror maze which looks like it would have been fun. All in all, you will not regret coming here, especially in a cold day where there is... More

This was a great way to spend a couple of hours in the winter - weird, bizarre and fun exhibits! Had a great time with the add on mirror maze - look for coupons or Groupon though because could be pricey without one!!
