"It was ok"

My grandson wanted to go for his birthday, i surprised him with tickets. He loved it! As far as for me...It was just ok. The price could've been cheaper for the venue.

"Oddities galore"
September, 2018
This was my families first time to the odditorium, although I visited a few times 30+ years ago. It's been around a looong time! There are so many cool things to see. There's quite a bit of reading to do to get the whole experience, and that might not be too easy for kids say younger than 10. It's good that you go at your own pace so you can spend half an hour if you want or 3 hours if you want. It's definitely a cool thing to do while in Myrtle.

Tip: You can take pictures. Good for older kids 10 and up if you want them to read.

"Not Impressed"
September, 2018
Luckily we were able to get discounted tickets from the Reserve Myrtle Beach site. It saved us $40. But, overall there's nothing new here at Ripley's. It's the same as the other Ripleys. We spent $55 for a family of 5 and were out of there in 40 minutes.

Tip: Don't plan on spending a lot of time here.

"Ripleys"
May, 2018
First of all , super convenient to purchase tickets o Reserve - thanks!! We decided at the last minute to check out Ripleys - and I was a hero for instant tickets. The place is interesting, curious. Ok for the price - lots of “replicas of”. Decent for the price. The building seems very old and smelled funny, but the staff members we came into contact with were great- friendly and helpful. It was estimated to take 45 min, depending on how busy they are and how quickly you move through the rooms.

Tip: Parking on the street tough- if you don’t get something close , you may have to walk a bit. Bring a debit/credit card for the meter( or change of course)

This was a very interesting venue that lives up to other locations we have visited. What took us by surprise was the 50% military discount offered. I don't think we would have stopped without it. It was fun to see and enjoy.

"A little small and disappointing"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed March 19, 2019 NEW
The kids (12 and 14) enjoyed it but it was much smaller then we expected and took less that an hour (including 15 minutes on the dance floor). Look for coupons - it's worth the trip if you can get it in a package deal. The area is fun, lots of shopping and resturants.

"Lots of hands on activities "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 12, 2019 NEW
We really enjoyed our visit. Kids had a great time. There are a lot of hands on activities to keep them interested all throughout the building. Worth the money and the time! The guy at the front desk was super helpful and I recommend getting the aquarium ticket combo. Both were a lot of fun.

There was some creepy stuff on display, but for the most part, it was really cool! And since it's hard for me to go up, and down stairs, I liked the fact they have an elevator!!
