Probably the best attraction on the strip. A lot to see and interact with for adults and kids. It was a rainy day and we spent over an hour inside but could have spent more time. So much to look at and read. The kids learned something and so did I. It is a must see and good value as a standalone attraction or with the pass.
A great spot for the fun of it,
The tallest, the longest, the oldest, etc...if you're a fan of the show, then this is certainly the spot for you!
You can spend a very long time at this place, as there are so many things to see and learn about, make the best out of it, read tags, learn about history and new fun facts.
First I wanted to say this place isnt cheap, $20-30 pp (kids 5 up need to pay). However, if you have curious kids and patience you can turn it into an 1-1:30 h visit which is a not so bad value for money.
There are several room, some are more interactive and close to the end there is a type of a game room with many attractions which my kids loved. I don't know if all the exhibits are real (some reallfelt like fakes) but the kids had a great time and this is one of the better attractions on the Niagra strip.
This place was pretty overpriced and unfortunately wasn't that enjoyable. Its around 19-20usd a person. Maybe 15-20 min worth of entertainment. It's kind of like a children's science museum plus some wax figures. I wouldn't come here, but reading other reviews of other places in the area, it might be the best attraction around.
So I was harsh on the Guiness Book of World Records joke of a "museum," and I stand by that. At least with Ripley's, there are actual displays and items from the bizarre, the unusual, the weird items from across the globe.
Thus was not my favorite Ripley's, but it was still really cool to visit in Niagara Falls. I also find it funny how it's in Canada and not on the United States side of the falls.
The Ripley's here is clean, fairly large, and the staff members were helpful. And for God sakes, just don't bother with Guinness.
I seriously love the Ripley's museums - I've been to quite a few but this one at Niagara Falls was especially fun. My mom and I came here for while visiting the area and you just learn so many fun and interesting things. The museum is very interactive with "games" and activities throughout. There's so many that I don't think you need to necessarily go to every single one in every city, but it's definitely worth going to a new one every so often. This one has a lot to offer and can entertain you for probably 1-3 hours depending on how much you want to read and experience.

Honestly, once you have been here, nothing really changes. However, we all come so we can enter the Vortex Tunnel. We get the biggest kick out of it and we go back and forth through it for several minutes till we can no longer stand straight. LOL Worth the visit, even for us silly adults!! :)9/23/2017Previous review
We were in a group of 4 adults and this was our first visit to a Ripley's Odditorium and I have to say it was pretty fun & interesting. It took us about an hour to explore and we came later in the evening so we pretty much had the entire place to ourselves. We enjoyed checking out all of the odd exhibits and we especial loved the vortex tunnel, the group of us were laughing uncontrollably and actually went through it several times!! The only thing negative about this particular visit was some of the interactive exhibits were not working and I wished they had hand sanitizer to wash your hands at the end.
It's been quite a while since I visited one of these places, so I decided to check this particular "Ripley's Believe it or Not" out recently. Even though I'm not a kid any more, I had lots of fun!
I'm not sure why some other reviewers think this place isn't worth what it costs; the price ($18.99 for an adult) seemed quite reasonable to me, and I found that many of the illusions were intriguing enough to bring out the kid in me :-)
Ripley's is loud, gaudy, hokey, and more than a few of the exhibits are probably fake, but I for one found it very entertaining, and totally worth the price of admission. There's are enough things to read, see, do, and enjoy here to keep people of any age amused for several hours.
While I don't see myself coming back again right away, after a few years I'm sure it'll be fun to visit again.
we had one day in niagara falls to round off our East coast family vacation...
we booked one of those package deals to multiple excursions...then decided to walk back to the hotel (instead of using our included bus pass). we walked up the street and it was packed full of freak shows, haunted houses, guiness book and ripley's. I would consider taking my kids to a couple of these if (a) i had a coupon and (b) we had a 2nd day here. That wasn't the case...but when i saw that Ripley's does Wax hands...how could i resist?!?!
kids each got a wax hand done...it wasn't cheap...basic price is white only...upcharge for color (duh we're gonna do color) and upcharge to fill the was hand (otherwise it's like a wax glove) and of course we had to do that otherwise it would be crushed and a waste of time to do it in the first place.
$10 for hollow white
$16.50 for solid white
$2.50 for color
oh and it's Canadian prices...so i guess $19 is about $15 in US dollars
so yup...it wasn't cheap..but my kids have a mold of their hands to keep forever..and they loved the experience itself too!
Such a fun experience! This museum is reasonably priced with a $3 off coupon from a pamphlet we got when we parked at Clifton Hill. The staff was super helpful and friendly. The museum was a lot larger than I expected it to be! It kept going and going and it definitely takes time to get through if you're reading most of the displays. There's tons of photos ops and interactive displays which are so cool and sometimes make you jump! The vortex tunnel is awesome and so fun. I absolutely recommend it for families, friends or couples!
