"So simple!"
April 2019
Having tickets ahead of time was so much easier (and less expensive)! It was exciting, fun, and well worth it. I will use Reserve Direct again!

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.

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.

Reviewed August 02, 2020
I have been to few different Ripley's before and this was the worst one. It was pretty small compared to other ones. There were mostly just things to read and not enough displays. On the upper level was a room with a wooden floor I thought we were gonna fall through. The best room was at the end. I feel like this was over priced and a kind of a ripe off. Would not recommend.

Reviewed July 19, 2020
They had some really interesting things if you have the time to read everything your going by and looking at. I was really surprised they didn't have more than what they did. I was expecting more than what they had. It smelled very old and almost like a wet basement in there, once you got upstairs. The children were definitely bored and ready to go right away. I thought they would find it interesting and cool but not at all! The upstairs floor, going into one of the rooms feels like its going to fall threw at any moment. At first we didn't no if it was meant to be like that but it wasn't. It was shaking the whole stands and their encasings. It shook the whole floor and whatever type of glass they have surrounding the enclosed things. Very scary and def needs fixing before someone falls threw and it a huge problem. The kids did love the dance screen/room at the end though and the spinning bridge area. It was cool, but definitely could be way better
