"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!

"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.

This is the worst Ripley’s we’ve ever been too. Nothing is interesting and it’s all just cheaply made replicas. It wasn’t even a good respite from the heat. It was warm in there, the Wife was warm and she is only warm if she’s out in the heat. Wish we had just stayed at the beach.

A bunch of things that are a little interesting but mostly things you’ve already heard of. Something to do but not really worth the price of admission.

Two movies that jostle you around in your seat for about twenty minutes the kids enjoyed it, but I’m not sure it was worth the money. The movies are kid appropriate and not scary at all.

Not my favorite thing to do. Grandkids wanted to go so we went but it was not worth the extra $6 for doing an extra event with the Aquarium. Is what it is I guess.

Reviewed July 18, 2019
I was a big fan of the "Believe it or Not" comic strip back when I was a little kid. So I had a soft spot for this tourist attraction. The place stayed with BIoN's reputation by playing more like a carnival sideshow than a museum. The places puzzles and brainteasers were the most fun moments. Also, since this is BIoN, it had a large display of creepy looking "native" costumes, and shrunken heads. Now here the place felt out of touch with modern sensibilities; I wondered if these artifacts could ever be displayed in the correct cultural contexts. But the rest of the museum was fun. I enjoyed its maze format where you had to keep going up and up (though I don't know if they provide elevators to make the displays handicap accessible.).
