    Interesting Place
    Good location. Interesting place to visit. Fun for the whole family. We purchased tickets online and got the 3 way combo for $46.90 normally $78.70. This included entry to Ripley’s, Moving Theatre and Mirror Maze so made it better value for money. Don’t think I would pay to go again but would recommend to others.

    Amazing experience
    We had an absolute blast at Ripley's Belive it or Not in Surfers Paradise tonight. Our host Renae was amazing, explaining the three sections of the exhibition thoroughly. Her positive attitude helped us enjoy the experience and know what to expect. My son found the museum intriguing, the mirror maze challenging and the 7D movie awesome. It was a terrific experience.

    It's Okay
    Family of 4 (2A, 2 teens). We weren't really sure what to expect but overall had a good time. The highlight for us was the Mirror Maze which was really fun and the colours were amazing. We also really enjoyed the 7D Movie. The movie has a few different options of what you watch. We chose a family friendly one which was great. It only goes for a few minutes which we wished had of been longer especially as both the Movie and Maze cost extra. The Gallery itself had a lot of things in it but nothing that really stands out other than the light bridge. Some of the "fun" things that kids could go needed extra money to use which was a shame since the attraction already cost a heap to get in in the first place. Probably worth going to once, but wouldn't be in a hurry to go back.

These is the second time coming here after 15 years and it felt like it had more interaction fun stuff for silly adults. I feel like the enter fee was a bit higher just for one thing. Us there was two other things that were available that they tried too get u too go with in one night.

Cost $98 for a family for the mirror maze and well not worth the money. Very disappointed we wasted this money for our family I wasted day out. We feel very deflated with the kids as we wouldn't usually spend this kind of money and very disappointed

A fun experience for everyone! There are lots of interactive and informative exhibits. We did the Zombie moving theatre experience first which was good fun and then checked out the rest of the exhibits.

Fun for the whole family! Been a few times over the years and it’s good to see some new additions to keep things fresh. Didn’t think the 7D movie would be good, but it was probably the highlight!
