London's Ripleys may be larger but it isn't as interesting. This attraction is fascinating and you could spend many hours reading and exploring. The interactive parts of the attraction are a great addition especially for children. I wish we could have tried the lazer room...More

The Ripley’s Believe It Or Not is located right in the middle of Surfers Paradise and is very easy to find. The tickets are really expensive and I don’t think it’s worth the amount we paid. However, some of the exhibits inside were very interesting...More

Just around 1 hour to go through all the things but fun for kids. My son enjoyed the gallery, ancient swords etc. Not a must do in my opinion but perhaps better than some other activity around the Surfers Paradise area.

It is a very interesting attraction, lots to see & do so don't rush through. Take time to stop & read the many facts. However it can be expensive so always look for the discount coupons...I personally would never pay full price.

Occasionally Groupon has very good deals on this. I purchased it through Groupon the last time and it was definitely worth it .

Yes, we have an elevator especially for wheelchair access, and the attraction is flat all the way through. Our friendly staff will take you to the elevator and into the show.
