Ripley’s San Antonio sits in the heart of downtown directly across from the Alamo. With three major attractions Ripley’s Believe It or Not! OdditoriumLouis Tussaud’s Waxworks and the 4D Moving Theater. Yes, moving theater!  As in sit tight and be ready to enjoy the ride, because you will be moving! The kids are almost out of school for holiday vacations, you will have family in town and there will be that question of “what do we do now?”.  We made a day of taking the family downtown in San Antonio, TX and even invited the grandparents to tag along.  Seven of us ranging from 3 years old to 56 went to Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in San Antonio, TX  to check out  everything odd, weird, and unbelievable. I can tell you first hand, that taking your family on a Ripley’s adventure is a must do in the Alamo city. 

believe it or not

We spent the afternoon completely fascinated by Ripley’s Believe It Or Not. Can you get your bottom lip to cover your nose?  Believe it or not J.T. Saylors could! A replica of Mr. Saylors AKA Rubber Face can be found in the Ripley’s odditorium.  How about a Rhino made strictly out of toys or let your family become part of the action. It’s so much fun to become part of the actual museum and catch unsuspecting family members off guard as they check out an exhibit that you just happen to be a part of.

All of the Ripley’s adventures are next door to each other, making it easy to venture down to the next space.  We made our way to Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks where we visited over 200 life like celebrities and public figures.

From movie stars like Jason Statham to Rapunzel and the Old woman who lived in a shoe replicas. You will find yourself in another world of make believe. If you’re brave enough take a peek into the horror section like we did.  It’s a creepy walk through time of your favorite horror movies and creepy characters. Our three year old even dared to make the trip, with grandpa carrying him through of course. If your a fan a thrillers and horror flicks you will LOVE this section.

How could I not take advantage of a photo in the Oprah chair. We then made our way to the next attraction the Ripley’s Moving Theatre in San Antonio, TX . We weren’t sure what to expect, but we put on our glasses and anticipated the exciting ride.

The digital effects and motions seats will make you bump, dip and shake your way through two movies; Rats Race and Winter Wipeout.  These are adventure rides that will make you feel like a part of the movies. From snow, wind, to being sprayed by a spray bottle in the face, you will feel like you just stepped into the show. I have to say the Ripley’s Moving Theatre turned out to be our very favorite part of our Ripley’s San Antonio, Texas experience.

The entire three combo Ripley’s experience will leave you talking about it for days. It’s truly been our favorite family adventure to date.  Get more information and purchase Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in San Antonio, TX Tickets
