The only place in Gatlinburg where you'll find shrunken heads, a 12ft tall superhero sculpture made of scrap car parts, an authentic vampire killing kit, one-of-a-kind artwork, tons of hands-on interactives, and a wicked spinning vortex tunnel!

We enjoyed the educational aspect of ripleys. There were a few things that gave us the "oh wow" factor. Plus we enjoyed linking our phones and playing the games.

This place has a lot of really neat things in it. My kids were amazed at some of the more crazier things they saw. If recommend going to this place especially if you bundle it with other Ripley things to get a better deal.
