  • A fun and interesting time! Curios and quirks from around the world, and many interactive displays. Plenty of activities for the younger members of your group, and all breakables or dangerous items are secured. Bypasses for the laser quest and nausea-inducing spinning tunnel were appreciated by the elderly members of our group, but the kids loved them! All in all something interesting for all and opportunities for some weird and wonderful photos abound. Be it a human achievement, practice, craft, or appearance, you'll find something interesting here.
  • Wonderful! Surfers needs more places like this, good fun for people of all ages. Really enjoyed how interactive some of the exhibits were, and the ones that weren't were still exciting in their own ways. I got a little annoyed at how obnoxious some of the kids were, but you shouldn't really go to something like this without forgiving all the overstimulated little kids bouncing off the walls. Props to all the parents who were doing their best to keep them under control.
  • This was a bit of fun, plenty to take in and some interactive parts. It isn't scary but kids will be thrilled and there is more than enough strange things to look at. It takes about 30 minutes to an hour to complete depending on if you are planning on stopping and reading all the information. One of the highlights is the stairway in!
  • Have been here multiple times over many years and it is always fun. Plenty of weird and wonderful things, informative and interactive. Fun for all ages
  • A lot of stuff I didn't believe - but I guess that's the point! A lot of wax figures. Cool illusions. Musical stairs and the lazer room were pretty awesome. For the price, it was pretty good.
