State of Queensland Tourist Traps: 10 reviews and 8 photos
You have to pass through the fleecing section. Ripley's Believe it or not ensnares the unaware with a penny arcade at the exit..........the Australian Zoo exit is through quite a large shop of souveniers and everywhere we visited adopts this attitude of well we will get your last cent if you don't put your blinkers on and head straight out, after you have seen this wonderful place.
The upside of course is that you have already had more than your money's worth in Ripleys........a fantastic display and experience........even the 2 year old enjoyed it so do go.............(blinkers on on the way out OK?)......The same goes for Seaworld and Australian Zoo...........all fantastic places and must sees in my opinion.
Unique Suggestions: Take photos of your grandchildren enjoying the experience..........LOL.
Fun Alternatives: The only other thing would be to stick a blindfold over your eyes and move quickly out of the last exit. As I said, you've had more than you're money's worth lol.
