More than a Museum—An Experience
At Ripley’s, you can experience unique attractions designed to test your sense of space and gravity. The Spinning Vortex, for instance, lures you through a tunnel of lights that swirl from floor to ceiling all around you creating a feeling of loosing your balance. Don’t worry, though, the handle bars along the path will help you get a grip. Visitors leave feeling like they’ve been inside a twister! The LaseRace gives you the opportunity to test your agility in a high-intensity simulation of a web of laser beams. See if you can beat your friend’s score by racing through the beams of light without crossing one. Slip over and under as if you were a highly trained thief to see how well you do in this fun, yet complicated attraction.
Gaze at a Large Collection of Superbly Strange Items
Imagine a robot constructed from scrap metal or old car parts, then come to this crazy museum in NYC to see how that would actually look. Ripley’s Believe it or Not! invites guests to peruse larger than life art made from unusual materials and wonky artifacts from around the world. Gaze up at the white face of an albino giraffe or into the shriveled face of South American shrunken heads. Peer at a decorated, engraved Tibetan skull and be fascinated at the myriad heads on display. Many of the amazing items were originally collected by the museum’s namesake, Robert Ripley. Ripley was famous for his newspaper series, radio show, and TV show dedicated to featuring unusual facts and articles from around the world. He traveled all over and pleased his audiences with exotic tales from foreign lands.
