Ripley's Believe It or Not! Times Square opens the doors of its Odditorium to engage curious minds with 20 galleries and two floors of interactive exhibits, featuring more than 500 rarities and relics culled from the explorations of Robert Ripley. Wide-eyed guests take the lead on a self-guided tour through Ripley’s myriad discoveries, which grants the opportunity to marvel at a six-legged cow, salute a section of the Berlin Wall, or play a round of hands-off duck–duck–goose with a gallery of 24 authentic shrunken heads. Afterward, gear up for impending jewel heists by swiftly dodging the LaseRace's matrix of neon beams. A sensational series of sideshow acts perform weekly and boast an eye-boggling array of performers that include a human blockhead, sword swallowers, and businessmen on scooters.
Guests can take home their own slice of souvenir surrealism at The Odd Shop. The shop’s epic selection of gifts includes sharks in jars and insect candies, ideal party favors for your office's next "uniquely packaged dead animals"–themed get-together.
Though Ripley's Believe It or Not! sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Ripley's Believe It or Not! Times Square
Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square winds visitors through twisted halls housing more than 500 artifacts of whimsy, amazement, curiosity, and intrigue. Along self-guided tours of the Odditorium, groups of awestruck wanderers gaze upon a two-headed cow, an albino giraffe, and the skeleton of a giant crocodile while perusing more than 20 themed galleries. Pickled heads stare out of jars and medieval torture devices such as dot-matrix printers hang from the ceiling while an authentic hunk of the Berlin wall stands in remembrance of the time it got to meet David Hasselhoff. Among the more than one dozen new artifacts are a portrait of Lady Gaga made out of crayons, a World Trade Center memorial made from more than 47,000 matchsticks, the fastest walking tour of NYC, and a newly designed Babe Ruth theatre with plenty of sports memorabilia.
Outside, beneath the marquee, guests witness the antics of performers swallowing swords, breathing fire, and pushing the limits of the human body. Back inside, guests navigate Ripley’s laser maze, contorting and slithering through a room crisscrossed with green lasers. The playhouse of eccentricities—a birthday-party hot spot—and its Odd Shop stock enough insect candy and one-eyed stuffed canines to feed a pet clown for months.
