About Ripley's Believe It or Not
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 Marilyn Monroe collection, including never seen before personal belongings, a life-size steampunk locomotive made of over 1 million matchsticks, the fastest walking tour of NYC, and a newly designed Babe Ruth theater with plenty of sports memorabilia.Back inside, guests navigate Ripley’s laser maze, contorting and slithering through a room crisscrossed with green lasers.
