This Groupon also may be used as a credit towards the Extreme Birthday Party Package. Reservations are required one week in advance, and party bookings are subject to availability.
Ripley's Believe It or Not! Times Square opens the doors of its Odditorium to engage somnambulists with 20 galleries and two floors of interactive exhibits, featuring more than 500 rarities, relics, and record setters culled from the explorations of Robert Ripley. Pintsize strange seekers can celebrate their annual age-enhancement among Ripley’s myriad discoveries with up to 12 guests, which includes children and chaperones. Armed with a stealthy shutter clicker, ebullient explorers embark upon a scavenger hunt that tasks them with aiming their lens on a selection of the museum's most eye-fetching exhibits, such as a six-legged cow, a slew of shrunken heads, and the elusory employee break room.
After the scavenger hunt, kids can try their hand at the LaseRace's matrix of neon beams or flee from wolf parents in the museum's enigmatic Black Hole, and the birthday child receives a limited edition Ripley's book.
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 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.
