What You'll Get
Whether you believe in it or not, gravity makes tides turn, rain fall, and senators filibuster. Add whimsy to your wariness with today's Groupon: for $14, you get a single adult admission to Ripley's Believe It or Not! Times Square (a $29.34 value, including tax).
Ripley's Believe It or Not! Times Square opens the doors of its Odditorium to showcase nearly 18,000 square feet of galleries and interactive exhibits, featuring more than 500 rarities, relics, and record-setters culled from the explorations of Robert Ripley. During your tour, play hands-off duck, duck, goose with a gallery of 24 authentic shrunken heads, ponder the plight of the six-legged cow's tailor, or encounter the life-size albino giraffe from your recent dream-quest. Historical artifacts include a piece of the Berlin Wall and a collection of genuine Olympic torches, and iconic Americana items include Babe Ruth's jersey and a lock of Elvis Presley's hair.
Guests can take home their own slice of souvenir surrealism at The Odd Shop, including sharks in jars and insect candies, ideal party favors for your office's next "uniquely packaged dead animals"-themed get-together.
- …you will have been amazed at many things, and perhaps even cry aloud a few times, asserting how much easier it would be to choose the second alternative in this franchise’s title than the first.

- Did I mention it has secret bookshelf doors? I mean come ON! How cool is THAT? – Shawn A., Yelp

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.
