My husband is filled with random facts and knowledge. He likes spitting out random things that make me stop and go, “why do you even know that?” So going to Ripley’s Believe It or Not was fun because he got to fill his head with even more strange facts and oddities. We have never visited a Ripley’s before so we were excited to see what was in store. When you first get to Ripley’s you’ll notice that it looks like half the building has sunken into the ground almost like a sinkhole. There is even a fountain outside that looks like a broken pipe. It’s quite funny to drive by it and wonder. When you go in though everything is right side up and level so no need to worry about any motion sickness walking around.
Ripley’s is all about strange things or oddities so it’s called the ouditorium. It holds hundreds of artifacts, unusual art and exhibits that will make you stop and read the full story and say wow! One of my favorite things in the building were all of the mazing art pieces. They were made of strange things like dryer lint, bread, Legos, shells keyboard keys and carved out of phone books. I can’t even make a stick figure look good!
You’ll also get to see strange animals. Ones with two heads, multiple legs and even a real shrunken head. My kids didn’t know what to think about them. They thought it was all fake. Older kids will especially like Ripley’s. But my younger ones liked seeing all the cool things. Especially the hands on exhibits. They were able to spend more time doing those and learning some interesting things while exploring. Ripley’s Believe it or Not is located at 8201 International Drive, Orlando, FL 32819. Ripley’s hosted our family but opinions are my own.
