Ripley's Believe It or Not
A World Leader in Unbelievable Family Entertainment

The phrase “believe it or not”, coined by founder, Robert L. Ripley, is a common and integral part of our conversational language. The worldwide fame of newspaper cartoonist-explorer Robert Ripley and Ripley’s Believe It or Not! have created an audience of curiosity seekers of all ages, reaching across virtually every demographic spectrum. Visiting a Ripley’s attraction has been a part of the family vacation experience since 1933.

Our Odditoriums have plenty of exhibits to choose from; there are over 10,000 exhibits in our warehouse that are presently not being displayed and we are constantly acquiring new unbelievable exhibit items. The Believe It or Not! cartoon also continues to create opportunities for new ideas and exhibits on a daily basis. With over 100,000 cartoons in our database, we can provide our locations with a nearly unlimited source for exhibits that can be depicted using wax figures or other display methods created by Ripley artists.

While other popular attractions rely entirely on reproductions and simulations of objects or events, the exhibitions at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! odditoriums display genuine artifacts from the collection of Robert Ripley acquired throughout his world travels. The subject matter of each odditorium is diverse and each exhibit is explained in enough detail to have the widest possible appeal and accessibility to the public.

There is something for everyone, whether it is a genuine shrunken head from Ecuador, a painting on spider webs, an actual two-headed cow, or a 23-foot model of the Eiffel Tower constructed from 110,000 toothpicks. Young and old alike will definitely find something of interest at Ripley’s.

Ripley’s continues to add new elements to the Believe It or Not! Odditorium experience with new interactive and participatory exhibits and displays. Guests may become involved and experience the exhibits first hand rather than simply being passive observers. In addition to interactive exhibits, guests are drawn in by animation, movement, illusions, video presentations and music that carry them through themed galleries during their visit.
