Escape the ordinary and explore all things bizarre at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square in NYC, the largest Ripley’s attraction in North America.

Each exhibit is more unusual than the last. Ripley’s Odditorium showcases mind-bending mysteries, an extensive collection of rare artifacts, thrilling interactive exhibits, and lots of stranger-than-fiction fun.

Walk through a showcase of unusual art, browse incredible artifacts and treasures (some of which were collected by Robert Ripley himself), snap photos with animals that have rare naturally occurring characteristics (including an albino giraffe!), a large collection of authentic shrinking heads, and more.

Ripley's Exhibition highlights include:

The Little Apple: Explore all the lights, glamour, and sounds of NYC.

The Impossible LaseRace: Navigate a maze of lasers as quickly as possible.

The Spinning Vortex: Pass through a spinning vortex (if you can) that warps time and space.

And many more…

Learn all about Robert Ripley’s strange fascinations and the Grotesque artistic and literary movement that focuses on the distorted, weird, and supernatural elements of life that are at once both fascinating and disgusting or bizarre.

Fun Way to Pass an Hour or Two
By BornNewYorker Verified Reviewer from Bowling Green, KY on
Bottom Line:
Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Comments about Smart Destinations Ripleys Believe it or Not! Odditorium:

Maybe you have to be a bit odd to enjoy this kind of thing. If that's the case, call me strange; I don't care because I find it FUN! Truth be told, you really aren't going to find anything that is hard to "believe". Much of it is shown on the history channel and places like that. I could have done with less of the shrinking heads, but the black hole tunnel was a big hit with everyone in our group. Definitely an interesting way to pass a couple of hours. I wouldn't call it the highlight of our trip, but it was entertaining.
