Description

from Ripley's Believe It or Not! Orlando Odditorium
The Orlando Odditorium appears to be sinking into one of Florida's infamous sinkholes. For over 40 years Robert Ripley, the modern Marco Polo and the real-life Indiana Jones, traveled the world collecting the unbelievable, the inexplicable and the one-of-a-kind. All of it is amazing and much of it extremely amusing. His collection is housed in over 27 museums in 10 countries. Each museum's collection is 90% unique and different. As Ripley's ghost says ..."Come in... look around... and see if you Believe It or Not!"

"Ripley's Believe It Or Not"
June, 2016
So hard to please a 12 year old and he really enjoyed the visit! His mother and grandmother had a great time also. We were silly at times and yet we really looked at everything. It was especially fun to see a statue of Robert Wadlow, the tallest man, since he is from my home town.

Never been to a Ripleys before. Very pleasant and helpful guy at reception. Went in on a whim as we were going past, if you book your tickets elsewhere its a couple dollars cheaper. Saw some weird and wonderful things. It was a lot of fun for all ages ..... and educational!!

We went as a family. There were a few “ oh cool “ moments, but I personally think is a tourist trap. You have to search for online coupons, and hope they apply at check out ( mine did not $ extra 20 wasted). I was expecting something different- again it’s not bad just not worth the$$ in my opinion.
