Spotlight: Ripley’s Believe It or Not

Check out the most bizarre attraction in town!  Robert Ripley has traveled the world collecting a variety of unusual  artifacts and rare treasures.  This 10,000 square foot attraction appears to be falling into a giant sinkhole from the outside, but inside will amaze you.  There are 16 galleries containing hundreds of fascinating exhibits.  Check out a 1907 Rolls Royce car made from over one million match sticks!  Human oddities such as a human shrunken head, the worlds tallest man, and an Egyptian Mummy.  There are unusual works of art and an interactive illusion gallery.  This attraction is self-guided so it may take you anywhere from ½ hour to a couple of hours to see everything.  Good idea for a rainy afternoon.  So check it out and see if you believe it or not!
