Right in the heart of New York is a collection of some of the most unbelievable mysteries of our world. Ripley's Believe It or Not NYC is home to rare artifacts and thrilling exhibits from around the world. Here, you will get the chance to immerse yourself in the unusual, the unexpected and the unbelievable.
Encounter strange and fascinating exhibits around every corner, with interactive experiences and 20+ themed galleries. You have to see it to believe it! Collections include an authentic 19-foot-tall albino giraffe, the world’s largest collection of shrunken heads, a 19th-century vampire killing kit and much more.
Also present is a thrilling interactive exhibition called the Smash Dash, a race against time as buttons buzz and light up in front of you, awarding points the faster you turn them off, and the Black Hole, a dark, seemingly endless tunnel displaying eerie exhibits throughout! The best of these is Ripley's Relic which you can add on to your entry ticket. Ripley's Relic is a 15 minute, immersive escape room experience, both stimulating and chilling, which is the best way to finish a night at Ripley's Believe it or Not!
