A trip inside Ripley’s Believe It or Not! museum in Orlando is an experience unlike any other. This 10,000-square-foot location actually looks like it’s falling into a sinkhole. And the “Odditorium” features 16 themed galleries with 600 exhibits and artifacts — shrunken heads, an authentic vampire killing kit, a shooting gallery and a wild spinning vortex tunnel.
For anyone who wants to surround themselves with the unusual, the unexpected and the unbelievable, this is the place. See a headless chicken, the original “chicken with its head cut off.” This rooster from Fruita, Colorado survived decapitation and lived for 18 months afterward, traveling the country as curious onlookers paid 25 cents to see him. There’s also the cruel iron maiden, a torture device consisting of an iron cabinet with a hinged front and spike-covered interior and so much more.
Ripley’s Orlando offers guests an unforgettable experience that can only be found here. Exploring the entire museum will take close to two hours.
On the way out, stop at the Cargo Hold Gift Shop — the perfect place to find something for everyone, like Believe It or Not t-shirts, strange collectibles, unusual jewelry, crazy candy, gadgets and toys that will ignite the imagination.
