Ripley's Believe It Or Not Orlando
Ripley's operates 35 oddity museums worldwide, and the Orlando collection is housed in a Bavarian-style building, deliberately disproportioned to look like part of it has disappeared into one of Florida's infamous sinkholes. Inside are such oddities as a statue of a 1,069-pound man, torture devices from the Spanish Inquisition and a replica of a 1907 Rolls Royce built from more than a million matchsticks.
I thought well this may be different but we had been to the one in TN a few times! However it was exactly the same and nothing new! So if you have been to one you have been to them all!
Don't waste your money
This Place is something to do if your low on cash and your hotel's free stuff has become boring or non-existant. If you enjoy it slightly, you still won't go back. This was a lame recreation of the other Ripley's Believe It or Not's through out the country.
We do not reccomend this place even to our enemies. Everything you will see in there is a collection of things you have received by e-mails. a few collection of optical illusions, a big chair, a big tire and a few mirrors. the only impresive thing is the building from the outside, that's about it, and you don't need to spend money to see the building from the outside. My advice save your money;)
I thought there was a lot of cool things to see, but it was kinda crowded. When I would try to see something and read about it or watch the video, someone would jump infront of me. Mostly little kids would do this. Then you would go to the next exhibit only to find someone standing there forever blocking it. There were a few creepy people in there and the price was a little high, but it beats sitting at home if your from here. It's not fun, if it's crowded, but I can see it being fun if only a few people are walking through at a time. It was full of people that didn't speak English, which amazes me that they would want to go to an american exhibit that was only in English. Plus, they try to charge $2 for a walk through map of the museum. Those are usually free at anything that charges $20 or more for admission. For two people it cost $42.58. The lady in the shop at the end of the exhibit was really nice though and made sure to ask everyone that came through if they enjoyed themselves. This made us feel a little better and thought she gave the experience a nice touch.
