Ripley’s Believe It or Not! features world-class entertainment attractions where anyone can enjoy, relax, and entertain friends, family and colleagues during weekends, vacations and all other occasions.
You have travelled the world over and over and think you know all you need to know.. Well think again as all that you will witness at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in Pattaya will make you question your thoughts and perceptions of the world – the one that you already know and one that you still have yet to know.
Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is located on the third floor at the Royal Garden Plaza and the museum houses just over 300 exhibits inside 10 uniquely themed galleries that have been inspired by Robert Leroy Ripley’s books “Believe It or Not!”.
Ripley’s Believe It or Not! has been designed to balance among three elements, and these are the strange, shocking and beautiful.
There are hundreds of weird and wonderful things on display, with every label in English and Thai. Some items are originals, others are replicas. Several displays are interactive like a scale you can stand on to check your weight on the moon.
As you walk around, the museum will surely blow your mind away with things that you didn’t even know existed. And guaranteed, once you have finished your visit and go home you will be left wondering if what you have just seen, actually exists in real life. So, no, you haven’t seen enough of this world yet
So what makes this place so special? What are you missing out on? Well, the answer to that is simple. You are not missing out on anything that is life-changing but will learn some strange facts about the world we live in. What makes this museum so famous is it focuses on the things that you least expect to see. Some of these include A real shrunken head, a mask made from human skin, primitive torture devices and even a wax figure of a four-eyed man. The scary thing is, some of these are actually in fact real artefacts and some are just replicas.
However, with all this said, The “odd” is not the only thing you will encounter at the museum. You will also see the very curious, as in curious facts and inventions. These include a Titanic that is made entirely of matchsticks and a model of the 1937 Jaguar that is actually a motorboat.
There are also so many other things to enjoy at Ripley’s Believe It or Not! such as The Infinity Maze, where a 20-minute trip into the Maze will challenge your perception, mesmerize all your senses and make your question reality! Be exhilarated with Ripley’s 4D Moving Theater, a high-tech simulator amusement ride guaranteed to thrill both the mind and body. Venture into your worst nightmares at Ripley’s Haunted Adventure. Prepare to be dazzled with imaginable special effects and live actors that will surely send shivers down your spine from the moment you enter ‘til the time you escape! and Tussauds Wax Museum. It is so very easy to spend a whole day here and go back home with the most amazing tales to tell your family and friends.
Ripley’s life story is as amazing as the collections inside the museum. He is a self-taught artist, Ripley had travelled the world and, just as a personal hobby, documented all weird and wonderful things he witnessed along the way.
This life-long passion for travel and adventures had taken him to many parts of the world, whether it was in Europe, Central America, South America and Asia, where he felt most at home in China.
As he travelled, he documented every strange thing and creatures he saw. By unitizing his artistic talent, he was able to draw them as cartoons and published them in a series of cartoon panels under the title “Believe it or Not!”, which later grew into radio and television shows. At the height of his career, his cartoon series had an estimated readership of 80 million.
