For the love of Ripley’s!

One of my favorite books so far this year is the newest Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Enter If You Dare!

If you have the stomach and imagination there are a ton of photos and stories of the most bizarre things the Ripley’s authors could find! Crazy contortionists, angry hippos, tiny teens, freak accidents, whole body tattoos… There is truly something for everyone.

The Ripley’s empire all started when Robert Ripley began to travel the world collecting stories, artifacts, and photos of strange wonders in the 1920s. After some travels be brought back to America things no one had ever seen before.

If you are traveling this summer you must check to see if there is a Ripley’s Attraction nearby. To date, there are 85 locations in 11 countries, including museums, odditoriums, and one aquarium! Two headed fish anyone? Here is a photo of the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum in Branson, MO.

If you just can’t get enough Ripley’s you might also like the Guinness Book of World Records too.

I visited the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium in Atlantic City, NJ when I was a teen and LOVED it! Does anyone have a Ripley’s memory to share?
