If you are planning a family vacation to Orlando then chances are you are probably planning a visit to a theme park or two or five!! After all, Orlando is a theme park mecca but trying to fit all those parks into your vacation can and will be exhausting, not to mention the blistered feet, sunburn and just over all theme park burnout. The best way to avoid what I call theme park vacation exhaustion is to plan a day or two within your vacation that you slow down the pace and plan other activities outside of the theme parks. Orlando has no shortage of great family fun attractions that won’t require an exhausting pace and that are much kinder to your feet. One such attraction is Ripley’s Believe It or Not!
If your family is into the curious and downright bizarre then you have to keep a few hours available on your vacation schedule for Ripley’s. This is an indoor, air-conditioned, walk at your own pace type of attraction that is sure to entertain and bewilder your entire family.
The exhibits range from the just plain strange to the truly odd to the ones where you will be scratching your head and asking…. Why? Part old fashioned carnival fun house and part museum of the weird, creepy and exotic, this place will sure to have you laughing out loud or maybe just saying yuck!! But watch out because everyone might see those funny faces that you make.
At Ripley’s Believe It or Not!! you can test your brain power on some interesting interactive games of trivia and observation or try figuring out some mind blowing optical illusions. Don’t get dizzy though, as some of those illusions feel and look very real!!! At Ripley’s you will discover the educational, the extraordinary and the ridiculous all under one roof.
Where there are a couple of exhibits that may be a little disturbing to very young children if they frighten easily, most of the attraction is completely family friendly and will definitely give you and your youngsters something to tell your friends about when you get back home.
Explore the mysterious at Ripley’s Believe It or Not!! located at 8201 International Drive, right in the heart of Orlando’s family vacation haven convenient to Universal Studios, Icon Park and surrounding hotels.
