Skip the Line when you purchase tickets in advance!
It’s time to enter the deliciously strange world of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square while on your New York vacation. BestofNewYork.com has your tickets at low prices to see everything from authentic shrunken heads, live sword-swallowing, crazy sideshow stunts and just plain bizarre relics in the heart of the Big Apple. And now you can see even more exhibits at the beacon of the odd. See a perfect scale model of the World Trade Center that’s made out of 470,000 matchsticks and stands 17 feet tall. Or maybe you want to go through New York City in just 16 steps? You’ll be able to do just that on a staircase that boasts the sights and sounds from the Bronx to Wall Street with a backdrop created by the renowned NY-based arts collective Tats Cru. See your dance moves projected into a wild rainbow of fluorescent colors on an oversized screen in the new “Recollections” room. Take a stroll through the new Amazonian Makeover exhibit for a chance to get your head transformed into a shrunken head. And you can accessorize it with hair, war paint and bones. It’s just another reason to love a place that already gives you a chance to see a piece of the Berlin Wall, a meteorite and much more on your New York vacation.
