Ripley’s Believe It or Not: Captain’s Quarters Nearby Attraction
One of the attractions you should consider taking in during your Myrtle Beach vacation at Captain’s Quarters is the Ripley’s Believe It Or Not exhibition, also called an odditorium.
Located at on Ocean Boulevard, Believe It Or Not is a franchise that has outlets in 13 states and in 6 countries internationally. The franchise, which was founded by Robert Ripley, an American cartoonist, entrepreneur and amateur anthropologist, started off as a cartoon strip, branching into radio, television and later into physical exhibitions, or odditoria.
These take on a number of different exterior shapes, such as cracked buildings and sinking ships. Ripley’s Believe It Or Not in Myrtle Beach resembles a building that has been cracked open by an earthquake.
At the entrance to Ripley’s Believe It Or Not you’ll find a band made up of robotic puppets playing an Eastern European melody, and once inside you’ll get to experience numerous oddities collected from around the world; things like a ceremonial carved skull from Tibet, shrunken heads and a six-legged cow (though the legs aren’t where you imagine they will be)! Or you can see how you stack up against the world’s tallest man. And don’t be surprised to feel as though you’ve been up-ended by a bizarre optical effect in one section of the exhibition.
Ripley’s Believe It Or Not odditorium is one of six Ripley attractions in the area where you can make use of your VMB Card to get a Myrtle Beach discount, the others being the well-known Ripley Aquarium at Broadway on the Beach, an arcade, a house of mirrors, a haunted house and a moving-theater attraction.
The Ripley’s Believe It Or Not museum is the perfect place to take the curious person on vacation with you, from kids to adults who are kids at heart.
And with the VMB Card you got when you checked in to Captain’s Quarters can get $2 off your entrance ticket!
Bring a little strangeness into your vacation by visiting Ripley’s Myrtle Beach attractions.
