Halloween At Ripley’s Believe It Or Not!
Friday, October 28th 2016, 8:00 pm - 11:55 pm: 

Halloween at Ripley's Believe It or Not Times Square


Join New York Adventure Club and our friends doNYC for a Halloween experience like no other at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Odditorium, a museum collection of 500 extraordinarily bizarre and unique finds from Robert Ripley, which range from the world’s largest collection of shrunken heads to an authentic 19-foot-tall albino giraffe.

Once the doors close to the general public at 8pm sharp, you’ll have free rein to:

   • Roam the maze of 20 dimly-lit rooms bursting with the bizarre

   • Step through the perception-altering Black Hole

   • Compete in a judged costume contest for prizes

   • Taste some food & drinks from our sponsors scattered throughout the museum

   • Jam out to Halloween-themed music, and even

   • Challenge friends to navigate a maze of lasers without breaking a beam — all without a single Times Square tourist, Naked Cowboy, or aggressive Elmo to ruin the evening.

Your ticket to this one-of-a-kind experience includes private entry into the museum, access to complimentary & for-purchase food & beverages, and tons of oddities.

Costumes of any kind are highly encouraged.
