Ripleyʼs Believe It or Not!® Panama City Beach, FL is one Floridaʼs favorite indoor attractions. Ripleyʼs Believe It or Not Museum Panama City area location is more than just a museum of the strange and the unusual, but a collection of oddities housed in what appears to be a sinking ship, the S.S. Ripley. The oddity museum known as Ripleyʼs Believe It or Not “Odditorium” houses the bizarre, the macabre, the one-of-a-kind exhibits that have made the late Robert Ripley famous. The collection of rarities from moon rocks returned to the earthʼs surface by Apollo astronauts to the Berlin Wall remnants salvaged from the rubble in 1990 that long separated East from West are compelling.
Interactive exhibits at the Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museum challenge the most nimble participants with the Laser Race, a myriad of laser beams strategically placed from wall-to-wall and ceiling-to-floor creating a near Mission Impossible task to accomplish. Players must traverse this laser light beamed course without breaking a laser light beam – all under the pressure of a digital time clock.
Experience the thrills of a 4D “Moving” Theatre as the action film has you traveling on an Indiana Jones-like mine car through the cavernous underground mineshaft atop narrow gauge rails that threaten to jettison the most whiteknuckled hrill ride attraction enthusiast.
This Panama City Beach attraction, is one of eighty one Ripley’s Believe It or Not Museums and Attractions located in eleven countries and offers something for the entire family. Kids will be mesmerized by the educational exhibits as they learn of distant lands and cultural differences gleaned from up close exhibits that sometimes lead to near “nose print” viewing perspectives on glass protected exhibits. Teens and young adults will find the competitive nature of the Laser Race to be exhilarating. Adults and seniors will savor some of the worldʼs most unusual exhibits. Ripleyʼs Believe It or Not!® Museum is a must see for Panhandle attraction visitors.
One Florida panhandle attraction within Ripleyʼs Museum is the Laser Race. Thin laser beams crisscross the laser room presenting visual obstacles to a safe pathway through the laser light beam challenge. Kids, teens and adults are all challenged to contort their bodies to avoid breaking a light beam. The digital clock is ticking and the daily leader board shows the names of the Top 10 participants and their time for the day. Can you beat the clock?
Howʼs your balance? Navigate Ripleyʼs Inversion Tunnel, a cylindrical experience where your senses play tricks on your ability to keep your balance and successfully reach the other side of this projection tube. Disorientation is common. Do you have the ability to control your equilibrium in this challenging walk? If not, thereʼs always the “cowardʼs bypass” for the dizzy-minded. Itʼs great family fun at Ripleyʼs Panama City Beach, FL.
