Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Odditorium in Soul Boardwalk at Surfers Paradise, has recently undergone a major renovation and with a new attraction, new lobby and new galleries with new exhibits and interactive opportunities, there are sure to be squeals of delight, awe and amazement.

With the addition of a nine metre blue ringed octopus named ‘Ring-o’ with glowing rings, perched above the facade, Ripley’s is now listed on Australia’s “Big Things” list, joining the Big Lobster, Big Merino, Big Pineapple and Big Banana.

The Odditorium now covers 1,000sqm with more than 350 genuine artefacts, life-size wax figures of amazing characters such as the World’s Tallest Man and interactive games, arcades and illusions.

While you’re there, don’t forget to check out Ripley’s LaseRace, where you can test your speed and agility as you manoeuvre your way through the course without touching the lasers.

Ripley’s 7D Movie Theatre is an eight seater immersive motion simulator ride with multiple effects and dimensions to make you feel as if you are at the centre of a video game.

Each ride goes for five to 10 minutes and there is a choice of simulations you can play from a zombie apocalypse to robot wars and ninja battle.

Ripley’s offers three types of tickets – the VIP combo pass, single admission to Ripley’s Odditorium and single admission to Ripley’s 7D Moving Movie Theatre.

The VIP combo pass is the most popular and includes entry to Ripley’s Odditorium, unlimited play on LaseRace and one ride on Ripley’s 7D Moving Theatre.

Group pricing is also available on request.
