Between Guinness world record holders and crazy artifacts, it’s safe to say it was the OG pop-up that managed to outlast them all!
But just because it’s been around for awhile, that doesn’t mean it can’t have some tricks still up its sleeves.
Its newest venture, Ripley’s Relic, begins June 28th and plans to challenge escape rooms around the city. No one said they don’t like a little friendly competition!
The interactive adventure turns average joes into explorers who work together to “unlock a series of puzzles and decipher a strange assortment of scientific symbols that were recently discovered in Times Square.”
ripleysny Far beneath the surface of Times Square, a strange discovery has been made directly under Ripley’s Believe It or Not! on 42nd Street. The world’s premier museum for strange, out-of-this-world artifacts, has a brand new escape adventure opening in the crossroads of the world this summer. Behold the magic and mystery of Ripley’s Relic coming June 28, 2018. . . . #ripleysrelic #somethingiscoming #seekadventure #seekitout #ripleysbelieveitornot #ripleysmuseum #newyork #ny #nyc #newyorkcity #timessquare #escape #adventure
The “escape room” comes with its own guide - new high tech components and movie-like sets, in a new part of the well-known location that is only reachable by secret elevator. You have to solve a puzzle to even enter the cavern, and once you do, the rest of your adventure awaits.
Ripley’s is the first NYC attraction to jump on the ever-growing escape room bandwagon with a separate attraction.
Unlike escape rooms though, this is a 15 minute, $15/person experience for up to 10 people, so it’s both cheaper and shorter than your average mission escape. And if you’ve seen enough of Ripley’s for the moment, you can do the experience on its own too—no museum purchase necessary.
Check it out at Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Times Square at 234 West 42nd Street. We know we will!
