Ripley's Believe It Or Not! Odditorium Review

If you have been a reader of my blog, you know that I had a chance to head to Gatlinburg, TN for our 2 year wedding anniversary! We had many experiences and one of them was being able to visit Ripley's Believe It or Not Odditorium. Let me tell you- ODD is the word! So many things that you would not see anywhere else! Visit the strangest place in Gatlinburg! Ripley’s Believe It or Not! has been proudly freaking out families for over 90 years. There are over
500 outstanding and incredible artifacts from around the world!
 If you walk downtown Gatlinburg at traffic light #8, you will not be able to miss it! Upon entering, we ran into these interesting "creatures". 

As I had said, odd is the word! I took pictures of my favorite and weird things. I am a fan of the odd and sometimes morbid. This was an experience that my husband and I were sure to never forget. Check out this massive transformer that you can see when you walk in! I snapped a better picture of it when we were on the balcony. 
Another thing that I thought was cute in a weird way, was this two headed cow!
There was so much to look at! Things that I would have never been able to see had it not been for us coming here! I was also able to touch a real piece of the Berlin wall. My family is from Germany, so this meant a ton to me!
 I even saw a real human shrunken head!
 And a lock of General Washingtons Hair!
 Charles Manson's signature on his prison shirt.
 A real mummy of a young priest.
 The Hannibal mask from The Silence Of The Lambs!
 This was one of the more interesting.  Pretty self explanatory.
 A face carving of James Brown in a phone book? What!?
 This Buddha is believed to give wealth and happiness to all that rub his belly! You bet ya we rubbed it!
 Can you believe that it is made out of 1 Million Dollars that the U.S. government threw away. What a WASTE. But at least now, I can say I have had my hands on a million dollars!
 Here is a re-creation of the worlds tallest man! Yes- I am so short!
 They also have interactive areas for young children/kids! You can make a wax hand and paint it too!
 We could not pass up sitting in the big chair. Now I just need one of my own!
 Check out the massive light bright! This woman was happy to allow me to snap a picture for my blog!
 Here is more of the interactive areas!
 The gears on this wall are magnetic.
 I thought that this was the cutest thing ever. The noise it makes when you touch the sides is so loud! It was fun trying to play this with my husband!
 I just had to have my fortune taken. I have been wanting to try one of these for a LONG time!
 This wall is the NEATEST thing! You stand on the other side and dance! It adds your shadow and does special effects whenever you move. My husband and I had a blast playing with it.
One of the mirrors we had fun with!
As you can see, my husband and I had a BLAST! We want to go back when we are that way! Prices vary! Seasonal Hours can change so be sure to call or check online before you go.  You can also buy tickets online! You can save $2 by doing so! 
Be sure to check out other Ripley's attractions in Gatlinburg! There is so much to do! There was a ton that I did not post because I don't want to ruin it for you! There is a ton of interactive things for the entire family to do! You can also follow Ripley's on their social media to stay up to date with the latest. You can do so by clicking the links below.
