Ripley's Believe It or Not! It was founded by Robert Ripley, and deals in bizarre events. Most of them are so strange and unusual that readers might question the claims. It became so popular that it was adapted into a wide variety of formats like the radio, television, books and museums. Ripley first cartoon feature was called Champs and Chumps, and it premiered in the New York Globe. Ripley began adding items unrelated to sports, and he changed the title to Believe It or Not. There is a wide range of true and unbelievable art, sculpture, photographs, and interactive devices in his collection. Animal oddities, and recycled objects are also there. To be included in books, museums, or television shows, items must undergo scrutiny from Ripley's staff and be 100% authenticated.

Inside the Gatlinburg Museum you find everything from an authentic shrunken head, to the world’s rarest egg. There are two headed animals, spinning tunnel and unique works of art. The Odditorium contains 12 themed galleries, over 500 mind boggling exhibits, oddities and curiosities. The only place in Gatlinburg where you’ll find a 12ft tall Transformer sculpture made of scrap car parts. Another exhibit is an authentic vampire killing kit which is one-of-a-kind artwork. The wicked spinning vortex tunnel will keep you spinning.

The 3D Movie Theatre is a bumpy ride. Strap on your seat belts for this seriously Moving Theatre experience. The digital effects and motions seats will have you feeling like you’re in the movie. Bump, dip, and shake your way through our Rats Race and Winter Wipe-out adventures. At the Haunted Adventure actors lurk behind every corner of this creepy renovated mansion. They welcome you with high pitched horror. Try your luck at putt putt. The mini golf course with the Smokies as a back drop is stunning. Find your way out of the Mirror Maze.
