In the center one of London’s main areas lies Ripley’s Believe It or Not.  An idea started by a man who wanted to travel around the world and find all the amazing things that made it so unique and magical.  A large portion of his collection can be seen along with a few fun activities at Ripley’s London.

Located at Piccadilly Circus, you’re in the right spot to see some interesting stuff.  I wasn’t really sure what to expect when we arrived, but I knew it would be adventure.  A 7 foot tall transformer greeted us as the entrance as we were welcomed into the center.  You take an elevator to the top floor and the exhibit slowly winds it’s way back down stairs to the street.

What I liked were the two activities.  There is a mirror maze that is very cool and then a Mission Impossible style laser game.  Those two things were my favorite parts.  I think this would go over well for families and people that want to see weird and interesting stuff.  The mission impossible laser game that I didn’t get a photo of has you crawling around to avoid the lasers and get to the safe in the room.  It was really cool and my favorite part of the attraction.

Some pricing tips.  The adult ticket is £27 and a family is £88, but you can order online and save 15% even if you buy them 30 minutes before you go which would make the price £23 for an adult and £75 for a family of 4.  Getting there is also really easy.  You just take the underground to Piccadilly Circus and it’s just outside one of the exits.  There just happens to be a Cinnabon right next door that we had a scrumptious cinnamon roll at afterwards.

Ripley’s Believe it or not in London is open 365 days a year so you know it’s always available.  This post was brought to you in partnership with Ripley’s Believe it or Not in London

      I know, I thought it was crazy. I didn’t even know that could happen.
