Description: This Halloween, Ripley's Believe It or Not! Times Square is turning its 18,000-square-foot Odditorium into a haunted playground with Ripley's Boo-lieve It or Not! Slumber Fest. A spooky twist on Ripley's Times Square's famed "Extreme Sleepover," this outrageous overnight experience offered on October 28 and October 29, featuring outrageous performances with a Ripley's edge – where seeing is believing, plus trick or treating, a costume contest, flashlight scavenger hunt, and even the thrill of a late night haunted house.
Upon arrival, guests will witness show-stopping acrobats by famed entertainer Bubble Boy along with dare-devil stunts by Professor Danger. Kids will trick-or-treat while exploring oddities from around the globe such as the world's largest display of shrunken heads, a vampire killing kit and eight-foot tall Transformer statue made completely of used car parts. At the stroke of midnight, the lights turn out for a thrilling haunted scavenger hunt.
"We've upped the ante on our popular Extreme Sleepover to create the ultimate Halloween celebration," said Michael Hirsch, President/General Manager of Ripley's Believe It or Not! Times Square. "And if a scavenger hunt in the dark doesn't thrill scare-seeking youngsters …there's always a sleeping bag next to our hissing cockroaches."
