Ripley’s reopens after modern makeover
From Niagara This Week:
Oddball items and curiosities are back on display in Niagara Falls, Ont., now that one of the city’s mainstay attractions has reopened following a major modernization.
Ripley’s Believe It or Not opened the doors to its so-called “odditorium” Friday after six months of renovations aimed at replacing traditional exhibits with something more hands-on.
The revamped attraction features interactive exhibits, including one that allows visitors to simulate walking a tightrope over the iconic falls.
Another exhibit, the Niagara Water Wall, has visitors control the flow, colour and shape of the water using wheels and cranks.
The museum’s manager, Tim Parker, says it’s the most drastic change the space has undergone in years.
