Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Unveils Wax Figures of President-Elect Trump

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Unveils Wax Figures of President-Elect Trump
The first life-size wax Trump is now on display at Ripley’s Orlando Odditorium; others are headed for Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks
Orlando, Fla. (November 11, 2016) They’re huuuuuge, they’re big league and they’ve been hand- crafted by the F/X team at Ripley’s Believe It or Not!

They are the very first
wax figures of Donald Trump. One is now on display at Ripley’s Orlando Odditorium on I-Drive. It is in the lobby and can be seen and photographed for free – but only for a limited time. Just as in real life, the wax Trump is polling at about 50% – loved by some Ripley’s visitors, loathed by others.
Ripley’s created three wax figures of the President-elect. They will go on display at Louis Tussaud’s Palace of Wax in Grand Prairie, Texas, and Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks in San Antonio, Texas and Niagara Falls, Ontario. Ripley Entertainment owns and operates the three Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks.
Ripley’s F/X team started creating the first Trump figure about four months ago.  Each is sculpted by hand by a team of artists, using photographs to create the likeness. Each figure takes about six weeks to complete.
Win or lose, the Trump figures were destined for Louis Tussaud’s; after Tuesday’s election results they’ll now stand with other presidential wax figures.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Niagara Falls is
NOW OPEN after top-to-bottom renovation

Experience the all new “Oddventure”

Niagara Falls, Ont. (May 20, 2016) – After experiencing perhaps the world’s strangest “extreme makeover,” Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Niagara Falls Odditorium is now open once again.

After an extensive, six-month renovation, a new Oddventure awaits visitors with dozens of new exhibits and interactives throughout the expanded 12,000 square foot Odditorium – 13 different themed galleries in all.Some of the must-see, unbelievable displays include:

  • Niagara Water Wall – a very hands-on H2O experience. Guests control the flow of water through a series of pipes by turning wheels and cranks; as they do, the water changes its flow, its color and even its shape!
  • A rickshaw painstakingly carved from jade
  • An actual segment from the Berlin wall
  • Kids Crawl – explore what lurks in several mysterious crates; guests must first figure out how to activate each exhibit
  • Tightrope over the falls – balance on a graphic of a tightrope on the ground while you watch yourself walk over Niagara Falls on a projection screen
  • Small vs. Tall – grab a partner and enter this quirky room that shrinks one person and turns the other into a giant
  • An animatronic Robert Wadlow, the tallest person ever at 8′ 11″

“Ripley’s has been entertaining Niagara Falls visitors for more than 50 years,” said Tim Parker, Ripley’s Niagara Falls General Manager. “We’re now proud to offer our biggest and best experience yet, with an amazing collection of items and exhibits that will keep people laughing and learning at every turn.”

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Niagara Falls Odditorium is located at 4960 Clifton Hill, and is open Monday-Thursday from 10 am to 11 pm and Friday-Sunday from 9 am to midnight, 365 days a year.

Niagara Falls Hotels Get Ready for the Country’s Biggest Holiday Lights Event

No Comments

From a MarketWired press release:

Few things evoke the holidays as powerfully as a good lights display. And the Winter Festival of Lights at Niagara Falls is about as spectacular as they come. Boasting more than 3 million lights and 125 animated displays, this annual event, now in its 33rd year, will attract thousands of spectators this winter. And offering them a front-row seat to all the holiday magic is the Courtyard Niagara Falls.

The fun kicks off on November 21 when the Niagara Falls Festival of Lights impresses audiences with an all new lineup of opening ceremonies at Queen Victoria Park. Starting at 6 p.m., the event will include the CHROMATIQUE show (featuring art, music and technology) and a dance performance by the Tin Soldiers).

Other opening night performances will include the light show LED Danza and the debut of the Fallsview Sound & Light Show. Plus visitors can tour the 5 kilometres of displays throughout the Niagara Parks Winter Wonderland, Dufferin Islands and surrounding areas. (On the Dufferin Islands, visitors are treated to light displays of howling wolves, bears and other wildlife, while a 20-by-35-foot tower of cascading lights almost steals the show.)
