Ripley’s Believe It or Not! to Open Two New Attractions on the Ocean City Boardwalk – Sweet!
Ripley’s Marvelous Mirror Maze & Candy Factory and Ripley’s
Impossible LaseRace to open in time for Memorial Day weekend fun
OCEAN CITY, Md. (May 25, 2010) – Ripley’s Believe It or Not! will sweeten Ocean City Boardwalk offerings this week as it opens two new family fun attractions: Ripley’s Marvelous Mirror Maze & Candy Factory and Ripley’s Impossible LaseRace.
These new, innovative, fun and tasty attractions will be opening their doors on May 28 in the Pier Building on the Boardwalk, four doors down from Ripley’s Believe It or Not!, directly adjacent to the World Famous Thrasher’s French Fries.
The Marvelous Mirror Maze features hundreds of mirrors, music, mysterious sounds and colorful lighting effects. The spectacular and colorful candy store has a splendiferous variety of candies of all kinds – from old fashioned root beer barrels to the most current confections, all set in a fantasy candy factory surrounding.
Imagine playing INSIDE a video game. At Ripley’s new Impossible LaseRace, players step inside a laser-filled chamber and become part of the game as they jump, crawl, and straddle a gauntlet of laser lights. The player’s mission is to beat the clock and reach the end without breaking a single laser beam.
“Both of these attractions are fun and wonderful activities for the entire family to enjoy together,” said Desi Knaub, general manager of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! “They are different from any other attractions now offered in Ocean City.”
The new attractions are located just south of the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in the Pier Building on the boardwalk at 401 South Atlantic Avenue. All three Ripley’s are open daily, 9 a.m. to Midnight. A combo ticket that includes all three Ripley’s Boardwalk attractions is available and offers great savings for all family members.
The Ripley’s Marvelous Mirror Maze and Candy Factory and Ripley’s Impossible LaseRace are the newest members of the Ripley Entertainment Inc. family, which includes more than 80 family attractions in 11 countries, including Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditoriums, Louis Tussaud’s Wax Museums, Ripley’s Aquariums, Ripley’s Haunted Adventures, Ripley’s Moving Theaters, Ripley’s Mini-Golf, and the Guinness World Records Museums.
