Photo-Tour of "Ripley's Believe It or Not!" in Orlando, Florida (Part 2)

Thank you for joining us for the second part of this large photo-tour of Ripley's Believe It or Not! As usual, we invite you to also check out PART 1 to view even more photos taken inside this attraction.
In the previous part, we explored the first few galleries of the Odditorium, which are filled with interesting and unique artifacts. There are still plenty of exhibits to check out, including the area dedicated to Marilyn Monroe's $5 million dress. We hope you will enjoy the rest of this virtual tour.

A copy of the dress can be found in front of the real dress, which is guarded by an employee:

- The Fears of the Year 1000 -

This particular area of the attraction can be nightmare-inducing...

Among the props and artifacts found in this section of the Odditorium, Guests can find instruments of torture that were actually used during the Medieval age. It's truly sad to think how much suffering these things caused...
