RIPLEY’S BELIEVE IT OR NOT! BOOTH

Displaying Props & Peculiar Pieces! Head over to booth #1638 to see some of the greatest pieces from the Ripley’s Believe It or Not! collection. Shrunken heads, animal oddities, and the most famous movie pieces of all-time.

Highlights:

  • Original Star Wars Lightsaber – used by Luke Skywalker himself, Mark Hamill, in Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back.
  • Han Solo’s Blaster – from Star Wars: Return of the Jedi. At $550k, is the most expensive item in Ripley’s Star Wars collection!
  • Back to the Future Part II Hoverboard – used by Michael J Fox.
  • Indiana Jones’ Whip – This particular whip was used in multiple scenes of Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade, including when Indy rescued his father–played by Sean Connery–from the Nazis at Castle Brunwald.
  • Shrunken Heads – With over 100 shrunken heads in the Ripley’s collection, they’re known as one of our most iconic exhibits. Robert Ripley collected his first shrunken head from a trader in Panama City in 1923.
  • Animal Oddities – Another Believe It or Not! icon, Robert Ripley was fascinated with animal oddities. He lovingly dubbed the creatures who were dealt strange fates by Mother Nature “Pranks of Nature.”Ripley-Exhibits
  • Vampire Killing Kit – These kits were sold to gullible tourists to vanquish a vampire: garlic, a bible, cross, wooden stake, holy water, and more.

Plus, we have one VERY unique interactive – The Ripley’s Hairball

One of the more unique exhibits in the Ripley’s collection is exactly what it sounds like! The Ripley’s hairball is 4-feet-tall and weighs over 135 pounds—plus, it’s growing!

Over 600 people have personally contributed a lock to this curious creation, and, at FAN EXPO Canada, the Ripley’s Barber Shop will be open!
