“We are going to be having an Unbelievable amount of fun this year” says John Dixon, General Manager of Believe It or Not! Branson.

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is celebrating its 100th anniversary! A centennial anniversary is an amazing milestone that few companies can say they have achieved. “Believe It or Not!”, a phrase you likely hear daily was coined by Robert Ripley. 100 years later, “Believe It or Not!” remains a part of our lexicon, but what about the man behind the phrase? Ripley was famous for his world travels and regaling his readers with tales of far-flung places. Ripley traveled to more than 200 countries in 35 years seeking the odd, the unusual, and the unexplained.

Today, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! has evolved into a global family entertainment company with over 100 attractions in ten countries, and have robust media, entertainment, publishing and licensing divisions.

Congratulations, Branson!
