Believe it or not, Ripley’s is coming to the Middle East for the first time & taking over Wafi Mall this September!
What Is It?
The world’s most peculiar traveling show, Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is making its way to Dubai for the first time and visitors will have a chance to experience it at Wafi Mall. From the start of September for next 3 months, you get to see bizarre displays for free. This year marks its 100th anniversary & would be the first time Ripley’s Believe It or Not! will tour the Middle East.
Head of Central Marketing Katherine Revett said “This activation will be unusual, intriguing and an overall surprise, which parents and their children can enjoy together. It promotes the art of fun and education in today’s digital age and we can really see Ripley’s bringing a family together at Wafi.”
Ripley’s Believe It or Not! was founded by Robert Ripley, which deals in bizarre events and items so strange and unusual that readers may question the claims. It was originally a newspaper panel but after the Believe It or Not feature proved popular it was later adapted into a wide variety of formats, including radio, television, comic books, a chain of museums, and even a book series.
The Ripley collection includes 20,000 photographs, 30,000 artifacts and more than 100,000 cartoon panels. Their 80-plus attractions see an annual attendance of more than 12 million guests.
