The Science of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! in Scottsdale

The Science of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! is now in Scottsdale at the Arizona Boardwalk! This impressive display will leave you amazed and perhaps baffled at facts and oddities from all over the world. 

What will you find at The Science of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! display? It allows guests to measure up against Robert Wadlow, the world’s tallest man, who grew to 8 feet 11 inches (2.72 m) tall! Young children will enjoy crawling through a life-size model of the prehistoric snake, Titanoboa, and revel at its incredible size. They will enjoy a dinosaur made of tires, a techo dance floor, a temporary tattoo station and so much more.

Teens who dream of obtaining their driver’s license and a set of “wheels” will be amazed by the incredibly tiny size of a Peel Car, while adults will marvel at the Rolls Royce made of matchsticks, and a portrait of Einstein made of toast. There is a mixture of hands on displays, and look-but-don’t-touch displays. 






I have a confession: I am going back without the kids! While everyone stops and does a double take at the two headed cow, I need to go alone to really take in some of the believe it or not factor. Kids many not be as fascinated by Einstein as toast as this Mom is! This would also make a fun date night experience.


Another option for young kids would be to have two adults along, so they can take turns touring the exhibits solo. There is alot of reading involved for the exhibits, but littles can also enjoy the displays and hands on experiences, like the giant snake. For homeschoolers, this is a fabulous field trip option with opportunities to learn about science, history, geography, and more.
