NEW YORK (Sept. 26, 2012) – Ripley’s Boo-lieve It or Not! Slumber Fest returns to Ripley’s Times Square this Halloween to put a spooky twist on the Odditorium’s famed “Extreme Sleepover.” Offered on Saturday, October 27, this spine-chilling overnight experience thrills with unbelievable sideshow performances, costume contest, Halloween scavenger hunt and more. 

“Ripley’s Times Square offers youngsters the ultimate Halloween destination. Where else but at Ripley’s can someone sleep under the same roof as the world’s largest display of shrunken heads, dinosaur fossils, Egyptian mummies, and hissing cockroaches?” said Michael Hirsch, president/general manager of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square.  

Throughout the course of the night, guests will witness show-stopping stunts including fire breathing and dancing on glass by a famed sideshow performer.  Kids will trick-or-treat while exploring oddities from around the globe such as a massive meteorite, a vampire killing kit and two-headed animals. At the stroke of midnight, the lights turn off for a haunted flashlight hunt.
