Free Admission! (With a Catch)
Here’s something to look forward to.
Ripley's Odditoriums Offer Free Admission After Doomsday
The alleged end of the world could be great for people who like weird things and bargains.
Ripley's Believe It Or Not! is offering free admission to any of its 32 Odditoriums in 10 countries on Saturday, Dec. 22.
There is a catch: The world has to end on Dec. 21 in order for the deal to work.
Ripley's spokesman Tim O'Brien doesn't seem to be worried about the alleged Apocalypse, but admits if he's wrong, there will be repercussions.
“We feel pretty good about this deal, but if we’re wrong it’s going to cost us a lot of money,” O’Brien said.
Just to make sure that the deal was a good bet for the company, Ripley’s researchers have attempted to verify the claims of the doomsday by reviewing the Mayan calendar, Mayan culture and even Maya Angelou.
So far, the prophecy can't be verified as true, the standard required by the company to become a genuine “believe it or not!”
In order to collect, visitors will have to provide proof of the world's end and cheapskates can't try to combine the deal with other offers.
