We had the amazing opportunity to go up London and attend Ripley’s Believe it or not, featuring Wicked, since me and KK had already been to see Wicked Musical – check out our Review HERE–
I thought it would be great to go and see more Wicked theme events since we want to Defy Gravity hehe
We arrived in good time and the entrance had some fantastic Artefacts on show, a mini with millions of Swarovski crystals. Optimus Prime from Transformers who is 18 Feet Tall made from recycled steel- salvaged from broken down old cars, and the hungarian Horntail from Harry Potter !
we was able to stand next to the tallest man, Robert Wadlow who was 8 ft 11” tall now Im wondering where he got his clothes from !
upon entering the magical world we was presented with our VIP Pass – OHHH AHHH – KK had a massive grin on her face.
And then it all changed we was out into the vortex and had to try and get through without falling, sounds funny but its a fast spinning cylinder with an industrial ramp for you to go through, its a pretty good head F*CK.
KK was scared at first then decided she wanted to keep going back and forth to get over the fear of it..
when we finally moved from there we went through different rooms with all their usual pieces on show, really interesting the things you find out, art from pop caps and all different facts about other countries
when we arrived and the Wicked exhibition we was greeted with selection of appetisers and some choice on drinks, very nice and well thought out.
Glinda’s and Elphaba’s dress were on show was beautiful and the shoes costumes and detail was amazing to see up close.
It was disappointing their was only one face painter and the line wasn’t organised well, I understand younger children get excited and push in front but when you have been waiting over half an hour and 3 people have pushed in did take the biscuit and lead to KK having a Meltdown.
I mention this because I was impressed with how the staff handled the situation, once she calmed down we was taken down to get some sweets and a drink then we was given the chance to play in the Vortex and then the Laser maze which KK did really well on in fact she had the top score !
Have you been to Ripley’s? if so please comment below and let me know how you found it i’d love to hear
