Believe It or Not! Ripley's Times Square is scooping up free ice cream cones for visitors on Friday, Aug. 17, but don’t expect the standard vanilla, chocolate or strawberry.

To help beat the summer heat, guests visiting the Odditorium from 12-6pm are invited to take a spin on the Wacky Wheel of Ice "Screams" to receive a free sample cone and the chance to earn half-price admission. Filled with outrageous tasting challenges, Ripley's Wacky Wheel features a variety of shocking flavors such as pizza and curry, a blind taste test, mystery topping, and much more. Guests who successfully complete their designated ice cream tasting (or at least make a valiant effort trying), will receive half-price admission to the museum on Friday, Aug. 17.

Ice cream samples available while supplies last. Discount cannot be combined with any other offer.

Additional Info: Ripley's Believe It or Not! Times Square Odditorium is the oddest place in NYC! Ripley's features an extensive collection of more than 500 unusual, bizarre and astonishing oddities, ranging from the 24 shrunken heads, to a six-legged cow, and a 3,197 lb. meteorite. Ripley's is the embodiment of one man's endless fascination with our world, illustrating his belief that fact is stranger than fiction. Be in awe of these weird and unusual artifacts in over twenty themed galleries, compassing two floors. Ripley's Believe It or Not!
