Definitely something that we do not like to miss
in Genting Highland.
At the entrance of Ripley’s in Genting are
model statues of the tallest man in the
world, the heaviest and the smallest. The
world’s heaviest man is from Conga and he
weighs in at 636kg! These three form the
welcome bandwagon, inviting you to enter
their extraordinary world.
There is a water tap flowing without
support…Xing took a long time to examine how
this huge size stand in the air with no
support yet more puzzle to us was where does
the continuous flow of water came from ?

Before entering the Repley Museum one first
walk through the gates of the Haunted
Adventure where the "Hundred Year Old Coffin
of Terror" and other spooky nature await
you. This part is not for the faint-hearted!
Almost all visitors are young unmarried
teenage. Several girls keep screaming. The
several 'ghost' are actually amateur
'actors' paid to provide the trill
entertainment. These 'ghost' are rather 'ham
sap' in a sense that they particularly
interested in disturbing young girls entered
the haunted house.
A one point in the almost complete darkness,
we dimly saw a door open slow in front of us
and some one dress in dark was slowing
moving out. I put my light bar toward and
saw a clearer view of the face of this
ghost. But the ghost suppose to do some
trill to the visitor to create excitement
did not do any thing. Surely, he saw that
the two of us just one old man and one big
boy, there is no fun to create. But
situation will be completely different if I
am a sexy lady with a pretty girl inside
this haunted house.
The Believe It or Not franchise started in

unusual and startling facts from around the
Conceived and drawn by Robert Ripley, the
panel proved popular and was later adapted
into a wide variety of formats, including
radio, television, a chain of museums and a
Here we find the unbelievable, the
incredible and unforgettable.
These are 500 exhibits at Ripley’s Believe
It or Not! Museum at the First World Plaza,
one of 27 such museums in the world.
The museums showcase the lifetime work of
Robert Ripley, born in 1893, who first
gained fame in 1918 as a newspaper panel
cartoonist featuring unusual and startling
facts from around the world. Part of these
collections of oddities, spectaculars and
the unimaginable are originals but most are
replicas constructed and shipped from
Orlando, the headquarters in Florida.
We saw the diamond in the box…whereby we try
to get hold of it but can’t. All these 500
over exhibits are displayed in Mr. Ripley
Gallery, Animal Gallery, World's Record,
Oddities Gallery etc.
Rub For Fertility is one of the exhibits

Prisons, torture chambers and incarceration
have always been a fascination for many
people. Is it the sadistic side of all of
us? Tiny windowless isolation cells vividly
portray the mental torture of total lack of
human contact. Then there are iron balls and
chains, roasting and stretching platforms,
spiked collars and other ingenious ways to
inflict the greatest pain.
We took our time to stroll through these
rooms, examining and reading about each
fascinating subject and wax model. Hundreds
of mind-boggling exhibits can keep you
occupied for hours.
The other galleries include special ones for
animals, history, art, costumes, transport,
oddities, primitive, restrooms (this one you
must see for its humor aspect), tilt room
and peeping hole.

last visitors of the day to leave the
museum. Preparing to close the museum for
the day, the staff also switch off
unnecessary lighting and equipment at the
time we were leaving the museum. We had a
last look at the mystery floating water tap
that had continuous flow of water from
unknown source, and we found the answer.
