Are you looking for Ripley’s promo codes and discounts for your next trip to Gatlinburg and Sevierville? You’re in luck.

Visiting a Ripley’s attraction is a great way for your family to spend a Smoky Mountain vacation, and combo passes are a great way to save money and see multiple attractions.

In fact, the Great Smoky Mountains is proud to be home to eight Ripley’s attractions. That’s more Ripley’s attractions than anywhere else in the world! 

What are the Ripley’s attractions in Gatlinburg?

The Ripley’s Believe It or Not! empire began with a simple sports cartoon in 1918. Robert Ripley traveled the world, collected “oddities” and published cartoons and books.

The very first Odditorium opened in Chicago in 1933, and its success led to more locations around the country.

Through the years, Ripley’s has expanded into a number of attractions, and many can be found here in the Smokies. Here’s a list of Ripley’s attractions in Gatlinburg and Sevierville, complete with promo codes and discounts:

  1. My family and I have the ultimate fun pass for all of the Ripley’s. We tried to use the pass at the Super Fun Zone in April of 2021 and we couldn’t use them. We are coming to Tennessee next week and we are wondering if we can use the passes at the Super Fun Zone this time. If someone could let me know asap I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
