All Ripley’s Believe It or Not!® attractions in Florida are hosting a new event for some unbelievable summer fun –  Ripley’s Superhero Summer!

Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditoriums in St. Augustine, Orlando, Panama City Beach and Key West will all host Marvel® characters throughout the summer, including Spider-Man!

Ripley’s Superhero Summer character appearances are free with paid admission to Ripley’s Believe It or Not! and are scheduled for the following dates for St. Augustine:

In addition to hosting some of Marvel’s Super Heroes, Ripley’s will be recognizing real-life heroes and supporting local charities. Ripley’s is looking for nominations for its new “Homespun Heroes” contest that will recognize people who have gone above and beyond to make a difference in their community.

Starting May 29, Ripley’s will choose one weekly winner who will win a private meet-and-greet with a character at one of the Marvel Super Hero visits at Ripley’s, as well as a lifetime pass to Ripley’s and other prizes! Homespun Hero nominations should be emailed to Kim Kiff at kkiff@ripleys.com, and make sure to put “Hero” in the subject line. Nominees can be adults or children. Ripley’s is looking for people who have made a difference in the quality of life for their community, school, or an individual! Check their Facebook page for a listing of Marvel Super Hero visits.

Ripley’s is also offering a $2,500 sweepstakes as part of Ripley’s Superhero Summer. This is open to anyone – all people need to do is enter in the lobby of any of Ripley’s Florida attractions. The randomly selected winner will get $2,500 and a charity of their choice will also get $2,500! The sweepstakes will run through May 29, 2017 – September 4, 2017.

Ripley’s will also donate a portion of the proceeds from character appearance days to a local charity.
