Ripley Entertainment has acquired the franchised businesses of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Odditorium and the Guinness World Records Museum in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The Canadian operator has also purchased two further Danish attractions: the Mystic Exploratorie and the Hans Christian Andersen’s Wonderful World.

All four family attractions, which have been acquired for an undisclosed sum, are located in the city centre of Copenhagen.

"The four Copenhagen attractions are in a great location in a busy tourist zone, and we are very pleased to be bringing them into our corporate family," said Jim Pattison, president of Ripley Entertainment.
