Ripley Castle

 

I didn't realize that the main Ripley headquarters was here in St. Augustine. It's an actual castle that has been turned into the Ripley's believe it or not museum.

The castle has a bit of an interesting story. Ripley himself wanted to buy it but could never get it done. After he passed away the Ripley company did eventually purchase it.

Note how shaky the camera work is! This is because I couldn't walk straight. That's the whole point of the spinning tunnel! It is fun however! I walked back and forth in it.
