Live in the NYC metropolitan area? The Ripley’s Believe It Or Not in Times Square is putting on a party May 4th:
From 10am to 1pm, New York Jedi Masters will host 30 minute Jedi training classes showcasing light saber techniques and moves made popular in the famous film series by George Lucas. Classes are free with paid admission and each Jedi-in-training will receive a lightsaber and a Saber Academy certificate upon completion. Online class registration is available now through May 2 at http://www.ripleysnewyork.com. Space is limited; participation will be confirmed in the order that it is received. The first 15 fans to register will receive a free Ripley’s gift bag.
Throughout the Odditorium, guests will be greeted by Ripley’s staff dressed as knights and dark lords, witness live lightsaber duels by New York Jedi members, and have the opportunity to take pictures with the Jedi Masters. Under the front marquee, prospective Jedi Knights can test their Star Wars knowledge with a series of trivia questions, such as famous quotes, name that character, heroes and villains, and more. Guests who answer correctly will receive 20% off admission.
“We do a lot of unbelievable things at Ripley’s, from awe-inspiring performers to out-of-the ordinary artifacts from around the globe,” said Michael Hirsch, president and general manager of Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square. “On May 4th, we are making a giant leap by bringing a galaxy far, far away to Times Square.”
