A subsidiary of the Jim Pattison Group, Ripley Entertainment operates 95 attractions under a dozen brands around the world, which include Believe It or Not! Odditoriums, aquariums and Guinness World Records museums.
Ripley bought the land from Orlando Equity Partners LLC (OEP), an affiliate of Southwood Development Company in Atlanta. It was part of a 55-acre parent tract, but the deed filed Wednesday in Orange County specifies that the sale is only for the property fronting on Universal.
OEP also filed a supplement to the reciprocal easement and cost-sharing agreement for the parent tract reiterating that Ripley is to receive 20.4 acres, while OEP would retain 30.3 acres.
