If you want a fun place to go you really need to stop by here. with whole family or yourself either or. they looks so real, and a bit scary but in a fun way. smaller kids maybe not a good idea unless you have dad or grandpa carry them we had to do a lot of explaining to our... More

Unlike Madame Tussaud's, one doesn't spend the whole time posing with celebrities (just a little). It's more a series of tableaux of history or movies, and a bit of haunted house thrown in. Enjoyed a great deal.

We paid for all the 3 Ripley's, The wax works, and the Undersea gardens. Paid 75.00 for all 3 not worth it. Maybe just pay for the wax works and that is a maybe.

We had to pay the same for two or three attractions and Wax Works was part of the package. It was ok, but I wouldn't do it again. I expected more and it scared my 6 yr old twin daughters.

This is my son's favorite place to go in Newport. Although we have been through it many times (thanks to season passes) he still gets excited every time. Recently there have also been great updates and it is always fun to see the look on his face when we get to the pirates and then to Johnny Depp at the... More

The price was right; but not a lot of wax figures and many of them are not that great but they are okay. It was fun as I try to go to the wax museum where ever I travel. I've been to quite a few and this was just average.

Probably the closest you'll get to diving or going in a sub to be close to the marine wildlife. Divers interact with the guests when they are in, giving you an awesome experience

Visited as part of the multi attraction ticket and at buy one person get another person free. It's ok and a fun place, but not worth a full price single attraction admission. Wax figures are not the greatest, but I think kids would like it and its a good place to go one time. I do not believe it is... More

Right after you get in there, there are 4 doors, Marilyn Monroe in her dressing room but you can't even open the door wide enough to take a picture! The next 3 doors are sound effects hooked to a door knob on a door that doesn't even open. No wax figures, not even a picture of a recreation! Completly STUPID.... More
