Great place. These are so lifelike and they actually speak in their voices ( not where you can see them., but with speakers. Some are animated and wait until you see the nightclub,. What a surprise.

We (2 adults, 1 teen) bought the package for Undersea Garden, Ripley's and The Wax Works. This one was by far the best. Skip the other two. Funny, sometimes scary, weird and interesting. We were cracking up and honestly there were a few screams here and there. It was worth the $$.

If you've been to Madame Tussaud's you will feel ripped off. It's ok... But kinda lame. Look for a groupon or a two-for-one offer

I'm so sorry for my rudeness, but I hated this place. I remember laughing at how freaking terrible it was/is with my family. I wasn't paying for this, so the only thing I wasted was time. The "works" were unrealistic, especially the lord of the rings ones, they try to lure out some money from you throughout the tourist trap,... More

We preferred Wax Works to Ripleys. Take your time in this attraction because it isn't huge and it is once through only! It's family friendly and amusing.

My first visit to the Wax Works and I was not disappointed. Although it was a smaller, and a bit dark with the lighting in some places, the wax figures were very cool. It also included some hands on experiences, and plenty of opportunities to take memorable pictures.I will definitely go back and visit this establishment.

It is kind of cheesy, but the kids love it. I would do the package deal with the Ripleys and find the discount online.

We had fun, it is not big but really cool. When you go through take your time and make sure you see everything.

I took my nieces and grand nephews and we all had a great time. They've barely changed anything in the 30 years since my last visit...and it shows. We had a Groupon so I was okay with the prices, I would have been disappointed if I paid full price.

I enjoyed stopping at the wax museum. We had my 10 year old niece with us and she had a good time. I would do it again!
