Kids enjoyed walking through it, takes about 20-30 mins, it was a lot of fun... You buy a 3 attraction pass for this and Ripleys as well as undersea gardens.

I loved how the old scenes were still there and they put in a bunch of new stuff to look at. and the american idol stage was so fun to be able to sing with the family and pick your own songs.

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.
