This was very cool I would highly suggest getting the package deal for the other attractions near by. This has amazing detail and the rooms are set up to complement the wax figures. My fav was near the end... You get to touch his finger!!

this was okay. some interesting things to see. about half of the famous characters were instantly recognizable. the others i had to check. hitchcock looked like he could have came to life at any moment and golum was so realistic he could have been in a movie

Me and my now fiance both enjoy the coast. We went on our first day over 2 years ago now. We paid the pricey price. Went to all 3 of the attractions and this one is one we will probably never go to again. Once is enough, it's kind of freaky and thats coming from 2 adults. Nothing ever seems... More

This is only the 2nd wax museum i have been to. Wasn't impressed expected a little bit more. Weird mix of characters. Would not go back. Might be fun for older kids little dark and scary for younger children.

Parts of this attraction were interesting but not enough to go back again. A lot of this would likely be too scary for younger kids. It's like a weird mix of wax figures, movie scenes, and a haunted house. If you are really intent on seeing it buy the single ticket (not the three attraction pass - see my other... More

There are many wax figures of stars and some of different things. Not as realistic as madam Tussauds by all means.

This is a place I will only visit once. It isn't interesting enough to visit again. Did like the American Idol area where you could sing for the judges. The lifelikeness of the wax statues is impressive. Once through is enough for me though.

We absolutely loved this wax museum! The figures were made to look more real than most wax museums. Price was discounted when purchasing The Wax Works, Aquarium and Ripley's together and it was very reasonable!

Kids had fun, I laughed through the whole thing. Admission is a little steep for what you get to see, but the kids will have a good time.
