We bought combo tickets for the Wax Museum, Mirror Maze & Odditorium. Each was fun. We especially enjoyed the mirror maze because it was more difficult than others we had been to. There were other smaller attractions offered that we didn't buy tickets for. The prices were a bit much, so we had to limit what we did.

Took my nieces from out of town. So much to see and do. Loved the wax figures and all the fun things to read about. Wasn't too crowded. They took a fun picture about half way through that made a great souvenir. Our favorite part was making the wax hand at the end. The staff was friendly everywhere but the... More

Great visit! On our list of things to do for a quick weekend stay-cation. If you enjoy oddities and museums, you will not leave disappointed. My favorite is the wax portion of the museum. We had a blast!

If you have never been to a Ripley's Odditorium or the Wax museum, you need to. This is the second one I have visited. They have so many neat and unusual items and information about things all over the world. The people in the Wax museum seem so real. This one had a room that was full of all of... More

I entered and paid almost $21 to enter into the wax museum. They have Star Trek, actors, Disney characters, US Presidents, singers, Jesus, etc. Took many pictures on my Samsung phone. I would recommend it. They also have an optional Jack the Ripper exhibit at the end which can be scary for kids.

The Ripley's Believe It or Not was bigger than we thought. We actually read the artifacts signs and walls. It can get crowded and towards the end we couldn't really enjoy the rooms because of the layout. We added out the Mirror Maze. We were in there about five minutes and was not worth the money. Enjoy the Ripley's section... More

My wife, granddaughter, and I visited the Ripley’s palace on a cold, rainy day in the MetroPlex. Upon arrival, you are presented with a choice of entering the regular Ripley’s exhibit, the wax museum, the mirror maze, and the laser challenge. We chose to do the regular exhibit and the wax museum for a cost of approximately $62 for two... More

Interesting to see life size wax figures that look so real. I would recommend this to anyone who has never been to a wax museum before. I've even went to the one in San Francisco and it was different than the one in Grand Prairie but I enjoyed both
