Super fun!

Very fun place to visit no matter your age. Will be going back soon as they often change the wax figures.

When you think of Ripley's you expect to see lots of oddities on display, not just posters, photos and videos. The Palace of Wax was more fun. I'll have to admit they squeezed a lot of activities and displays into their building, but is a bit pricy for what you see. Lots of families with kids. Most is not appropriate... More

My son and I went on one of the many recently rainy days here in Texas. It was fun, and a little cheesy, but take it for what it is. I was slightly disappointed in the wax museum as the quality didn't seem up to par with some of the other Tussaud's museums, but overall it was still good fun.... More

My bf and I were both very disappointed with the wax museum. Hardly any of the figures looked like they who the were supposed to look like. I've been to good wax museums such as the Madam Tussaud's London location and this Texas location is simply not up to par... not even remotely close. It wasn't just the poor paint... More

I volunteer with Big Brothers Big Sisters and took my little there. We spent most of our time in the believe it or not section. Ripleys has little quizzes & memorizing games, there are TVs with short video clips scattered throughout, and a few fun interactive bits and exhibits. We really enjoyed the mirror maze. All in all, it is... More

I was really disappointed! For the amount it cost to get in, I think it should have been twice the size. I was not impressed at all and I am actually sorry we spent over $100 for our family to go. That being said, I may have hyped it up in my head which left me a little more disappointed... More

I had high hopes for this visit. The place is HUGE further exciting me but after making our way through the entire place, not very impressed. One building, 4 admission fees. You have to pay for the laser room, ripleys, wax hall & hall of mirrors. Don't waste your time with the laser room, 2 minutes of your life you'll... More

This is a great place to find out weird facts and very educational. The mirror maze was really fun and made you question yourself where you were going but very fun. The laser room was a bit short but the wax museum was very entertaining. The one strange thing which I didn't mind was the religious phase of the museum.... More

We took the kids here for a day and spent a small fortune. Luckily we found some Groupons to make it more affordable. The wax museum was what you would expect, wax figures of notable celebrities of recent eras. There was a magic show in the lobby that day the kids enjoyed for free. The kids seemed to enjoy the...
