This place is amazing. There are multiple things tondo here besides the wax museum. The figures are very life like. Located right off the interstate. A lil pricy, but worth every penny.

It was fun but, slightly disappointing cause they didn't have certain celebs I thought they would but, it was fun. Was figures, history, mirror maze (was the best), laser race and of course the wax hands.

A little pricey but we had a lot of fun. It was 80$ for two attractions for 3 adults. Some of the wax figures looked really good, some not so much. It was much bigger than it looked. Great time.

The family and I went here and had a great time..The Ripleys part of it is really interesting..Lots of cool oddities and facts..Wax museum was fun because you can take photos w the figures..Thought some of them could have been a little more realistic,but still a lot of fun for the family

The visit was very nice! It was certainly a very good choice for a Sunday super hot day @ Texas! The mirror maze was very nice, entertaining. The wax museum is nothing like the Madame Tussaud when it comes to renown artists, actors, etc, but, the regular scenes about the bible characters, old west were very nice!!

This is one of the best Wax Museums I've seen outside of huge cities. The horror section is what sealed the deal. It's so much larger than I expected. I thought it was well worth the money. However, if you have a small child (or adult) that is easily frightened or sensitive to strobes, skip the horror section. I didn't... More

We are so excited that you had an amazing time at Ripley's! We are very proud of the Fear section of our Wax Museum. If you love horror, we would love for you to return during Halloween when we take things up a notch and may just give you a fright! Thanks for stopping in, and please feel free to... More

We took my boyfriend's grandson and had a really fun time - I actually think we enjoyed it more than he did. Lots of interesting wax figures and the Ripley's Believe It Or Not was the best! Fun gift shop with lots of cool items. I've lived in the area for years but haven't visited in decades. Worth the price... More
