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

Always something new and interesting. A great time for little expense. Close to many other family entertainment venues.

On a Wednesday (early) afternoon, this place was dead, which was awesome because we got this place all to ourselves! The ticket prices aren't too bad, and have combo tickets you can chose from. The Ripley's Believe It or Not museum was very interesting. A lot to see and it took us about 45 minutes to get through it without... More

Get ready to have your heart racing, your pulse pounding. This place is everything it is advertised as being. The wax people could be real people! So lifelike. Believe It or Not is true. Great place to get out of the Texas heat. DO NOT take little kids.

Very interesting place to visit. Ripley's Believe it or not Museum had a bunch of unusual oddities and stories to peruse. Something there to interest everyone. Wasn't too much stuff and certainly enough to hold my interest. The Palace of Wax was also interesting. I wasn't as impressed as some people would be but that is probably because I really... More

So much to see, but not too much. Didn't cost too much and stuff for the whole family to see and enjoy. Don't want to spoil it for anybody, so I can't say too much, but, I highly suggest you check out the tongue rolling part, sooooooooo cool.

My family visited the Louis Tussaud's Wax Museum and Riley's Believe It or Not on a stay-cation for Texas Spring Break. Planned an early visit hoping to avoid crowds and it worked out perfect. We were able to take our time and get some great photos in both areas. Fun trivia at Ripley's - a highlight was the Zoltar machine... More
