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...

This is an excellent experience for families. They offer a deal if you buy the tickets online and you can get in quickly and avoid lines. The staff there is friendly as well.

We got the combo of four things so that's everything there. It was $29 for adults $22 for kids. It was all fun. The scary part of the wax museum was pretty scary. I wouldn't take littles through it. There is a pass through for those who don't want to go through it. I do not enjoy scary movies. In... More

My 9 year old loved it and I did too. We visited the Wax Museum, Ripley's and the Mirror maze. Ripley's is a lot of fun, Not much has changed since my last visit, probably before there were internet review sites. You still learn something every time you go, although I will agree with another post that mentions that this... More
