Overall fun but you have to do a few of the attractions to justify cost.

The wax museum alone or the 'Believe it or not' alone are not very exciting and are short displays but if you do yourself a favor and buy the ticket for both along with the mirror... read more

Overall this place was an okay stop - yet the cost was a bit much. We expereinced the wax museum and the Ripley's museum. Both pretty average, overall nothing too outstanding. The wax museum was the worst I've been to. We like to stop at Wax museums in different states and this one was pretty lackluster. ALTHOUGH, the horror movie... More

The wax museum alone or the 'Believe it or not' alone are not very exciting and are short displays but if you do yourself a favor and buy the ticket for both along with the mirror made you won't be disappointed. The maze was so much fun, there is a 3D option to make it even more challenging. The wax... More

We came in the afternoon. Come earlier so you can see everything. The staff told us We could come back and see the rest. The tree slice in front was unbelievably old, 350 bc. The grandchildren were thoroughly entertained. There were exhibits for the real young and older. Some of the exhibits were interactive that the children really enjoyed. The... More

We've been coming here for years and still enjoy visiting. It is a little pricey, but the kids loved it. I recommend if you have kids 5 and up.

For the price, it's just not worth it. The staff was nowhere to be seen, the exhibit were average, and the was museum needs some attention (hands, costumes, falling off or on the wax pieces wrong). This was incredibly disappointing and I would not recommend it.

It is a lot of fun in one single place, we can spend a whole day there and still not be finished with all they have to offer! It has a Museum of interesting weird things, a wax museum with lots of famous "people". You can even make a Wax sculpture to buy and take home with you!

Ok so of course I posed with just about every wax figure. My favorite thing surprisingly was to see all the presidents side by side and compare. People were so much shorter in the early years:)
