Brought both my kids here and did the mirror maze and the Oddities displays. Great for 10 yr old, a bit scary for 5 yr old.The Oddities had outrageous, weird facts. My 10 year old enjoyed the tornado simulator. Fun, but for a bit older kids not the youngsters.

We had tickets for Ripley's and the Wax Museum. Both were fine, but we enjoyed Ripley's more. Some of the wax figures seemed pretty far off from reality. Overall, it made for a nice afternoon out of the heat.

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.
