It was a nice place but it's really old. Regardless, it's maintained well and it's more of an one time visit. Good for any age and people will certainly enjoy this. One of the few fun things around the arlington/Grand Prairie area.

My family and I enjoyed it very much and yes I will revisit. I especially enjoyed it standing next to them and taking pictures as if I was speaking to them.

This is a place that really hasn't changed much over the years. You go to it once to see everything, then later a second time to realize nothing has changed since your first visit.

My husband and I had such a great time here! We did the Ripleys Believe It or Not and Palace of Wax. They were both larger than we thought which is a good thing. You definitely get your money's worth with this place!

This is a really fun place. I really enjoy the various Ripley's exhibits - some fascinating stuff. The wax musuem is really neat and a great opportunity to be creative with photos. Some of the wax figures look so real it's a little creepy! Don't miss the horror/Halloween exhibit - so much fun!

This was a wonderful way to end our trip to Texas! I wish we could have afforded to do the mirror and light mazes too, but the wax museum and the odditorium were a blast! We had so much fun! The wax figures looked so much like the real celebrities, and not only did they showcase celebs, they had exhibits... More

We did the Mirror Maze- this to me by itself was not worth the money, but we thankfully had bought a combo ticket for another attraction as well and so it ended up being a fair price. 5 year old greatly enjoyed it! We also went into the Ripley's Believe It or Not- we have never been in any others,... More

Really liked the wax museum with the current celebrities featured as well as a few older ones including every American president and a lovely Christian section. I found the scary section to be pretty disturbing and would not have taken children in there. It was clearly marked though so families were warned about it. All-in-all, it is a fun place... More
