“Too real!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

The kids had a blast. They wanted a picture with all of the figures. Awesome/creepy place to visit with kids.

“If you can't get to Hollywood this week...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Check out some famous faces here! I checked it out with my kids YEARS ago. As with any place of this type, my favorite section is always the horror movie genre.

“It's worth seeing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The wax works is pretty awesome to see.The figures look so real you think they're going to reach out and grab you. Take your camera so you can get pics of yourself next to Marilyn Monroe or Elvis. There of course is a gift shop at the end.

“need a flashlight”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

The place was very dimly lit to conceal the poor resemblances and bad wigs. Good thing they had name cards.
