“Fun for the kids!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013 via mobile

My boyfriend and I used out Tesco clubcard points to pay for this so it was £8 each instead of nearly £30. By sure if it would be worth the full price!
Lots of interesting fun facts.
A really cool mirror maze and best of all laser test - dodge the lazers.
Good fun!

“Pretty Cool”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

I went to the Wax Museum some time ago and it wasn't bad. Most of the figures were very lifelike and looked much like the people they are supposed to be. I go into the lobby area occasionally with my children and they take pics by the new statues. When my youngest son was 5 we took him to see the John Cena statue and he was POSITIVE that it was really John Cena. If you're looking for something to occupy an hour or so of your time then I'd go here it's cheap and entertaining.

“Not worth the money if you only go to one attraction.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

We were pressed for time so we only visited the Ripley's Believe it or Not Museum. I had been to one before so i knew what to expect, but my boyfriend had never been. He really enjoyed it! I wasn't as impressed, but there were some interesting things to see. It was fun taking pics with the largest tire and walking through the lighted tunnel...that was my favorite thing...I loved it!! My boyfriend almost got sick...If you have never been to one, it is probably pretty cool and worth the money...Definitely get combo tickets...much better value. We just didn't have the time.

“A little boring, but child liked it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2013 via mobile

My daughter thought it was cool, but overpriced. Get the combo ticket with all 6 attractions will save you money
