The kids wanted to go here so we went. They had fun looking at all the figures but we're talking $100 for a family of 4 to do this. You must wear a mask to enter but you can take it off for pictures then put it back on. The staff was extremely wonderful. Some of the figures are incredible looking. Dale Sr., Sandra Bullock, Samuel L. Jackson are examples of the good ones. Then some you would never know who they were because it looks nothing like them. Overall we did it once to say we've done it but wouldn't do it again just based on ticket prices.

Hollywood Wax Museum was so fun. We saw different celebrities made out of wax it's a amazing sight. Hannah maze of mirrors was also a fun maze me and my husband enjoyed and had lots of laughs while going through the maze. The Zombie break out room my husband finished but I couldn't. I just don't like scary at all lol. You get too do all 3 for a price for 35 dollars and it's very worth your money.

I went to this with low to medium expectations, based on prior experiences with other tourist attractions in the area. I do love a tourist attraction, but Ripley's soured me on the mass-produced franchised attraction. So I'll say that when I bought my ticket and they immediately upsold me on a mirror maze and zombie encounter, I assumed my expectations were met. But everything was well worth it. The additional encounters added a total of five bucks, and as I'll explain later, you want to do those.

The museum itself is great. It's all Hollywood themed, natch, and the figures range from pretty good to amazingly accurate. One great benefit is that they aren't roped off. You can take really close pictures, stand next to them, hold the furnished props to add to the pictures, and really get in close and examine. The theming around the figures is really good as well. Music, backgrounds, it all adds to the experience.

The mirror maze was one of the best I've seen. It's couched in some hokey "save the princess" plot, but when you get to the maze, you'll go through something that's so far beyond a state fair or carnival ride you won't believe it. It's incredibly well-done, and so intricate you may get claustrophobic from being unable to escape. Don't worry, there are emergency exits.

The zombie encounter was something else as well. Be warned, it is LOUD!!! And lots of jump scares. I don't want to give much away, but the plot is essentially Resident Evil-esque. You're in a lab that manufactured a supersoldier serum that goes wrong. Blah blah, lots of zombies.

So enjoy the Hollywood part, but make sure to spend a little more and do the other options. Unless you scare easily.

Not Covid friendly! We went on a Thursday and thankfully we got there early because the amount of people who they allow in was very difficult to socially distance. The line to pay was the only area where it was marked. The hallways of the museum are just too narrow and it was difficult for us to take a picture without blocking the walkway or having someone walk through the shot. Then the gift shop where everyone has to walk through to leave was tiny! I got so nervous with the amount of people in line and walking through that we left and didn’t buy anything. The kids loved it but as a parent trying to stay safe it wasn’t ideal!

This is our 2nd time visiting this museum, the cashiers are a little pushy trying to get you to buy different passes then what you asked for. The photo lady is a little rushy in taking the pictures. Some of the replicas are good and some needs a do over, but it’s fun

My family had a great time visiting the wax museum. I wasn't sold at first because I had never been to one and didn't know what to expect but we spend a couple hours here posing with the figures and making jokes and memories. There's also a laser field interactive game that we all enjoyed. They had tons of characters throughout the museum and the staff was very kind and friendly. The entire building was incredibly clean and well maintained. They have a mirror maze which we did as well and enjoyed. They also have a zombie escape type exhibit which we tried to do but didn't make it passed the first room because it was WAY too scary for my children (ages 10 and 7) even though my son was very excited about the zombie portion of this trip. The staff was kind enough to let us do the mirror maze for a second time because the zombie exhibit was too scary for the kids, so it wasn't like we paid for it and just got nothing. Great experience overall!

I went alone, my family wasn’t interested. It was more fun than I anticipated. The artwork is amazing. You will learn a few things along the way, too. They have a great selection of wax people. Something for older people to induce fond memories all the way to current pop stars, for our kids. Staff and other visitors were friendly and happy to take photos for me.

Took 2 adults and 2 teenagers all of them had fun. All of them were taking selfies with the various famous people in there. All of them said Hollywood Wax Museum was so fun. They loved seeing all the different celebrities made out of wax it's a amazing sight.

To be completely honest I originally was not remotely interested in a wax museum but was my wife made me and I do not regret going. It was a lot more fun than I could have expected. The figures are really well done and there are so many. I would recommend anyone to check it out. Well worth the money and the other attractions were great. I really was surprised at the mirror maze and the zombie haunted house was awesome.

The three of us went here because the weather was rainy and cold. We had a good time and had a lot of laughs but the wax figures did not represent the "star" as well as some of the wax museums I've been to. I had to read the plaque to figure out who about 50 % of the "stars" were. We bought the combo tickets...for $5 more why wouldn't you. We enjoyed it but the figures could be better. The props looked a bit wore and the hats were dirty. We were a little leery about using them.
