We spent 2 hrs here with our grandsons (ages 9 & 13). Mirror maze was a lot of fun. Enjoyed the Wax Museum. The boys were amazed at how lifelike the wax sculptures were. There were some that they didn't know but many that they did. We did the scary section & it was creepy ( not recommended for small... More

CHEESY CHEESY...the wax is just that and very poorly made and resemblence. Pieces broken, lighting bad so when you try to take a picture you get the glare. Dusty and dirty. The food is nothing but bad. Very expensive for what you get and the lines were very long and moved slowly. Skip it.

They have five attractions to enjoy. The entire group enjoyed them all. The mirror maze was a lot of fun and so was the laser maze. The 7D interactive movie was enjoyable. The wax museum and Ripley's Believe It or Not was educational. It is a great place on a rainy or hot day.

I took a lady friend who has never been. We must have picked the wrong day as it was running wild with little kids. It isn't as nice as it use to be years ago when I visited. The manager told me they have to bring in people to touch up the wax figures of the stars as kids scrape... More

Thanks you for visiting Ripley's with your friend! We are happy to know that you've visited our attraction before. Our wax figures are always being touched up due to damage, and we try to get them fixed as soon as possible.

We surprised our ten year old with a visit here thinking the "oddities" would entertain and interest him, but it was just too creepy and he didn't even make it all the way through the Odditorium. There were several children from daycare groups there who also thought it too scary and had exited without completing the tour. My husband, who... More

Thanks you so much for choosing our attraction to spend time with your family! We do have several daycare groups that come in the mornings, and by the afternoon time they start to leave the museum. The "Fear" section that displays characters from horror films is completely seperate from the Palace of Wax, and the Ripley's Museum. It's an optional... More

Purchased Groupon's on whim and did not regret it. The 7D movies were incredibly fun. The hand mold was awesome. The Mirror Maze was ok for me. Maybe because I've been in so many. If your new to Mirror Mazes, it may be perfect. Didn't get to visit the Wax Museum, but will next time. Great for all ages and... More

It's not really worth the price they ask for regular admission, but if you can find a deal it's not bad. My 8 year old has mild autism so part of the believe it or not was rough for her because she would get freaked out, but she loved the wax museum part. She's really into church, so having the...
