Lots of newer displays. The entire area was very clean. Buying a joint ticket with Ripleys makes it more worth the money. Parking is a premium as this was a very busy area.

Due to Covid they are to space groups going in , this didn't happen everyone would be waiting in an attraction while they were shoving more people in. This in turn made it hard to enjoy and experience the whole thing. People would get upset and ask you to continue to move and would let you read anything there are a lot of new attractions to see and enjoy but when your rushed there really isn't a point in coming to enjoy time with your family

I have put it as 3 stars until I've actually be able to see the inside. Ripley's and the wax museum are closed until spring. Wish it was advertised. I have heard good things about this place and will go back to see it when the renovations are done!

It's cool, to an extent. Some of the wax figures are incredibly realistic and some of them are terrible. It's entertaining enough, but there are barely any wax figures, so they play it up with extra props. For actors they have the guy that's Spock from Star Trek, Arnold Schwarzenegger (as Terminator), Mike Meyers (as Austin Powers), and a handful of Star Wars cast members in a scene from one of the movies. They have Batman, Joker, and another villain. They also have a freakishly realistic figure of Johnny Depp that has its own whole section for heaven only knows why. I have to say, whether you like it or not, it IS entertaining. For people who will actually enjoy it and think it's cool, it's best suited for kids 10 and under.

Even if you don't go through the exhibit don't miss the gift shop. Every time we are there my daughter gets a new hand made out of wax, so cool!

There isn't much to see here. It's apparently trying to appeal to tourists, but is a big disappointment. We bought an annual pass as locals, but one run through (emphasis on run) was enough.

Phony looking and a disappointment. This place doesn't come anywhere near the wax museum in Hollywood.

This facility needs to be upgraded. The attractions were old, the place was dirty. Same wax works as 15 years ago.
