That place is a rip off,very dark inside and the wax figures are terrible! Not worth the $15.00 ticket per person... A waste of time! PERIOD!!!

Another tacky, touristy, utterly tasteless trap, and I love it! It's full of famous faces, internationally known and local legends, and they're all just a little creepy. Still, take in your sense of whimsy and you'll enjoy it.
