Don't waste your money. We knew it would be kitch but it seemd dirty and creepy. The figures didn't look like anyone we even recognized and while we were told that the self-guided tour would take 45 minutes, we were out of there in 5. Dated, over priced, and I'm pretty sure it would scare your kids if you were looking for something to keep them entertained.

I purchased the combo ticket from Drew at the Undersea Gardens and it allowed me to also vist Wax Works and Ripleys as well. Wax Works was by far my favorite, Its had exibits from Star Wars, Lord of The Rings as well as many other famous people like Johnny Depp, Michael Jackson, and Big Foot. It's a great place to vist but you must see all three attractions!

Some of the figures looked a lot like who they were suppose to be. Others looked nothing like who they were suppose to be. It was interesting how it was set up. I probably won't visit here again. It's definitely not worth the price.

It's pretty cheesy and very small. Takes about 5-10 minutes to walk through. A couple fun displays, several that are pretty dated. At the end, you spill out into a gift shop (shared with "Ripley's Believe it or Not"). It'll probably take you longer to walk through the gift shop than it did to walk through the Wax Works.
