I bought a three way pass for Ripley's, Wax Works, and Undersea Garden. I think I spent around an hour or a bit more on all three combined. Wax Works was probably the most interesting in my opinion. Might be a good way to spend...More

This is NO Madam Tussauds Wax Museum, but still cheesy and fun. Make sure you get discount tickets - we bought the package deal that included Ripleys Believe it or Not, the Wax Museum, and the Undersea Gardens. The exhibits are old and some are...More

Overall it was great for what there was but it was very short so walk slow and really observe each scene. It was a little too dark as I tripped over uneven floors several times because I couldn't see. Took my 8 year old, he...More

Like Ripley's, WaxWorks is nice as it offers something different then what the rest of Bay Boulevard has to offer. Admission to one, gives you access to 3 attractions. Decent value.
