Package deal is best bet

They offer a package deal for 5 or 6 different attractions involving Ridleys and Guinness. We had fun but I think it was overpriced by about 30%.

This is what we wanted to see, bought the combo to save money. It was fun. Favorite part was the scary tour part. My Husband thought it was funny when I jumped. Would definitely go again.

Neither of us were interested in the wax museum nor the 4D theater but the combo price with Ripley's was too good to pass up so we came back the next day to do both. I'm so happy we did too! If it had just been wax figures it wouldn't have been fun but they have stuff to wear to... More

First visit to a wax museum. Surprised how unreal they look. Kids liked the superhero ones. I liked the historical ones with some information the most. Can get through it pretty quickly - like 20 minutes.

After going to big and fun wax museums in Cali, this falls short; but on its own, its a fun time. Celebrities here, presidents there, important Mexican figures over there, fairy tales that way, scary movie scenes down there, etc. The accuracy of the faces with the stars and idols is sub-par, but the scenes set up for photos are...

Got in as part of a combo ticket with Ripleys. It was pretty cool. Some of the statues need updating. It's in Texas and there were no former presidents from Texas there, only the current president had a wax statue.

It's OK don't think there's anything better after seeing the Madame Tussauds in Las Vegas. I like how they have some childhood characters from books to see.

It's a fun thing to do. A lot of the figures didn't look like the actual people, but still, a very fun thing to do.

Haven't ever been to a wax museum. It was fun in there with some interactive stations. But once was enough here. There were celebrities, different "scenes" in history and lots to look at.
