Pleasantly surprised at how much there was to do! Even more pleasantly surprised about the generous military discount given to our family.

Came with my 23 & 4 year olds. They both enjoyed it. The scary maze was too much for the little one, but I enjoyed this exhibit. I think they shouldn't charge for each exhibit separately, it's not that great.

This is one place that the name explains it all,. BELIEVE it or NOT! A lot of history is there to learn, or you can just look and enjoy the craftsmanship of making wax figures look like real people. There is so much to see, and then another part is dedicated to the World famous book: Ripley's Believe It Or... More

Several fun activities you can do with the kids where everyone has a good time. Although some of the wax figures need help in the wax museum (which is the only reason I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5), We still had great fun getting up close and taking photos with all the "celebs." There just aren't that many... More

My husband and I went with our two granddaughters (ages 12 & 17) today. Each of us had a really fun time! We went through the wax museum, the odditorium, the mirror maze and also had a wild ride in the moving theater, which featured two movies. The person who greeted us and explained how everything worked, Brenda, was fabulous... More

If you have not been there, then plan this for a day that is hot or cold or wet to be outside. Some things were worth seeing at least once. I liked the "Robots" best.

We breezed through the mirror maze pretty fast but it was still fun and harder than fair mirror mazes. The wax museum was impressive in variety though some of the characters were too skinny or just not quite right. The variety included pop stars, actors, fairy tales, cartoons, presidents, heroes and villains in history, life of Jesus Christ, and a... More
