I enjoyed this a lot. It was kind of cheesy, but in a fun, good way. I especially liked the horror movie displays. Very wheelchair friendly and lots of opportunities for photos. Very small children my find it too scary. Friendly staff

This place is dingy and cramped. It is very expensive and boring. I know the guy who designed it. He was a snob.

Put your money in your pocket, drive across the bridge and go to Hatfield Marine Science Center. Better entertainment and free admission. (Donation suggested) Wax Works, Ripley's, and Undersea Gardens are overhyped and cheesy at best.

If you are going to see The Wax Works, you can get a three-attraction pass that will save you money. This was our third attraction and our favourite of the three. Seeing the various celebrities brought back lots of memories. If you want, you can...More

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
