  • Took my 8 year old here and she loved it. There was a long line but we DID NOT buy tickets ahead and were able to get right in, using the kiosk. I'd rather pay a few dollars more and skip the line...  more »

  • Has a great time!!! The staff were very friendly. I took a lot a great pictures. Buy your tickets online for a better deal. The marvel 4D movie was nice as was the zombie virtual ride. Both were pretty exciting. Great day trip for the whole family. Definitely recommend!!!
  • Very fun afternoon. The figures were amazing to see and very life-like. We ordered our tickets in advance on their website and got a much better deal than at the door. We added the zombie ride and the wax hand to take home and would recommend those activities too.
