  • Not too many wax figures...some look better than others. Its an interesting one and done kind of place. The plus side was the warm, welcoming and helpful staff. Down side is this place is getting a bit long in tooth and really needs some updates and repairs as well as new attractions to keep it relevant. Overall it was not that high of a price for the combo tickets so worth a one time viewing.
  • Really fun lil place to visit! Gets a tad bit warm in there but nothing to bad. All the figures are pretty cool and was a really good and decent price! Me and my family had fun!
