  • Our visit here was probably the biggest disappointment of all the things we have done on the Gold Coast. I take some responsibility for not checking it out more but I was expecting from the outside di...  more »
  • A fun place for a stroll. A lot of people. You can buy a lot of souvenirs. stores offer different products. sellers are not bothersome.

  • Overpriced and uninteresting, this place has extremely fake looking sculptures as if made by the dropouts that tried to learn how professional wax sculptures were made but were stoned the whole time when making them. The videos were horribly dated, (from the 90s i think). The only thing that's not bad is the lazer beam room.
  • Pretty good. Lots and lots of cool stuff to look at. The replica of a laser sensor security room to go through was good fun. Probably didn't have as much stuff for the kids at the start of the tour to get them involved as we'd like.
  • Great once again! Had been 8 years and will definitely go back again. So interesting and I came in 6th place on the laser challenge coarse haha loved it.
  • Place is pretty cool really. If around the area defo check it out. Has some pretty cool and interesting things inside and you can choose whether or not to believe it as the name says. Walk around at your own pace, there is alot of stuff to see and without giving too much away there are a few things inside that 1 will make you laugh and keep you amused for a while watching other people, and the other is bringing out the mission impossible side of you! Check it out!
  • Well... Actually pretty good and interesting. I seems dull outside, but the inside is very good. And you learn a lot.
