  • The staff at the Wax Museum on Ferny Avenue in Surfers Paradise were all super friendly and informative. I went with wife, and we were directed to look at the figures of famous people first, with some...  more »
  • Pretty boring and alot of the sculptures didn't look like the real people. $93 for 4 of us and we were ready to leave after 5min. Not recommend  more »
  • Longer staying on the Gold Coast, so I went to the wax museum, but a high price considering some good sense. Make sights, alas, I know. May visited the spot in the Hong Kong S.A.R. similar suit too city of Gold Coast accommodation. But if you're travelling with children may be good.

  • The guided tour is good but not for young kids. Most of the wax figures dont look like the real macoy. The enthusiasm of the staff is good.
  • Some wax figures very very good, some quite average & rest in between. Overpriced from what i saw. Chamber of horrors was very aptly named!! Not for the fait hearted or queasy. A very unpleasant experience - in terms of the tortures of the times...
  • Good. Reception lady Elizabeth was good and tour guide lady for torture room was good. It's sad to see those torturing. Remember Jesus went through brutal torturing to save the mankind from sin. He did not do any mistake or sin. That came to my mind while I saw the chamber. Gandhiji was good but he never had flannel on him. Value for money. Thank God for the freedom we have now rather than brutality of previous centuries
  • Was a great place to go see and learnt about the history of way back in the day of how they tortured to people very interesting
  • Visited here as a family of four, adults and early teens. The place isn't an amusement ride but an enjoyable and informative wax museum. The torture tour was good and the guide had a good knowledge of historical tortures. We were in a small group for the tour and he answered questions and explained things well. Really liked it.
