  • We were pretty impressed with the wax museum and had a lot of fun taking pictures with the figures. We also did the house of mirrors and the 2 shooting rides. The mirror room was pretty cool and had f...  more »
  • The wax pieces were extremely life like. Go at your own pace. Take as many pics as you. want. Gift shop available.  more »
  • We enjoyed this museum. They are not the best wax copies but fun to go through and pose for pictures with them. We have been here a few times. I would recommend this for a fun day.  more »

  • We took the kids there and bought the “all access pack” that allowed us to walk through the museum, mirror maze and a 5D movie. The museum was neat. For the most part each celebrity looked pretty close to their real life (as much as wax can). However, there are a few that looked pretty different. There is a good range of celebrities across many generations so it’s good for all ages. You can take pictures with all of them and some even have props. The mirror maze was neat. It’s a little confusing as far as from one maze to the next but it appears everyone ends the same place (just not sure if different routes sees different things?). They give you cooking gloves to wear as to not leave finger-prints on the mirrors. The last part of the pack is a choice between two 5D interactive movies (you shoot for high score). You have a choice between robots of wear-wolves. For the super competitive people, a side note - treat the “gun” as a pistol, not an automatic...your finger will get tired but your score will be higher! Last but not least, if you get the all access pass, you get to go to the observation deck, at the top, and look out over the strip. Have fun!
  • Such a cool experience and the wax was sooo realistic on a lot of the actors and actresses. Pricing was also fair and would def recommend to upgraded to the other section that has the zombie apocalypse and shooting games. Very well laid out and fun for the whole family. We all loved it!
  • Not a bad place to visit, but I suggest getting tickets to both places (museum and castle attraction in the same parking lot) and use coupons- it's really not worth the time or money to go through just one attraction. BUT beware when going through wax museum – there is a resort booth setup mid-way through that offered us free tickets to several attractions and free breakfast to “sight-see” at their resort. They charged us a $20 refundable deposit that would be returned after our visit. Needless to say, it turned out to be one of those 90 minute timeshare deals - after we realized, we called to cancel but they would not refund our money. I am surprised the museum allows them to setup in their place and bother their customers while they are on vacation. I did not pay money to be scammed out of more money!!
  • Blonde headed heavier set lady on the mirrors side was super rude! We came here on a family vacation hoping to have fun. We however will not be back there. If it wasn't for the rude lady I might have given more stars. The actual wax building was very neat and the staff In that building were very helpful seeing as how we had never been there before.
  • A two-story wax museum, one of the largest wax museum in the United States. The building is a tribute to the U. S. film industry and the artists who have become part of American culture and includes a Hollywood version of Mount Rushmore and a six-story high Empire State Building being scaled by the Great Ape of Pigeon Forge. It has replicas of celebrities in film, television and music.
