  • 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 »

  • This was the first time I had been to a wax museum and I never knew how accurate all the sculptures would be. Although it was a bit unsettling it was a great experience. All the different periods in time and all the different genres of famous celebrities made for a unique experience. Each section of the museum had props that let you take photos and fit into the scene which was fun. It was especially cool if you found a celebrity you really liked! It did cost a bit much but when you're on vacation you are sometimes willing to spend that much. They do offer some package deals so you could try and save some money by bundling other things to do in the area as well. If you're on a tight budget I wouldn't suggest going here first but if you have some money to spend and want a unique experience I would try this place out!
  • This was a lot of fun. Some of the wax figures didn't exactly hit the mark on looking like their representation (Hulk Hogan & Matt Damon come to mind) but there are some that are incredibly spot on and detailed. They have a lot of props you can put on for photos and the add-on of going out to the rooftop with King Kong was great for an awesome view of Pigeon Forge. Would definitely recommend this.
  • Amazing experience. Lots of celebrities. Great fun for all ages. I'd suggest doing the VIP package. Just a few dollars more and you can have family fun that lasts all day. A wax museum, mirror maze, 4D ride, and zombie experience are all super fun. Even if your an adult. Highly recommend
  • Been here twice in the last 2 months. Had a great time taking pics and acting goofy with family and friends. It's 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.
  • This was very cool to "see" what some stars look like. I thought the horror section was extremely realistic. Loved going up to the top for a view of the city with Kong. Being able to use props to take selfies was awesome!
