  • Some wax figures were better than others . Save your money for other attractions . Just my honest opinion .

  • We paid for the VIP thing, we got to go through the museum as well as the 3 attractions next door and we got to actually go onto the roof with the giant gorilla on top. It was very interesting, I wish they had even more stuff in there like a superhero section possibly, but there was no shortage of things to look at and props to use to take pictures with the figures. Overall I probably would not pay for the VIP pass again, yeah we got the other attractions but the museum alone was the best part really, the rest was just fun to experience but nothing amazing
  • To me, a lot of the wax statues didn't do a great job of encapsulating the celebrities they were modeled after. Some were definitely better than others, but none quite blew me away. I did enjoy the props paired with a lot of the stations, though. They made for some fun photo ops. Oh, and we had opted for the add-on rooftop access, which didn't really feel like it was worth the money.
  • Fun place. Most of the figures were spot on!! Some looked so real, I thought they were going to start talking. I don't know who does their figures but....wow...they are good. I hope they get a lot more in. Will stop by every year. Also got an adorable lunch box with the Wicked Witch of the West from Wizard of Oz on it from their gift shop!!
  • Doing crazy poses with celebrities was fun.I got some pretty funny shots with my husband. The view from the top was well worth seeing. Had a great time.
  • Been visiting Pigeon Forge the past 3 years since 2013 when my pop-pop who rasied me passed away & the family decided to take a vacation! Don't no if well be able to afford it this year! But saving to come back soon. This was the first place we went the first night being in Tennessee. After the 9+ hour drive the family looked at me to figure something to do since it was late...so I remembered seeing this on the way in & googled it seen it was open late & we went! I kinda wish we would have waited for another day because I honestly could have spent ALL DAY in there! Tickets werent pricey & we got the combo tickets for this & the mirror maze. Hope to come back soon.
