Loved all the wax figures they have on display, especially Tyra Banks, Michael Jackson, Prince, Brad Pitt and Angelina....Sam the manager is super awesome and great personality. She is super knowledgeable about the entire place and love taking the tour when she's around.

I am very impressed with the wax images that they made.It looks real. The onlu difference you will notice is of course they are not moving. This attraction is recommended for all ages. My favorite spot was when you can take a picture beside President Trump office.And the Ghost Buster area. My toddler was so scared of the huge Kong,the gorilla face replica.Looks cool to me.

"So realistic"

Wow how many famous people can you fit under 1 roof. So many celebrities, sports stars, policitical figures, movie characters and historical figures all here. Lots more than i was expecting, and you can get your photos with all of them. Some even have hints of how to get the best photo. I feel like i will be filling an album alone with jist this visit. Staff are so friendly, you are not rushed and get to spend as much time in here as possible. Even being English we still knew the majority. Go Spice Girls

"If you cant meet the real ones; wax ones will have to do."

My daughter and I enjoyed our visit. This was our second. Some wax figures were gone replaced by new and upcoming stars I suppose. The wax figures look so real some of them. I'm a Marvel super hero fan so we paid to see the movie. It was a pleasant surprise - during the show. The Ghostbusters area was fun. Some people were scared to venture down the steps. We gathered together as a group and tackled it. A little scary but fun.

"Rather disappointing"
TripAdvisor user rating 2 out of 5
Reviewed August 18, 2017 NEW
If you've been to other cities that have a Madame Tussauds (e.g. London, Amsterdam) this will sure be disappointing. Perhaps if you've never seen some wax figures you'll like it but for what you pay, this place is way overpriced and employees don't seem to care at all about their visitors. Within 30 minutes we had seen it all and we really did not hurry. Apparently this place is about making money, not value for money.
