  • Loved it! Great banter with staff, heaps of info and a wealth of knowledge. Not a bad price, the detail work and weird quirky stuff added to the experience. Parking not far away and cheap also. Cheers!
  • Was quite expensive to get in, part of the price is a guided tour through the torture chamber etc area and the gentleman giving the tour (nice bloke) had a very strong English accent and half of the people with us could not clearly understand what he was saying, the wax figures were all quite old and tired with only a handful having a really good likeness, I think more effort could have been put in to make the "settings" the characters were displayed in more fitting. They could have potentially had more written information on display, points of interest / notable accomplishments etc, made it a more educational experience. The staff were nice and friendly, however I would advise against spending your money here unless there are some substantial improvements * Edited to remove my assumption he was Welsh and add some photos of our visit
