"Fun evening out"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed January 21, 2020 NEW
We came here in an evening as only a ten minute walk from our hotel. When we got in we wasn’t sure how to go past the first part of all the wax works then we were taken up in a lift and hope you like heights as your taken up looking down to the lights of the street below you and some people couldn’t look down. It was lots of fun we really enjoyed it and got the sight saver pass to save some money. The only thing I’d say is to have easier signs to know which way to follow the museum as on the second stage we were waiting at another lift then noticed you walk down around the corner so not easy when you aren’t familiar with somewhere. We brought some New York hoodies from the shop as on special offer for 10 dollars each so a lot cheaper than the shops abc worth a look. Visiting here broke up the evening and glad we visited and the closest I will come to afternoon tea with our lovely queen and meeting the lovely duke and duchess of Cambridge lol

"The best Madame Tussauds I've ever been"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed January 21, 2020 NEW
I've been to a few Madam Tussauda and this was by far the biggest and best one I've ever been to. There was also chances to buy access to a 10 minute 4D Marvel Avengers film for $6 and $8 to play an interactive 7D game which was a zombie type game. The staff were lovely and there's a bar in there with offers on drinks and cocktails in a night club with wax celebs scattered around which was a mint touch. It's located in time square, easy to find and free to enter with the New York Pass with no reservation required you just turn up. Enjoy!

"Up-dating statues"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed January 01, 2020 NEW
It had a nice entrance with Brad Pitt and you could say it was quite good but you will realize that all the statues represent all characters and they are not up dated. So, if your daughter is looking for a statue of Shawn Mendes, don't waste your time because it won't be there.
