Purchase the All Access pass. It's worth it. We spent over two hours in there, had a great time, and took lots of pictures. When you're done you walk over to the Castle to finish up. You won't be disappointed.

Even the outside of this building is exciting! We had to stop by for a photo op, though we didn't go in. As an artist, if I'm going to spend the money, I have to go to Madame Tussauds for this kind of thing, but this was still so cool to look at from the outside.

Every scene is a perfect set up for a truly glorious photo. Many of the displays are a little dated, but for me that only added to the appeal. We went on a Wednesday and it wasn't crowded at all. Thoroughly enjoyed it and got some epic pics for sure.

Also, as you enter you get your photo in the grip of King Kong.
