Madame Tussauds Wax Museum
Is part of the Orlando Eye complex on International Drive. It was … OK. I’ve been to these before and they always impressed me as a lot of hype with little substance. This one at least dressed things up a bit and had interesting facts about each of the celebs that were exhibited.
What hasn’t changed is some of the wax figures in some cases were pretty good (Einstein, Edison, Obama, ET, Shrek) and in others a little creepy (Trump, Elvis to list a couple). You could pose with the figures and even where some of the iconic clothing, wigs etc. to make the photo look better. I can’t be the only one that thinks putting on hats/wigs that have been on countless heads in a climate that is known for humidity is…..what’s the word I’m looking for….Eeewwww! But it was interesting overall. I have a pic of my wife riding with ET on the bicycle. I thought it was hilarious that they had an exhibit with former president Obama and current President Donald Trump in the same room. Obama’s statue was very well made and life-like. President Trump’s statue was really creepy and looked like the guy from the 1979 movie Phantasm.
Despite my preconceived notions of what to expect, I enjoyed this more than I thought.
