Ever wish you were a star? Here’s your chance to experience the celebrity lifestyle and take your turn in the spotlight at Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center.
Located adjacent to the Broadway at the Beach complex, Hollywood Wax Museum is hard to miss. Straight from a famous scene in the original blockbuster “King Kong,” the Hollywood Wax Museum facade features a giant ape scaling a scale model of the Empire State Building. The eye-catching exterior serves as a good intro to what to expect inside the walls – a collection of A-list celebrities in wax form.
After strolling down the red carpet and making a grand entrance, visitors roam the Hollywood Wax Museum like attending a swanky Oscars party. Big-name stars are scattered throughout the attraction, including legends of film, TV, music, sports and pop culture. The wax figures are often depicted in attire from their most famous movie roles and with props from their most popular works.
Hollywood Wax Museum features some of the top stars for fans of all generations, from the Rat Pack of the 1960s to the Brat Pack of the 1980s; from Sylvester Stallone as “Rocky” to Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson; from Arnold Schwarzenegger as “The Terminator” to Dale “The Intimidator” Earnhardt. Families with differing tastes in entertainment can pose with their favorites, and perhaps bridge a cultural gap for parents and children, or even grandparents and grandchildren, learn about each other’s heroes.
The list of celebrities is frequently updated, so you never know what photo op you might run into from one visit to the next. Take selfies with some of the iconic stars ever to take the screen, stage and arena, such as actors Clint Eastwood depicted as Dirty Harry and Johnny Depp as Captain Jack Sparrow, or musical icons Michael Jackson clad in “Bad” attire and Johnny Cash decked out in his trademark black. Divas such as Dolly Parton, Lady Gaga and Katy Perry also sport their unique styles.
Fool your friends on social media and make a scrapbook of all the “celebrities” you meet during your trip to Myrtle Beach at Hollywood Wax Museum. While you are there, be sure to visit sister attractions Hannah’s Maze of Mirrors and Outbreak: Dread the Undead.
