The Venetian – Resort, Hotel and Casino
Sure, Elvis was a really strange celeb. But where do you go when you want to see the strangely real celebs? The first U.S. incarnation of the London original, Madame Tussaud’s proves that Brits do at least one thing better — wax. Unlike the hideously cheesy wax statuettes that abound in every Americana museum, these statues are cheery, lifelike and almost cool. And here is one VIP room in Vegas you’ll actually be able to access, so don’t miss the party with Whoopi, Oprah and even Mr. Jennifer Aniston, a.k.a. the waxy Mr. Pitt. You can swing with Babe Ruth in the sporting section, rock with Elton in the Muzak area, and, of course, pay homage to Frank in the land of Vegas Legends. Put on a dress and Marry “George Clooney” in our Vegas style chapel. Don the signature bunny ears, and party with “Hugh Hefner”! Share the spotlight with “Cameron Diaz.” Become a member of the “Blue Man Group” and play alongside them on their genuine PVC instruments. Test your basketball skills by going head-to-chest against “Shaquille O’Neal” experience. Get on stage and audition for “Simon” in our “American Idol” experience. Madame Tussaud’s makes YOU an instant celebrity – encouraging you to kiss, hug or mug with your favorite movie stars, musicians, sports heroes and Las Vegas legends. General admission is a cool $25, but that includes all the touching, pinching and cavorting you could possibly do with a waxen poseur. And since they’ve got to keep that wax in a comfortable climate during the raging Vegas summer, this can be one of the coolest places to be.
