With the opening of Red Carpet wax museum at i-City in Shah Alam, Malaysia now has its very own answer to Madame Tussauds.
The Facebook and Instagram generation of Malaysia will love Red Carpet because it gives you the opportunity to snap your photo next to your favourite superstars or even royalty.
The wax characters cover everything from K Pop to royalty, Hollywood to Bollywood and even the race tracks of Sepang to the hallowed grass turf of the Nou Camp in Barcelona.
You can instagram your photo sitting next to John Travolta (as I did), you can shoot a pic of yourself berating Barack Obama or even stand toe to toe with Rambo, the Terminator or heavy weight champ Muhammad Ali.
Billed as Malaysia's first megastar interactive wax museum the Red Carpet showcases its artistically designed wax works in six different themed zones:
In days gone by people with extreme bodily parts or who were assumed to have freakish features used to be paraded in the circus, these days they are more likely to be found in the Guinness book of records.
The Red Carpet world records zone hosts many characters such as the lady with the longest tongue in the world and it is so long it looks like it would be more suited to the genus of the lizard world.
There is a waxworks of the guy with the largest mouth in the world easily housing a coke can in his oral cavity and another of a rather buxom lady with the largest natural breasts in the world.
What gives this the wow factor is these are life size models of genuine people and not creations from some form of computer generated imagery.
Seeing the life size waxworks of these record breakers is much more interesting than reading the boring book or looking at record breaking images on the internet.
The world icons are good but I'm unsure of wide spread appeal to see world leaders in wax however, it does give a good opportunity to be caught on celluloid scolding Barack Obama or his presidential ilk.
On the subject of politicians there was a dearth of wax replicas of our local Malaysian politicos with only Tuan Abdul Rahman in Medeka pose there to be seen.
Other noticeable absentees were local movie and pop stars and even P.Ramlee didn't make the grade to wax which I found a little disappointing.
On the sporting front world badminton champion Lee Chong was flying the flag for Malaysia but I was surprised at the absence of Nicole David the world squash champion.
Motor sports were well represented with Michael Schumacher and Jorge Lorenzo leading the way for the petrol heads.
Some of the international celebrities were really life like and I really adored the Audrey Hepburn pose in the all stars cafe.
A few other notable Hollywood greats were Marilyn Monroe, Anjelina Jolie with hubby Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp and James Bond himself Daniel Craig.
One wax works that is proving very popular with the ladies is the muscle bound body of American wrestler and movie star John Cenna minus his shirt and displaying ripped muscles in a body building pose.
Red Carpet wax museum is a welcome addition to the Selangor tourism sector and its diversity a boon to the growing list of i-City tourist attractions.
However with an entry fee of RM80 for a Malaysian adult I think this is a bit over priced and an entrance ticket adjustment down could be just what is required to get this place to really take off.
