Elvis "Waxtravaganza" at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas

If Elvis Presley had lived he would be 75 years old this year. To commemorate the 33rd anniversary of his passing, on Monday, August 16, 2010 the world famous wax museum, Madame Tussauds Las Vegas, located at the Venetian Hotel and Casino, held a special Elvis “Waxtravaganza” from 11 a.m. - 1 p.m for visiting guests.

The event featured an Elvis display that showcased a “young Elvis” with sideburns and dressed in a replica of his black leather outfit, a special “Elvis DJ” booth in front of the attraction, a second Elvis on display inside the “Viva Vegas” room, and the chance for visiting guests to “Karoake With The King” inside the “On-Stage” room. As usual, guests were encouraged to pose next to and have their photo taken alongside Elvis's wax likeness as well as any of the other celebrity wax figures on display throughout the museum.

In addition, all Elvis “tribute artists” and impersonators, and those who showed up dressed to look like “The King of Rock n” Roll” were admitted free. For fans and others who are interested in taking home an Elvis accessory or souvenir, the attraction gift shop features an array of items available for purchase.

Regular General Admission is $25 per adult, but Madame Tussauds Las Vegas is running a $10 local special for Nevada residents until Monday, September 6, 2010.

Summer hours have also been extended until 11 p.m. through Labor Day weekend.
