Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Unveils Wax Figures of President-Elect Trump

By November 11, 2016Company News

The first life-size wax Trump is now on display at Ripley’s Orlando Odditorium; others are headed for Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks

trump-wax-01Orlando, Fla. (November 11, 2016) – They’re huuuuuge, they’re big league and they’ve been hand- crafted by the F/X team at Ripley’s Believe It or Not!

They are the very first wax figures of Donald Trump. One is now on display at Ripley’s Orlando Odditorium on I-Drive. It is in the lobby and can be seen and photographed for free – but only for a limited time. Just as in real life, the wax Trump is polling at about 50% – loved by some Ripley’s visitors, loathed by others.

trump-wax-02Ripley’s created three wax figures of the President-elect. They will go on display at Louis Tussaud’s Palace of Wax in Grand Prairie, Texas, and Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks in San Antonio, Texas and Niagara Falls, Ontario. Ripley Entertainment owns and operates the three Louis Tussaud’s Waxworks.

Ripley’s F/X team started creating the first Trump figure about four months ago. Each is sculpted by hand by a team of artists, using photographs to create the likeness. Each figure takes about six weeks to complete.

Win or lose, the Trump figures were destined for Louis Tussaud’s; after Tuesday’s election results they’ll now stand with other presidential wax figures.
