Stars Hall of Fame: Brochure #2

Hey folks, we're back at the Stars Hall of Fame in Orlando, FL with with another retro-brochure. "Where Dreams Come True" is the big theme of this brochure along with photographs depicting "wacky" tourists reacting (or lusting) over the attraction's wax figures.

YUL!!! Mr. Brynner is featured so prominently it makes me wonder if this was because of some sort of marketing research. "Gentleman, our exhaustive cross-generational surveys tell us that people are 73.6% more likely to visit your wax museum if the brochure prominently features Yul Brynner dressed as his famous role from the King And I."

Super gigantic fold-out with the Fonz right in the center.

This time they don't list the admission prices, but do mention the parking is free.

Stars Hall of Fame

The Stars Hall of Fame in Orlando, FL was owned and operated by the Six Flags company which also ran the famous Movieland Wax Museum in Buena Park, CA.

On the cover of this retro-brochure is a gold Rolls-Royce, and I was informed by a reader that the Movieland in California also had a gold Rolls-Royce. This is interesting because the Movieland Wax Museum in Niagara Falls, Ontario (which a recently blogged about) also featured a gold Rolls-Royce. I guess if you run a wax museum devoted to movie stars you're required to have a gold Rolls on hand.

The Stars Hall of Fame rolled up its red carpet for good in 1984, and Movieland Wax Museum in Buena Park, CA closed in 2005.

The Year in FAIL

This video is pretty hilarious, even if some of the humans in this compilation got severely injured. It's the price you pay for Internet fame.

Movieland Wax Museum

Here's a retro-brochure (I think I just coined that term. Maybe I should trademark it) for the Movieland Wax Museum in Niagara Falls, Ontario.

I said this before , but it always bothers when a brochure doesn't show actual photographs of the attraction. If they only show illustrations it makes me wonder what they are trying to hide.

"See... the majestic, golden Rolls-Royce" is an odd thing to highlight. This is a wax museum after all, not a car museum.

I'm happy to report this attraction is still operating. To see what the Movieland Wax Museum looks like today you can view nearly the entire museum by checking out this walk-thru video by a very thorough YouTuber named niagarafallsvlogger...
