Hollywood Wax Museum Opens in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee!

Hollywood Wax Museum Pigeon Forge Opened May 11, 2012Exciting cup ‘o news from Hollywood Joe!

The brand new Hollywood Wax Museum in Pigeon Forge opened its doors for the first time at noon today, Friday, May 11, 2012! It will be open 365 days a year from now on, so make sure to Come Play with the Stars at the corner of Parkway Blvd. and Showplace Blvd.


What a lucky day for opening, as today is also Dolly Parton’s 27th annual Homecoming Parade. The salute to hometown superstar Dolly Parton takes place between Light #6 and Light #3 on Parkway staring at 6 pm. Parton will ride on a float with a speaker system so she can talk to fans along the three-mile route. The theme of her float is a secret, but the Pigeon Forge Department of Tourism says it could involve eagles since she just opened Wild Eagle, a $20 million rollercoaster at Dollywood.

The newest Pigeon Forge attraction, Hollywood Wax Museum in Pigeon Forge, is open until midnight, so go the extra mile on Parkway and turn right on Showplace Blvd. at the same driveway as the Country Tonite show. It’s on the north side of Cracker Barrel. Your favorite Hollywood stars are waiting to take pictures with you!

    Just wondering who the four figures are outside the Hollywood wax museum. We know they are Charlie Chaplin, Marilyn Monroe and John Wayned. BUt there is a discussion going on now about whether the fourth is Elvis? We visited and still cannot figure it out. Thanks

    • Hollywood Joe says:

      Hi Judy, They are John Wayne, Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, and Charlie Chaplin. It is a very young Elvis. Thanks for posting!

  5. Shelia says:

    Visited last week. The Elvis figure was not displayed yet. When it is ready will it be the younger Elvis or the Older Elvis. I am hoping the younger Elvis.

    Hey I am visiting in a couple of days and I wanted to know if you have any popular boybands like One Direction and if you have Twilight or Spiderman wax figures? Also what are some of your figures? Thanks for your time

    Will you ever be getting Justin bieber?

    • Hollywood Joe says:

      Thanks for asking Makali. We don’t have him on the schedule right now, but there’s always the possibility. Will definitely make sure to note that he’s been requested! Have a great day.

  10. Breanna says:

    U should really put Justin Bieber on ur list of wax figures to add. I’m sure u already get a lot of buisness, but u would get a lot more if u added him 😉 Im visiting anywhere from August 6-11th and im looking forward to seeing a jb figure by then. Thanks!

    • Hollywood Joe says:

      Thanks for your note and suggestion, Breanna. It takes four to six months to make a wax figure, so we won’t have him by the time you visit, but we know you’ll still have a blast. Stay posted with Hollywood Joe and on Facebook. Thanks!

  11. Martha says:

    Hi. Do you know if you will be getting the One Direction wax vfigures?

    • Hollywood Joe says:

      Hi Martha, thanks for asking. We don’t know of plans to add them at the moment, but always appreciate and consider requests. Will make sure to pass this along. Thanks and have a great day!
