October 10th, 2008 · No Comments

If Halloween is approaching, it means many things and one of them is the return of Creepshow at the Freakshow via Coney Island USA. This year’s edition is called Phantom of the Presidential Wax Museum. Per the email from CIUSA:

PHANTOM OF THE PRESIDENTIAL WAX MUSEUM is an interactive show (allow 45 minutes for the complete experience) that tours various rooms at the Coney Island Sideshows by the Seashore building generally not available to the public such as the creepy basement, back stairs, etc. Audience members will take a “tour” of the “historic” wax museum and meet Presidential and First Lady ROBOTS along the way including Lincoln, Clinton, Hillary and Laura, Nixon and finally robots Obama and McCain. Audience will also get to partake in a Presidential Shooting Gallery and fire ping pong ball rifles at Kennedy, Lincoln, Garfield and McKinley. The show concludes with the funeral for an “almost” dead president with Obama and McCain robots competing to give the better funeral speech. Along the tour the audience will hear the “true” story of murder and fire that closed the famed Coney Island Presidential Wax Museum in 1971.

The show runs from October 17-31. Times are Mondays – Thursdays: 7-10 PM, Fridays: 7-11 PM, Saturdays: 4-11 PM and Sundays: 4-10 PM.
