ORLANDO, Fla. – The Rock in wax.

Actor and entrepreneur Dwayne Johnson is the latest Hollywood star to be immortalized at Madame Tussauds Wax Museum in America.

Madame Tussauds is debuting four wax figures of Johnson across the U.S., including one at the Orlando location at ICON Park on International Drive.

The wax figure there is a piece worthy of Johnson’s status as an action movie star — he’s holding onto a rope and “scaling” a skyscraper with a city landscape in the background. The display also has special effects like light, wind, fog and sound effects. Visitors can grab the rope and scale the building with Johnson for photos.

Madame Tussauds also unveiled Dwayne Johnson wax figures in New York, Las Vegas and Hollywood, each one different and shows a different aspect of The Rock’s status as a celebrity and businessman.

“And the thing I’m most amazed with, that we were able to capture with all of these DJ statues around the world, is we captured the energy, the spirit,” Johnson said in an Instagram post about the statues.

The four statues join figures in London and Hong Kong.
