Have you ever heard of Shah Rukh Khan? Cheryl Cole? Jonny Wilkinson? If your answer is no, you’re not going to get much joy out of this ferociously priced, miserably crowded wax trap. The execution of its doppelgangers, which you can usually touch (Harry is behind ropes, girls), is generally superb. That’s not the issue. But the focus of this world-famous waxworks is on British celebrities. A 5-minute, Disney-esque ride, “The Spirit of London,” invokes every conceivable London stereotype, from the Artful Dodger to plague victims. As you glide through, you’ll suddenly wonder if you’re the real dummy here.
