Have you ever heard of Katrina Kaif? Zoe and Alfie? Jessica Ennis-Hill? If your answer is no, you won’t 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. But the focus of this world-famous waxworks is on British celebrities. A 5-min., 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.
