Coney Events: A Political Wax Work



Poster by Jason Lonon
Is it Halloween already, because there is a creep in the air.  Is that patriotism I smell or are they rubbing wax on this election because one candidate has the look of latex while the other is doing a good impersonation of a Disney animatronic president.  Yet, I feel the ghosts of dead presidents are awakening only to wreak havoc on the holiday before the election – or perhaps the election itselfWhich brings me to what I’m really referring to.  Presidential hopeful or not, a demented tour of the old Presidential Wax Works could prove quite rewarding or simply quite creepy.  Don’t take it from me, take it from the work's 70’s old night watchman.  But be warned: Please leave your sanity at the door.

The last leg of Dirty Works At The Wax Works starts tomorrow, Wednesday, 24th 2012!

As the Coney Island USA’s Creepshow at the Freakshow puts it:
DIRTY WORK AT THE WAX WORKS is a demented story told by the 1970's Night Watchman of Coney Island's infamous Presidential Wax Works. If you take his after hours, crackpipe smoking, hallucinated tour though the Hall of Presidents, don't be too shocked or offended, if you hear excessive swearing and encounter excessive graphic violence including:  

A Shooting Gallery Re-Enactment of the Kennedy assassination.

Zombies eating Richard Nixon's brain and a Funeral interrupted by a Booger hanging off of George Washington's nose.


DIRTY WORK AT THE WAX WORKS is October's perfect mash-up of Halloween Horror & Horrifying Presidents!
