King Kong.

Empire State Building with King Kong

Atop the Hollywood Wax Museum in Myrtle Beach is a replica of the Empire State Building, and clinging to it, in all his glory, is none other than the mighty King Kong.

[Rena Webber, 06/16/2018]

There are similar (but not identical) Kongs at the museum's other locations in Branson, Missouri, and Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, but this is a visual eye-grabber that never loses its appeal.
