BEIJING Women's Nike Air Max 95 Pure Platinum Grey UK ,?June 1?(Xinhuanet) -- George Clooney sits in a yard below an engraved archway, while Bruce Lee jumps out through a wall. The Chinese filmmaker Zhang Yimou smiles as he leans on a wooden pillar, red lanterns hanging above his head, while the Peking Opera master Mei Lanfang waves his hands to signal the next phase of music.

Welcome to a brush with fame with wax celebrities at the newly opened Madame Tussauds' waxworks in Beijing.

After two years of preparation, the museum lifted the red curtain on Saturday and welcomed its first visitors. It's the fourth Madame Tussauds in China, after Hong Kong, Shanghai and Wuhan.

Located in the central axis of Beijing at Qianmen Street, a traditional commercial street behind Tiananmen Square Men's Nike Air Max 95 OG White Green UK , the three-story building features eight zones, including The Spirit of China, Leaders, Sports, Music, Film and Television.

"Beijing is the ideal place for the 16th Madame Tussauds. It's an energetic city with a great history and culture," said Craig Dunkerley, head of new openings Asia for the Merlin Entertainments Group Men's Nike Air Max 95 Stussy Triple White UK , which owns the Madame Tussauds brand.

Despite the hot weather, long lines of visitors - young couples, families with children, and students - waited for their turn to see the waxworks. Many had pre-booked their tickets online.

"It took me half an hour to wait in the line and another hour to see the exhibits," said Liu Xi, who bought an opening-day ticket online 11 days ago. She said the large crowds meant there was no opportunity to have her photo taken with her favorite stars.

The museum has room for 2,000 visitors at a time, according to Wang Rui Men's Nike Air Max 95 Black White UK , director of Madame Tussauds Beijing, who added that the opening-day allocation of 3,000 tickets sold out quickly online.

Wang Shemin, who visited Madame Tussauds in London in the 1980s, said he loved the traditional Chinese folding screen behind the wax figure of Clooney.

"I can feel it is Beijing. I know all these Chinese stars," said the 60-year-old.

In addition to decorated traditional courtyards, alleys, rickshaws and red lanterns reminiscent of Beijing Men's Nike Air Max 95 KPU Black Gold UK , the distinguishing feature of the Beijing attraction is the Spirit of China zone, complete with figures of iconic celebrities who have shaped Chinese history.

The writer Lao She, Peking Opera master Mei Lanfang, filmmaker Zhang Yimou, the internet tycoon Li Yanhong and the real estate giant Pan Shiyi are all featured in the zone, which comes directly after the Leaders zone which features world figures such as US President Barack Obama and Russia's Vladimir Putin. All the wax figures were shipped from the United Kingdom.

"The Spirit of China zone has been specially tailored for Beijing, to highlight the role China's capital city plays as a center of culture and politics," said Wang Rui.

It takes 20 workers about six months to finish each figure Men's Nike Air Max 95 Black Red UK , most of whom wear clothes donated by the celebrities depicted.

The makeup and clothing on the figure of Mei Lanfang were applied by Mei's dresser and members of the opera giant's family, according to Wang Rui.

Apart from getting up close and personal with the stars, the museum's interactive features are likely to become major attractions.

Visitors can experience the final 10 seconds of a spaceship's liftoff with astronaut Yang Liwei, play tennis with Li Na, sing karaoke with Jay Chou, play the drums with the rock star Cui Jian, or enjoy the film-making process with the directors Zhang Yimou and Feng Xiaogang.

At present, fewer than 100 figures are on display Men's Nike Air Max 95 Ultra Jacquard Flyknit Grey Black UK , but Wang Rui said more figures of successful people will be added every year.

"I will come and visit again if new figures are added," said Wu Xin, a college student who was there to see the wax figure of his idol, the basketball star Kobe Bryant.

A mouthwatering showdown between Usain Bolt and Justin Gatlin could be a month away as the two rival sprinters are set to compete at next month's IAAF World Relays in the Bahamas.

Gatlin's participation in the May 2-3 event was confirmed on Wednesday in a text message to Reuters by the -sprinter's manager a day after the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association said Bolt will also compete in Nassau.

While Bolt and Gatlin's confirmation for the event -offers a chance for the -sprinters to clash, much will depend on how the Jamaican and US coaches line up their squads in the 4x100 and 4x200 meters relays.

Both Bolt and Gatlin anchored their countries' 4x100 teams at the 2013 Moscow world championships with Jamaica triumphing.

As for a much-anticipated race over 100 or 200 meters, that may have to wait until August's world championships in Beijing.

When asked on Wednesday about the likelihood of a meeting before then, Bolt's manager, Ricky Simms Men's Nike Air Max 95 Jacquard Red UK , told Reuters via e-mail, "I don't know where the other sprinters are running but I believe many meets would prefer not to invite athletes who bring negative headlines to their event."

Simms was referring to athletes who have served doping suspensions, including Gatlin whose racing has sparked -major criticism in Europe despite him being eligible to compete.

The 2004 Olympic champion went undefeated last season, grabbing top world rankings in the 100 and 200 meters in a year when Bolt was often injured.

They have not met since the 2013 worlds, with the Jamaican claiming both sprint titles, but the rivalry is heating up.

"I'd say I'm the guy to beat right now," Gatlin said recently at the Texas Relays.

But Glen Mills, Bolt's coach Men's Nike Air Max 95 Ultra Essential Khaki UK , said the lanky sprinter has nothing to fear. "I don't see Gatlin as a joke, but the truth of the matter is Usain at his best doesn't have much to worry about," Mills said.

Bolt, 28, holds world records of 9.58 seconds in the 100 meters and 19.19 in the 200 from 2009. He opens his 100 meters season on April 19 in Rio de -Janeiro, the 2016 Olympics.
