LAS VEGAS (December 2013) – This month marks visitors and locals last chance to see the largest collection of Marvel figures on display at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas: Nick Fury, Iron-Man and Tony Stark and Captain America. Captain America will be showcased until Jan. 14 as he is departing to make room for new figures arriving in 2014. The Marvel collection is located at the entrance of the brand new Marvel 4D.
The new theater now enables guests to see the aforementioned super heroes and Spider-Man save the world from destruction. The theater is the grand finale to the attraction’s renovation. The all-new attraction now offers an array of show-stopping new interactive experiences and a selection of newly added A-list celebrities for every fan. With stunning renovations to seven uniquely-themed rooms and the addition of the Marvel 4D Theater, the completely refurbished and redesigned attraction ushers guests into a series of unforgettable celebrity encounters.
Spanning two years, the renovation and expansion were designed to enhance the visitor’s experience from start to finish.
One of the key differentiators with Madame Tussauds Las Vegas is not only the life-like, true-to-scale celebrities, but also the vast interactive experiences. Become part of Wolf Pack from “The Hangover” by visiting Bradley Cooper inside the infamous hotel room. Become an instant celebrity while sitting in the hot seat during a Jerry Springer taping. Take a place among NASCAR royalty next to Dale Earnhardt. Sing for Simon Cowell— but be ready to be critiqued—or just sing along with musical icons such as Katy Perry, Rihanna and Madonna.
To round out the Marvel experience, step into a pulse-pounding, 70-seat theater that debuts the dynamic Marvel Super Heroes 4D film. The action spills out of the screen over the audience with thrill-enhancing sensory special effects—from water sprays and smoke clouds to tremors beneath the feet.
The film was created by one of the leaders in CGI feature films and 4D attractions, Threshold Animation Studios. For the theater experience itself, Madame Tussauds Las Vegas worked in partnership with SimEx-Iwerks, which specializes in designing, building and operating special F/X driven cinematic attractions that feature blockbuster content from the world’s major film studios. They build successful partnerships that provide 4D Experience® films and services to more than 150 attractions in 30 countries.
Madame Tussauds is open 365 days of the year and opens at 10 a.m. For more information, call (702) 862-7800 or go to www.MadameTussauds.com/LasVegas.
