LAS VEGAS (January 2014) – To honor men and women who devote their lives to helping make our world a better place, Madame Tussauds Las Vegas is announcing the “Everyday Heroes” campaign for 2014. Inspired by the world-famous Marvel super heroes, including figures currently on display in the Madame Tussauds Las Vegas attraction, as well as by the recent grand opening of its new Marvel Super Heroes 4D Experience, Everyday Heroes will honor specific real-life heroes one day each month during 2014.
Everyday Heroes from across the country will receive complimentary admission for themselves and $8 off regular pricing (child or adult) for up to three of their guests on their designated day when they present valid identification.
Everyday Heroes kicks off on Saturday, Jan. 25, when Madame Tussauds will recognize those working in the law enforcement field. A calendar of subsequent Everyday Hero honorees for the quarter is as follows:
Saturday, Feb. 22nd – Nurses
Saturday, Mar. 22nd – Social Workers (in honor of World Social Workers Day March 19)
“We thought it an appropriate time with the recent addition of our new Marvel super heroes to honor our real, everyday super heroes who are making a difference in our communities,” says Rosita Chapman, general manager, Madame Tussauds Las Vegas.
The new Marvel Super Heroes 4D Experience at Madame Tussauds Las Vegas enables guests to see Thor, Iron Man, Captain America and Spider-Man save the world from destruction. For the first time, visitors can see, hear and feel the Super Heroes save the day. The opening of the theater marks the grand finale to the attraction’s multi-million dollar 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, together with the Marvel Super Heroes 4D Experience, the completely refurbished and redesigned attraction ushers guests into a series of unforgettable celebrity encounters.
In addition, Madame Tussauds Las Vegas offers not only the life-like, true-to-scale celebrities, but also numerous 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. The Everyday Heroes for spring will be announced next month.
