Today, Madame Tussauds Blackpool today announced details of their epic new addition with the upcoming launch of its new MARVEL SUPER HEROES area.
The new area will add 5501 square feet to the existing public footprint within the attraction, and will feature four distinct zones, each with a number of new figures, as well as interactive experiences to excite and delight visitors.
Matthew Titherington, General Manager at Madame Tussauds Blackpool said: “We are thrilled to announce the addition of Marvel Super Heroes to the attraction, in an amazing UK first.”
“The new area will be a must-visit destination for all Marvel fans, offering the chance to get up close and personal to their favourite characters from the big screen.
“We are working closely with Merlin Magic Making and Marvel on the design and build to ensure the new attraction is authentic to the comics and offers unique experiences. As many of the interactive elements have are bespoke to Madame Tussauds Blackpool – something UK visitors have never seen before.”
Details of the confirmed zones and characters are as follows, with more currently under consideration and development:
A vintage comic book store filled with Marvel classics and miniature action figures, the store is a portal that will lead them into the real world of Marvel Super Heroes.
Guests will enter a Jotunheim ice cave and come face-to-face with the Asgardian God of Thunder himself, before attempting to lift Thor’s legendary hammer Mjolnir, forged by Dwarven blacksmiths out of the Asgardian metal Uru.
Surrounded by debris and destruction, visitors will encounter the Hulk in a New York street. Guest can then put their strength to the test as they attempt to lift a yellow taxi which has crashed and is covered in debris.
Underneath railway arches, guests will see a series of skyscrapers, where the Daily Bugle has arrived to take a photograph of Spider-Man who is suspended high above the city streets.
Each zone provides a perfect photo opportunity as well as a truly immersive experience – a chance to make magical memories both adults and children alike will cherish. With details on ZONE 4 to be announced shortly.
Marvel Super Heroes is part of the main Madame Tussauds Blackpool attraction and is included in the ticket price, starting from £13.50 for children and £16.50 for adults (additional 20% discount available when tickets are booked online).
