Madame Tussauds Blackpool, (Wax Hands)

For something unusual, how about creating your own personal wax hands. You choose the hand pose & wax colour before dipping your hands into wax.  The process takes a couple of a minutes from start to finish & whilst there is an additional cost for this activity, (Merlin Pass discount applies), it does make for an unusual centre piece for the dining table.  Wax hands are unsuitable for children under 8 years.

Madame Tussauds Blackpool, (Photos)

You can get up close & personal with all your favourite stars and are welcome to snap away as you wish with your own personal device.  As you walk around Madame Tussauds Blackpool, you will come across a number of interactive photo opportunities where you can dress up/use props to pose as you will.  These are additional cost photo opportunities with the photo booth located close to the exit.  You are under no obligation to either pose nor purchase but you can always have a go & check out the end result without forking unnecessarily.
