Madame Tussauds in Blackpool

Never one to turn down a chance to meet Simon Cowell or David Beckham, even if it is in wax, Madame Tussauds Blackpool was the place to visit.  This latest Madame Tussauds opened in 2012 & I must say I was pleasantly surprised with all preconceived thoughts of a re-hashed London Tussauds quickly laid to rest.

Madame Tussauds Blackpool has focused much more on the domestic market with the spotlight firmly on the more populist UK shows such as X Factor, Coronation Street & I’m a Celebrity.

Top Tips for Madame Tussauds Blackpool

1. There are of course plenty of great opportunities to photograph yourself next to our TV celebrities & music/sporting legends, the choice is yours.  Whilst you may see in-house photographers camping out at some of the most popular attractions, you are free to snap away your own photographs too.

2. There are a good number of interactive areas throughout the attraction.  You can try to win the elusive million pounds on Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, take on Tiger Woods at golf, put together your own slot on Jeremy Kyle or enjoy the mirror maze to name but a few.

3. Whilst activities are included within your entrance fee, they can be popular at busy times so it’s not rocket science to suggest you’ll gain more enjoyment if you can visit at quieter times.

Wax Hands at Madame Tussauds Blackpool

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.

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.
