Madame Tussauds has been a ‘must see” in London ever since it opened to the public in 1835. It is said that visitors who stream in here in their thousands are driven by curiosity and a desire to get close to news makers. Whatever it may be the wax works have attracted millions of visitors over the years.
Fourteen zones with over 300 wax figures bring the latest celebrities and news makers to the people. Starting with an A List Party scene the zones cover events such as Premier Night where Hollywood and Bollywood celebrities are shown with some fictional movie characters such as Shrek and Tinker Bell, the smallest wax figure ever made. The Sports Zone is an interactive area where visitors can play a few shots or take up a pose with their favourite sports star. The Royals is an enduring exhibit where visitors can pose with their favourite family member. The Culture section features a long line of icons from the worlds of science, art, architecture and literature among others. Famous singers of all genres are featured ready to perform in a section devoted to Music Megastars. World Leaders is an interesting exhibit with both good and bad news makers. The Chamber of Horrors, one of the museum’s oldest exhibits, depicts serial killers and murderers with the attached Scream, a scare maze. There is also a behind the scenes area showcasing the history of the wax works and to display techniques adopted to make the figures. Other attractions include The Spirit of London, a ride where London taxis take visitors through the history of London starting in the Tudor period and ending in the 1980s. Short 3D movies with special effects are a favourite with the younger set.
Innovation is the key to the popularity of the waxworks. The exhibits are updated regularly and new features added to keep them current and appealing to viewers. As a result visitors can always expect fresh and exciting experiences here.
